NECA-IBEW Showcases Skills in Unique $11 Billion Commercial Development in Las Vegas, a Feature of "Industry Today" on Industrialinfo.com

SUGAR LAND, TX--(Marketwire - July 15, 2010) -  Researched by Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas) -- If you have visited Las Vegas in the past three years, you probably noticed an immense commercial construction project smack dab in the middle of the Strip. The $11 billion Project CityCenter construction project in Las Vegas was completed on-time and on-budget with the help of a team of 2,500 IBEW electricians from across the U.S. Located on 66 acres on the Strip in Las Vegas, the development encompasses 18 million square feet of building space, including 4,000 hotel rooms; 2,600 condominiums; and six high-rise towers.

The skilled craftsmen of NECA contractors Rosendin Electric and Fisk Electric completed the Mandarin Oriental luxury hotel and spa, the Vdara hotel and spa, the Harmon Hotel, the Verr Towers, the Elvis Theater, a new convention center, and the Aria Resort and Casino, all of which were completed on-time or ahead of schedule. The project involved 15,000 miles of wire-pulling and showcased the unique skills that the IBEW can bring to the table on even the most daunting construction projects. "What we proved on this job is that the NECA-IBEW partnership can be very effective, provide a lot of value to the owner, and provide world-class construction on-time and on-budget," said Mitch Hughes, the Las Vegas division manager for Rosendin Electric, in a recent interview on Electric TV.
