JCI to Tackle Security/Life-Safety Systems for Las Vegas’ NFL Stadium
Johnson Controls will provide integrated systems, including access control, video management and fire alarms for the future home of the Las Vegas Raiders.
MILWAUKEE — Las Vegas Stadium, currently under construction, will feature integrated security and fire/life-safety solutions by Johnson Controls.
The solutions will help ensure a safer, more secure experience for both fans and staff at the state-of-the-art stadium, the future home of the National Football League’s Las Vegas Raiders.
Johnson Controls, based here, will team with Mortenson Construction and McCarthy Building Companies on the project, which is expected to be completed in time for the Raider’s relocation ahead of the 2020 NFL season.
Through early engagement with stadium ownership and partners, Johnson Controls helps stadiums achieve their desired outcomes, according to an announcement. To help create an environment that is safe, comfortable, connected and efficient, Johnson Controls will provide the Las Vegas Stadium with equipment and technologies, including access control, video management, and fire alarm detection and suppression.
The stadium has also signed a professional service agreement with Johnson Controls to provide lifecycle services, including the maintenance and service of security, fire alarm and fire suppression.
The new facility will feature 65,000 seats (expandable to 72,000), a retractable natural turf field, large operable walls that open to views of the neighboring Las Vegas Strip, and a variety of premium spaces throughout all levels.
In addition to the stadium, the site will accommodate tailgating amenities, parking and a mixed-use commercial development. The Las Vegas Stadium Authority project is expected to be completed in 31 months, according to the release.
“The expertise Johnson Controls has in stadiums and venues made them an ideal partner for this project,” says the Raiders’ Tom Blanda, senior vice president, stadium development and operations. “This is a complex project that integrates a variety of technologies to create a one-of-a-kind stadium experience. It’s important for us to work with partners who understand all aspects of building a stadium as we work toward creating a new home for the Raiders that captures the spirit and excitement of Las Vegas.”
Johnson Controls understands the critical importance of safeguarding today’s stadiums and venues, and recognizes that it requires a proactive security mindset, explains Lisa Roy, vice president of commercial sales, Building Solutions North America, Johnson Controls .
“Integrating the best security and life-safety solutions into a stadium allows fans to enjoy the game in a connected, comfortable and safe environment,” she says. “We look forward to an ongoing partnership with Las Vegas Stadium and are excited to see the Raider’s new world-class home.”
