This two-building complex was created by utilizing common concrete tilt-up
panels as the major building component and highlighting them in a unique and
creative perspective. The exterior concrete panels range in size, intersect each
other at different angles, come through exterior walls and contemporary
appearance. The entrances of both buildings showcase generous plazas,
creating a courtyard effect. Skylights are also featured throughout each
Lochsa Engineering helped contribute to the success of this unique building
complex by engineering the 9,000 and 27,000 square foot buildings plus
balancing the parking and landscaping requirements established by Clark
County, Nevada. The flood control design efforts included hydrologic and
hydraulic analysis of storm runoff flows within the existing US Army Corps of
Engineers (USACOE) Lower Blue Diamond Channel through the site. Lochsa
Engineering obtained the required USACOE approval to drain into the channel.
