NV5 - Las Vegas City Hall

Las Vegas City Hall

This seven-story, 310,000 square foot facility was constructed to replace the existing City Hall building and served as the cornerstone of a downtown revitalization effort. The building consists of one concrete below-grade level, which houses back-of-house functions and provides a secured parking area for government officials. The above-grade portion is glass clad on a steel superstructure and houses government offices, council chambers, and the KCLV television studios.

The facility achieved LEED Gold and reduces annual energy cost by more than $500,000.

The building systems were designed with the assistance of full building energy and daylight modeling (performed by others). The mechanical system consists of a variable flow primary water-cooled chilled water plant and a heating hot water plant with condensing natural gas fired boilers. The electrical system consists of high efficiency lighting, day lighting controls, and photovoltaic — both at grade level and on the roof of the building.

The facility houses a 5,000 square foot data center supplied by standby generators with automatic paralleling switchgear, isolated redundant UPS system, clean agent suppression, and dedicated redundant HVAC systems.
