P1 Group recently helped Clark-Thor Construction construct the tram stations for the elevated train (people mover) that run from the Bellagio through the CityCenter to the Monte Carlo resorts in Las Vegas. P1 Group provided HVAC and sheet metal construction. (Click Here to view project profile).
In light of the success of the project, Clark Construction Vice President Jim Day and Thor Construction President Chris Rowe recognized P1 Group’s ability to work in operational areas and nearby other construction with this letter:
Mr. Michael Gossman,
Your efforts on the timely completion of this project and your patience through the ultimate close-out of the project are greatly appreciated.
The Clark-Thor Joint Venture for this project was awarded the preconstruction and construction of the MGM APM project in August 2006. The project was operational for the opening of CityCenter in November 2009, receiving a Temporary Certificate of Occupancy on November 23, 2009; a complete and unconditional Certificate of Occupancy was issued on December 3, 2009.
Your firm’s efforts and expertise were significant contributions on the construction of APM Stations within sites that were scarcely larger than the platform itself. The two sites were located nearly 3,000 feet apart and included traversing at times through, around and under the active CityCenter project. Despite being sandwiched between adjacent construction and operational resorts, your continual care and diligence avoided any unplanned disruption to MGM’s Bellagio and Monte Carlo properties.
The challenges and complexities of completing this project is generally not appreciated by the public including the thousands of patrons that traverse our APM Stations every day. The challenge in the successful completion of this project is appreciated by Clark-Thor and could not accomplished without the efforts of your firm, suppliers, fabricators and the many employees involved with this exciting and hopefully long-lasting project. A completed photograph taken of the Monte Carlo APM Station has been enclosed for your use.
