"We re-created the Italian Renaissance in the Nevada desert for the largest themed structure ever built. "

Midwest Drywall was responsible for the historically accurate theming of this massive hotel, casino, resort, and convention center replicating the look and feel of old Venice. Essentially, we re-created the Italian Renaissance in the Nevada desert for the largest themed structure ever built. We used cast products and modern construction techniques, some never before attempted. Guided by more than 3,000 photographs for precise architectural and historical reference, our craftsmen created a 105,000 square-foot sky ceiling, 121,372 square feet of interior facades, plus 30,000 square-foot in Market Hall and a campanile tower 315 feet tall with 2,500 pieces of faux marble at its base. We did it all: from preliminary budgeting to in-house art direction, from value engineering to detailed drawing substitutions, and on to skyart and installation and finish of component art. We gave gigantic new buildings the patina of age. We themed an entire cityscape down to the last weathered stone, all the while adhering to an aggressive schedule of fast-track construction.
