Second Place

Project:Las Vegas Convention Center - Building and Plenum As-built
Location:Las Vegas, Nevada
Owner:Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority

The renowned Las Vegas Convention Center in Nevada, set out to expand the center yet again under an $800-million renovation contract. The master architect called in a team of professional surveyors to document the existing conditions and deliver accurate 2D building floor plans, a unified structural grid system and three-dimensional above-ceiling plenum models—all within three months and while the facility remained fully operational. Using an arsenal of the latest technologies, including GPS, digital levels, robotic total stations, HDS laser scanners and reflectorless total stations with measurements shot straight into CAD in real time onsite, the teams accomplished the project on time and within budget. “This project required a wide breadth of expertise that spanned both building survey and traditional land survey, utilized a wide variety of the latest technologies and demonstrated the importance of establishing a solid control network,” says team member John Russo. The team overcame the logistical nightmare of working in a busy convention center and demonstrated how independent firms can combine resources to accomplish tasks that otherwise would not be possible.
