223,003m² of Post-Tensioned Flat Slabs using DYWIDAG Monostrand Systems - Cosmopolitan Resort & Casino
Directly north of the CityCenter project in Las Vegas, another project is currently under construction: the Cosmopolitan Resort & Casino. In addition to suites and condos, this 3.9 Billion Dollar Resort and Casino includes Nevada’s largest fitness and wellness center. Construction of the structure was completed at the end of 2010.
Occupying a surface area of approx. 13,935m² (150,000ft²), the building offers a 1,800 seat show theater as well as meeting rooms. Due to the fact that the hotel had to be built on a plot of land of only 34,398m² (8.5 acres), which is relatively small by Las Vegas standards, the parking garage is located underground.
Within the scope of this project, a total surface area of approx. 223,003m² (2,400,385ft²) of flat slabs is post-tensioned using Unbonded DYWIDAG Monostrand Systems. All in all, DSI supplied approx. 855km (2,805,415ft) of DYWIDAG Monostrand Tendons with standard bare anchorages. Additionally, approx. 610m (2,000ft) of DSI supplied and installed Galvanized Barrier Cables were included in the parking garage.
