SUSHI SAMBA

Description

SushiSamba was a restaurant build-out in an existing hotel (the Palazzo). Hotel operations had to continue with minimal disruption while construction was taking place.

Further complicating the job was its signature design element, a fiber glass ribbon that wound through the space. As a result, the project design evolved during the construction phase. Both the budget and deadline were tight, and the approval process in Clark County, Nevada, is notoriously difficult.


Challenges

  • Scope of the project
  • Budget constraints
  • Project designed as it was being built

Strategy

  • Designed and mocked up the glass piece by piece in a warehouse, then transported
    it piece by piece to the site to ensure it met all codes and requirements and met the
    approval of both the designer and the owner
  • Coordinated construction with the hotel’s operations to avoid disruptions
  • Used relationships with Clark County agencies to streamline approvals and minimize
    delays and expenses

Results

A world-class restaurant worthy of Las Vegas was completed on time and within budget.
