Nevada– On June 15, an estimated 1,300 people gathered at the Green Valley Ranch Resort to learn about the estimated $1.9 billion, 65,000-seat domed football stadium being built for the Oakland Raiders when they relocate to Las Vegas for the 2020 National Football League season. Details about the Las Vegas stadium project were shared and contractors hope to begin later this year and have the project complete by June 2020.
The first procurement bidding will be for structural steel and precast, plumbing, electrical, fire protection, elevators, escalators, heating and air conditioning controls and the stadium’s lightweight, transparent Ethylene Tetrafluoroethylene (ETFE) roof. ETFE is a co-polymer resin that is pressed into a thin film. Contractors for the Las Vegas stadium project will issue the first of six procurement bid requests July 3 and expect prospective bidders to return proposals by the end of that month.
