The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA) board approved nearly $1 million worth of upgrades at Las Vegas Convention Center on May 12. Renovations to onsite elevators and restrooms are expected to begin this July.
These renovations are another step for the venue to up its level of customer service as it prepares for its multi-phase expansion onto the Las Vegas Strip.
Starting on July 1, Thyssenkrupp Elevator Corp., the largest producer of elevators in the Americas, will undertake a more than $400,000 facelift on the venue’s elevators. This includes providing new flooring, walls, ceilings, lighting and handrails to existing elevators.
The elevators don’t require any mechanical work, according to Terry Jicinsky, senior vice president of operations, LVCVA.
Additionally, the 24-year-old restrooms located in the Convention Center’s grand concourse will also be revitalized. These bathrooms receive some of the highest traffic at the venue, according to LVCVA staff, which made the more than $500,000 renovation imperative.
Mountain Vista Development, a Las Vegas-based construction company, is expected to start the estimated month-long project in July.
