On March 13th 2007, the aging Las Vegas Stardust Hotel-Casino was demolished creating space for the new Echelon Project.
In August 2007, Dowco was awarded the contract to detail the 750,000 sq. ft. Exhibition and Convention Center part of the Echelon Project. This 22,250 ton Convention Center structure has 110 meeting rooms divided into 3 Phases, and 36 Erection Sequences consisting mainly of Built Up Plated Columns, BRB Wall Bracing systems and approximately 110 Floor and Roof Trusses.
At Echelon Center, guests are able to visit 4 hotels with a total of 5300 rooms, the largest casino floor at 140,000 sq. ft., 25 restaurants and bars, numerous pool and garden areas, a 4000-seat production theatre for larger concerts and a 1500-seat theatre for smaller shows. This 350,000 sq. ft. retail complex was developed with a variety of high end shops, night clubs, bars, and covered parking for over 8000 cars.
