In the fast-paced construction industry in Las Vegas, developers cannot afford to gamble with their projects. It’s no wonder that Aluma, with a proven track record of excellence for complex projects in Las Vegas, was awarded the concrete formwork development on MGM/Mirage’s exciting new CityCenter project. Over time, Aluma established strong presence in the Las Vegas market by providing the best solution for concrete formwork, while gaining the trust of general contractors by meeting and exceeding their expectations on high-profile projects such as Caesar’s Palace, Palms and Paris.
The exciting CityCenter project is the largest privately financed project in the country (estimated $7 Billion). This 66-acre project will establish a complete vertical city directly on the Las Vegas Strip between the Monte Carlo and Bellagio. CityCenter is anticipated to open in 2009 with a 60-storey, 4,000-room hotel and casino, along with two 400-room boutique hotels and 500,000 square feet of premier retail shops, entertainment venues and fine dining. In addition, there will be 2,800 residential units for a unique opportunity to live in this urban metropolis.
Five projects have begun for this complex, and for each of these Aluma will be doing the concrete form work using its advanced column-hung system
“Aluma Hi-Flyer”. Aluma’s market-leading position coupled with strong financial backing allows them the capability to supply such substantial amounts of equipment with the most advanced engineered concrete formwork system
to the equipment-hungry Las Vegas market.
The advanced formwork system enables
Aluma to take on the challenge of aggressive schedules, meeting client requirements
on-time and on-budget. Aluma’s Hi-Flyer system also overcomes the major challenge of ground space issues – in the CityCenter project, the Hi-Flyer components were
shipped to the customer in one piece and put in place using a crane. With its stackable nature, the Hi-Flyer system resolves physical space constraint issues.
With the project in progress, Aluma’s customers have already begun commenting on Aluma’s efficiency and ability to provide the best formwork engineered system in the market. The Hi-Flyer system has significantly improved production time on the Pelli Tower, achieving a remarkable 9-day pour cycle on each 100,000 sq ft floor of the tower.
Gambling may be fervent in Vegas, but if the progress on this project is any indication, Aluma’s advanced Hi-Flyer system provides an excellent way to stack the odds in your favor.
