Gardner Co. along with the University of Nevada, Las Vegas are moving forward with the Harry Reid Research and Technology Park, a 122-acre master-planned research and technology community in Las Vegas. Gardner Co. has been retained by UNLV Research Foundation as master developer of the tech park.
The facility was spearheaded in conjunction with Ed Vance & Associates and the initial plans call for 12 office buildings comprising more than 1.5 million square feet of commercial office space. Upon completion, the tech park will encompass five-story office buildings with steel and concrete structural elements that include glass, stone and efis.
The community will mix technology trailblazers with emerging enterprises, being located in a highly sought-after area of Southern Nevada. Additionally, the expansive park will offer top-of-the-line facilities to accommodate all business configurations. The Tech Park will contribute to the discovery and incubation of new innovative technologies.
Burke Construction Group serves as the development’s general contractor of phase one for the park, while Slater Hanifan Group has been appointed as civil engineer.
