Resorts World: A Glassy Addition to The Strip

Designed by Steelman Partners, the $4.3 billion Resorts World is an all-in-one resort, mall and casino on the Las Vegas Strip. It opened last June and is the first integrated resort built in the area in over a decade. The resort’s shopping concourse, “The Spine,” features a $50 million LED globe and is lined with 2,500 linear feet of Trex Commercial Glass Guardrail on five floors. Trex Commercial also used CNC sheet metal laser technology to ensure precise cutting for 1,200 linear feet of mirrored stainless steel cladding, which helped the structure earn LEED Gold Certification.

Los Angeles-based Giroux Glass installed the interior and exterior glazing for the property. The curtainwall system for the Spine used 36,500 square feet of glass. The podium portion included 10,000 square feet of glass installed into a 55,000 square-foot curtainwall system.

Other glass and glazing suppliers include Assa Abloy, Arcadia, Viracon, Panda Windows & Doors, PRL Glass Systems, Glasswerks, Pulp Studio, Architectural Glass, CRL, Frameless Hardware Company and Pohl Facades.
