The Bleutech Park Las Vegas is set to break ground in the Las Vegas Valley this December. The local architect of record is Melvin Green, principal at KME Architects.
The mixed-use development, sponsored by Bleutech Park Properties, is expected to cost more than $7.5 billion by the time it is completed in six years. The project will include a hotel, residences, offices, retail space, workforce housing and entertainment venues. The high-tech facility will also be a model for energy generation and storage, waste-heat recovery, water purification, on-site waste treatment and localized air cleaning.
Flooring systems within Bleutech Park Las Vegas will capture and reuse the energy of human movement throughout the park, including common areas and parking structures. Resources for heating, cooling, lighting and electricity will be harvested on-site.
Bleutech Park buildings will be connected to a broader highly sustainable network of “supertrees,” allowing for a 95 percent reduction in imported water consumption and an opportunity for improved biodiversity.
Interface points among all technologies will be used throughout Bleutech Park.
Finally, photovoltaic glass will be standard in all structures, turning entire building exteriors into single solar panels, committed to zero-carbon emissions and harvesting solar energy for use and providing 100% grid-independence.
Aerial construction will be utilized in the creation of Bleutech Park Las Vegas, and unmanned aerial systems will aid in hard-to-reach or unsafe places during construction.
Some of Bleutech's partners include construction contractor Martin-Harris Construction and technology company Cisco.
