las vegas logoThe Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority is in the process of executing another consulting contract for work related to the Las Vegas Global Business District.

 

California-based Cordell Corp. will be paid $40,000 per month for six months, a total $240,000 for the contract. The partnership was approved by the authority’s board of directors at their meeting Tuesday morning.

 

Cordell is a management firm that aids the development and renovation of high-profile facilities, such as arenas, museums and convention centers. Its services for the authority will include developing project schedules, costs and impacts for the Las Vegas Global Business District.

 

The privately held Cordell’s co-owner and executive vice-president, Terry Miller, has a history with the convention authority. He was CEO of HNTB, an infrastructure solutions firm that worked with the authority from 2006 to 2009 as master architect for renovations of the Las Vegas Convention Center.

 

The Global Business District is the authority’s $2.5 billion project that calls for aesthetic
improvements, technological enhancements, a world trade center and overall Las Vegas branding in the areas leading up to and including the Las Vegas Convention Center at 3150 Paradise Road.

 

“This is monumental for the whole region,” said Las Vegas Councilman Steve Ross, who is also a director. He emphasised that because of the project’s scope, he wants the authority to use local talent whenever possible.
