Reno Events Center

Project Architect Fred Graham, AIA, noted that a structure of the complexity and scope of the 118,000 sf Reno Events Center would normally be constructed in 16 months or longer. Especially problematic was a steel fabrication schedule that didn’t deliver steel to the site until the fifth month of construction. Q&D innovated by pouring and placing slab on grade floors before structural steel went up. Q&D craftsmen poured footings, backfilled, and installed 48-inch cut-off corrugated metal pipes to make block-out locations for columns to be installed later. Craftsmen poured and placed 130,000 square feet of concrete throughout the multi-use center.

“I am proud of the work Q&D did on this magnificent structure and on behalf of the citizens of Reno thank you for the workmanship and professional attention you and your company put into construction of the Reno Events Center.”

– Mayor Robert A. Cashell, Sr., City of Reno

FINISH HIGHLIGHTS

While the City of Reno wanted integral color concrete floors in common areas, the concrete slab floors had to withstand the stress of steel erection and lots of cranes leaving tire tracks during construction. Q&D’s concrete crews brought value and efficiency to the equation by installing regular concrete, which was finished at the end of the job with a colored spray top and an epoxy sealer. This allowed the highest level of quality control for a high gloss floor finished in shades of tan, brick red and sage green at a lower cost.
