What other city in the US could have a public works program dubbed Project Neon than Las Vegas? It is the largest and most expensive ($900 Million) undertaking of its kind in Nevada and involves major new infrastructure construction and reconstruction involving I-15 between Sahara Avenue and the Spaghetti Bowl, MLK Boulevard to the west, and Industrial Road to the east. According to the Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT), the 3.7 mile stretch of I-15 covered by Project Neon is the busiest stretch of roadway in NV handling 300,000 vehicles a day with 25,000 lane changes per hour, resulting in three crashes per day. And the vehicle count is expected to double by 2035!

Kiewit Infrastructure West is the project’s contractor/designer and they needed temporary modular office space to accommodate a substantial workforce through the project’s completion in 2019. Kiewit figured on a 10-plex for NDOT by mid-January 2016, a 15-plex for the design firm by late January, and a 20-plex plus a 5-plex for themselves by early March. Kiewit is a Williams Scotsman Strategic Account. Their history with us, fleet availability, customer service, and our account executive’s experience with the Nevada Manufactured Housing Division all contributed to our securing the modular order over our competitor.

We had one month to completely customize, deliver and install the first 10-plex for NDOT by early January. Our Albuquerque branch worked tirelessly through the holidays, weekends – whatever overtime was required – to get seven floors ready. Simultaneously, three floors were shipped to the Las Vegas branch and they made modifications there. It all came together and the 10-plex delivered on schedule.
