The eight-story, 308,990 sq. ft. City Hall is a steel-and-glass skinned structure on 2.71 acres has a 500-seat chamber council, 250,000 sq ft of office space and public exhibit areas.
The development touts the latest in sustainable building technology. The project is anticipating a LEED silver certification. The building features a 40,000-sq-ft public plaza along Clark Street with 33 solar trees that were painted by KHS&S that double as pedestrian shade awnings.
KHS&S was contracted to provide BIM modeling at the Las Vegas City Hall. The work included a “Kick Off” meeting to review the project, the needs, the “Big Room” meeting dates, clash detection dates, and sign offs. KHS&S coordinated the main model and incorporated the other trades elements into one working model. The BIM modeling helped create opportunity to save costs by not having to move walls or MEP’s due to unexpected placement as well as facilitate a schedule that had no room to move.
KHS&S’ scope of work included interior framing/drywall, exterior framing and metal panels, insulation, fireproofing, acoustical ceiling, interior paint, Venetian plaster, fiberglass.
