Las Vegas, NV
Southland Industries, one of the nation's largest MEP building systems experts providing engineering, construction, service and energy service solutions, was recently awarded the Tropicana Club Tower retrofit project in Las Vegas. In addition to Southland, the design-build project consists of Gillett Construction and Marnell Companies.
Spanning more than 481,000 square feet, Southland’s scope of work includes replacing existing cast iron waste piping, isolation chilled and heating hot water valves at main distribution risers, heating hot water risers at vertical fan coils in guest rooms, and horizontal cast iron waste piping in guest bathrooms. In addition, Southland will also be replacing shower valves, domestic cold and hot water systems from the central plant to the distribution of tower systems, and fix tub overflow leaks. The hotel tower will remain open while replacements are being made, in order to do so, a set of back to back rooms for floors one through 21 will be taken out of service one at a time while renovations are being completed.
With the project’s construction phase currently underway, overall project completion is anticipated for April 2017.
