Project Description: A joint venture between MGM Mirage and Dubai World, City Center is an unprecedented architectural paradigm for the ideal modern city, with the potential to redefine contemporary urban design throughout the world. The more than $8.5 billion mixed-use development, built on 77 acres along the Las Vegas Strip between the Bellagio and Monte Carlo resorts, confirms a cultural and lifestyle revival of city living. The groundbreaking design introduces a dazzling vertical city in the heart of Las Vegas’ sprawling horizontal grid. As envisioned, City Center represents the most significant privately financed project in the United States.
Project Size: Approximately 18 million square feet
Project Cost: $8.5 billion; estimated Cx $1.5M
Date Completed: 2010
Scope of Work: TMCx provided commissioning services, including third-party life safety testing. TMCx Life Safety was retained by MGM Mirage to serve as the Special Inspection Agency for the mechanical smoke control systems. The extremely fast-track construction schedule and complex life safety systems required a highly skilled and dedicated staff to work around the clock to meet the aggressive completion date.
Project Description: The new, nine-story city hall is being built to house city offices. This project also includes a three-acre park and civic plaza for community events and 3,000 square feet of retail space.
Project Size: 210,400 square feet
Project Cost: $135M
Date Completed: In progress October 2011 the scheduled date
Owner: City of North Las Vegas
Scope of Work and Challenges: TMCx is providing building commissioning services, including third-party life-safety testing, for the North Las Vegas City Hall facility. Early challenges on the project dealt with design reviews. TMCx reviewed the 50% drawings and worked with the design team to deal with deficiencies in the Life Safety arena. Also critical was our review of the Basis of Design to ensure it met the Owner’s Project Requirements. A few OPR’s were negotiated. TMCx also ensured the Commissioning and Life Safety requirements were detailed accurately in the construction documents. Although the project is progressing fairly smoothly, TMCx had to address omitted areas with the design and construction teams.
Project Description: Each Phase of the High Desert Prison consisted of administrative areas, four buildings with six pods per building and twenty-eight cells per pod. Phase IV construction of the prison included an addition to the existing facility which added 1,344 new beds. The construction consisted of concrete tilt up and pre fabricated metal cells with wye chases for the electrical and mechanical systems.
Project Size: 208,000 square foot

Project Description: The TMCx Life Safety Team has performed special inspection services of the mechanical smoke control systems for Summerlin Hospital Medical Center since 2005. This includes new expansions and recertification of the existing smoke control systems. United Health Services retained TMCx for special inspection services of the smoke control system for the new 6-story Bed Tower Addition completed in December of 2009. In 2010, our Team will conduct a facility–wide recertification of the smoke control system.
Project Size: Approximately 170,000 square feet
Project Cost: $100M
Scope of Work: In addition to the mechanical smoke control recertification, our Life Safety Team provided life safety design review. This review confirmed the conformance of the fire alarm and automatic sprinkler systems with applicable codes. On-going testing by TMCx will ensure the smoke control system will continue to perform in accordance with the original design intent.
Adherence to Budget/Schedule: The team effort by the general contractor and TMCx resulted in the project being completed on schedule and under budget, with the entire hospital completely tested and proven functional.
