COMMUNITY

121 Martin Luther King in Las Vegas was originally a newspaper printing facility and was remodeled into a communications facility in the 1980s. The latest transformation of this 50+ year old building houses the Clark County Family Services program as well as some Nevada State programs. The scope of work included extensive space planning for the many separate departments. Working with the department heads, Clark County’s Real Property Management personnel and with the Owner/Builder, a solution was created that functionally satisfied the user as well as kept the project within the construction budget.

 

The emergency exiting system did not meet current building code requirements and was completely redesigned. Working directly with the CLV Building and Fire Departments, a solution to create safe exits to the exterior utilizing both existing and new passageways was implemented. The building was also upgraded to accommodate the physically handicapped. Toilets, signage, walking surfaces, hardware, and site access were modified to meet current ANSI and ADA requirements.
