Facts and Figures:
- The framing system is part new steel and part overhaul of an existing steel truss dome. The new six-story structure is located on the southwest corner of the existing casino and extends partially into the dome.
- 1,190 tons of steel
- Project Duration – 6 months
- Challenges – MGM's desire for the majority of the existing casino and lounge space located under the dome to remain open and active throughout the new construction. This required the design, fabrication and erection of a nearly 80-ft-tall, 200-ft long indoor "temporary" steel wall
