Genting Group, the major international hospitality company currently building Resorts World Las Vegas, has selected Otis to build and install various people-moving products at its massive entertainment casino/resort complex on the Las Vegas Strip.
When fully completed, more than 200 units will keep patrons efficiently moving throughout the new resort. Otis, the iconic elevator brand, is a unit of United Technologies Corp.
“Our Otis Las Vegas team created the blueprint for completing casino and resort projects on time,” said Tom Vining, president, Otis Americas. “We’re honored that Genting Group placed their trust in us, and we’re committed to performing uncompromising work in preparation for the 2020 opening of this new Las Vegas landmark.”
More than 80 Otis field mechanics will work together to install units including Otis SkyRise, SkyBuild, Gen2 and HydroFit elevators, NCE escalators, and CompassPlus destination dispatching.
“The Otis SkyBuild elevators can jump quickly to keep pace with construction without any additional heavy equipment,” said Tony Huffer, vice president of construction, Resorts World Las Vegas. “Our workers can use the SkyBuild elevators for safe, indoor transport during construction and then units quickly convert to SkyRise elevators when construction is finished.”
The $4 billion, 3,000-room Resorts World is currently is being built at the northern portion of the Las Vegas Strip by Malaysia-based Genting Group and will include a 100,000-square-foot casino.
Otis, founded more than 160 years ago by the inventor of the safety elevator, offers products and services through its companies in approximately 200 countries and territories.
