McCarran Airport in Las Vegas is a showcase for design detail and meticulous hand craftsmanship in terrazzo. A total of 240,000 square feet of epoxy terrazzo was installed to replace carpet and tile. Field colors were selected to complement existing finishes and provide a fully updated look to the terminal without a complete remodel. The assertive design of the new terrazzo floor perfectly captures the character of the city, while providing logical functionality. The 27 beautiful colors are consistently deep and rich, sparkling with mirror, glass and mother-of-pearl aggregate.

The 40-foot diameter medallion, containing 5,000 linear feet of one-eighth-inch zinc strip was installed within 1,200 square feet of terrazzo. All divider strip was hand-bent on-site. Precast terrazzo slabs were fabricated in-house and water-jet cut for extremely intricate designs.

With a border reminiscent of a poker chip, the medallion juxtaposes the city’s historical skyline with present-day landmarks. The vintage skyline references iconic hotels of the city as well as Evel Knievel jumping the fountains at Caesars Palace. In the modern skyline appears the distinctive outline of The Strip as seen today.
