One of the busiest meeting facilities in the world, the Las Vegas Convention Center debuted a $1 billion, 1.4 million square foot West Hall expansion in early 2021. The new facility, which connects the Las Vegas Strip to the convention center’s South Hall, boasts a contemporary design and an abundance of natural light. The space also features more than 4,100 linear feet of Trex Commercial’s customized railing. Using 3-D site scanning, Trex Commercial designed railing systems for use on two levels of the grand lobby overlook, the venue’s monumental stairs and adjacent overlooks, multiple sets of switchback stairs and along the skyway bridge. Due to the construction of the stairs, the Trex Commercial team also custom engineered an alternate “false” stringer to securely accommodate the shoe attachment for the glass guardrail. Glass guardrail is also featured along the third-level outdoor terrace, which can accommodate 20,000 attendees and offers stunning views of the Las Vegas Strip.
