Working with architects PM Design and CSRS and with general contractor Parkway Construction, Wright has not only provided excellent and speedy engineering (much like Cane’s food), but has also worked to develop cost-effective California seismic prototype plans for Cane’s long-term expansion. Cane’s received national press for their “No Employee Left Behind” policy that has guided their corporate decisions throughout the COVID-19 pandemic—wherein not a single employee was furloughed or laid off.
DOWNTOWN VEGAS BUILDING GETS NEW LIFE
Originally a 3-story savings and loan bank constructed in the ‘70’s, this building located at 201 Carson in downtown Las Vegas has been given a new life and a new name: S & L. New features include a rooftop restaurant, a new elevator, and 6-story parking garage, and the entire building structure received a seismic upgrade to bring it up to the current code. A “kinetic art piece” is planned for garage and stair tower. Carpenter Sellers Delgatto is the project’s architect. Bentar Development is the general contractor. Wright Engineers is pleased to have provided the structural engineering.
