McCarran International Airport
LAS VEGAS, NEVADA
SME Steel embraced the challenge of McCarran International Airport when no one believed the project could be done and successfully accomplished it in less than four months. The terminal size reaches an astounding 300 feet wide by 2280 feet long and includes one basement floor, two main floors, a low roof and a high roof. 60-80 truckloads of steel were delivered each week as four cranes continuously and collaboratively organized efforts. The complicated design required thousands of individual details comprising unique shapes. Large trusses (100ʹ long x 6ʹ deep) were fabricated to accommodate four major and four minor skylights. The AESS provides the crowning touch, showcasing skill and craftsmanship. SME Steel completed this complex project six weeks ahead of schedule.
