Wynn Casino, Las Vegas - Special Structures

Wynn Casino Las Vegas
Project Overview: 
The new Wynn Las Vegas Hotel and Casino contains striking architectural features, some of which McLaren helped design. A public space centerpiece features an atrium with eighteen unique, colorful “parasol” styled hanging elements. These elements rise and lower very slowly to create an ever-changing visual effect highlighted by sunlight through a large, adjacent glass wall. Another notable feature is a large porte cochere at the north side of the building.
McLaren's Role: 
McLaren provided structural engineering services for the framing and overhead rigging schemes of the parasol elements, and for the curved polycarbonate lighting panels with its steel framing that surround the chandelier at the north porte cochere. McLaren engineers worked closely with the contractor to develop the fabrication and construction techniques and conducted a shop visit to view the fabrication progress.
