DYWIDAG Monostrand for a City within the City: Las Vegas CityCenter
Las Vegas is a city that is continually changing and creating new superlatives. One of these superlatives is CityCenter Las Vegas, which is currently under construction. Framed by the well-known Excalibur Hotel and Casino, the New York New York Hotel and Casino complex and the Bellagio Hotel and Casino, CityCenter Las Vegas is the new city center located directly on the Strip.
Eight famous architectural offices including Pelli Clarke Pelli and Daniel Libeskind have been involved in the project, which is financed by MGM Mirage and Dubai World. The CityCenter is one of the largest privately funded construction projects in the United States.
In addition to four hotels, two towers and a retail and entertainment district, the area will also include an exhibition with works of art by Nancy Rubens, Maya Lin and other artists. The project on the Las Vegas Strip has a surface area of approx. 1,560,500m² (16,797,000ft²).
It is designed as an independent city within the city and will even have its own power plant and fire station in addition to the Strip’s first supermarket. The new complex contains only one casino. The hotels and condominium buildings focus on other core aspects instead.
The impressive large scale project will be completed in 2010. Due to very short construction time, and due to the excellent experiences that have been made with the DYWIDAG Monostrand Systems in the past, four of the new structures contain DYWIDAG Monostrand Systems. In addition, DYWIDAG Strand Post-Tensioning Systems were used for tensioning structurally important girders in the Veer Towers.
DYWIDAG Post-Tensioning Systems are characterized by their quick and easy installation. DSI began supplying monostrand systems in Las Vegas in 1991. Thanks to their technical advantages, high quality and superior service, DYWIDAG Monostrand Systems have been successfully installed in most of Las Vegas’ casino hotels and a large number of parking structures.
