Treasure Island

Treasure Island Casino in Las Vegas

Designed by YWS Architects of Las Vegas, Nevada, Zahner provided the engineering and fabrication of two large winged stainless steel elements at the northeast side entry of the casino. Thes "wings" are constructed of steel tubing and aluminum ZEPPS™ Components, and were clad with an aluminum sheet sub-surface and then finished with stainless steel skins.

Each of the wings were finished with a different alloy of stainless steel, to create a color distinction between the two. The east wing was finished using a brushed stainless steel surface. The west wing with PVD coated stainless steel panels for a copper hue.

The PVD Coated Stainless is a high-performance surface that can be used to acheive gold, copper, bronze, and brass tones in stainless steel.  This is a surface which is less common now that Zahner has introduced Ti-Stainless steel to the architectural community, with its greater range of hues at similar expense.

The project was an early use of the ZEPPS™ Process for building complex curvilinear forms. The forms were each clad using flat-seam panels.

Each wing is approximately 32' tall. The units were constructed in Kansas City and transported to Las Vegas for erection.
