RFQ issued for $1.4bn Las Vegas convention center revamp

The search is getting under way for an architectural team and a construction manager for the US$1.4bn expansion and renovation of the Las Vegas Convention Center.

The scheme has now been approved by the Las Vegas Convention & Visitors Authority (LVCVA) Board and the organization is set to begin soliciting submittals of qualifications from local, regional and national architectural professionals. Qualifying firms and/or teams will be asked to submit proposals detailing specific information regarding their approach to the project. Finalists will deliver public presentations in a design competition before a firm/team is selected.

LVCVA staff worked in partnership with Cordell Corporation principal Terry Miller, the agency’s appointed builder representative, to develop the vision for the expansion and renovation project.

The convention center expansion and renovation is expected to support nearly 14,000 construction jobs and nearly 7,800 full-time permanent jobs upon completion. 

The expansion and renovation will be completed in a phased approach with a projected completion date of 2023. Phase 1 will be the construction of the new 1.4 million-square-foot expansion with 600,000 square feet of exhibit space and the accompanying meeting rooms and support space. This phase is projected to be complete by 2021. The second phase will be the complete renovation of the existing 3.2 million-square-foot facility. The phased approach will ensure that no business will be displaced during the construction and renovation.
