GCW provided civil engineering design for the Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health, a research facility built as part of the 61-acre Symphony Park arts and sciences development in downtown Las Vegas. The 5-story complex consists of approximately 50,000 square feet and house clinical space, a diagnostic center, neuro-imaging rooms, physician offices and laboratories devoted to clinical research, a museum, and a community auditorium. The Institute also serves as the headquarters for the Keep Memory Alive foundation, the Las Vegas Alzheimer’s Association, and the Las Vegas Parkinson’s Disease Association. The facility was designed by world-renowned architect, Frank Gehry. The building is situated on the 1.9 acre parcel located at the corner of Bonneville Avenue and Grand Central Parkway. GCW services include extensive coordination and onsite improvements for buildings, courtyards, meandering sidewalks, storm drain/trench drain system, and vehicular business access. The entire 61-acre Symphony Park project received Stage 2 LEED Gold Certification and was accepted into the LEED for Neighborhood Development pilot program.
