Las Vegas approves courthouse P3

The City of Las Vegas has approved a contract with a developer to deliver a courthouse P3.

City council gave the go-ahead for a contract with The Molasky Group of Companies to develop a $56.3m municipal courthouse.

A spokesperson for the authority told P3 Bulletin: “I believe all of the signatures are in place and the contract is being attested by the City Clerk. The land purchase will happen immediately and the project will be moving forward immediately.”

The team includes The Molasky Group (developer), Martin Harris Construction (general contractor), PGAL (lead architect), X-9 Design Group (design architects), Walter P. Moore (structural engineer), MS Engineering (MEP and ITS) and GCW Engineering (civil engineers).

American Nevada Corporation was the only other bidder for the project.

The city issued a request for proposals (RFP) in 2016, replaced earlier this year by another RFP to update the scope of works.

Consisting of a four-story, 139,431sq ft complex located at the south-west corner of Clark Avenue and 1st Street, the project will house the city's municipal court functions, including traffic court, six additional courtrooms, the city attorney's office, customer service, court administration, classrooms and public space. 

Construction is scheduled to commence around August 2019 and the project will be complete by January 2021.
