The Stratosphere Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas has been a landmark since 1992. Standing at 1,149 feet tall, this represents the tallest building in Las Vegas and the tallest hotel in the United States. When the hotel casino was purchased by Golden Entertainment, it was rebranded as The STRAT which included a full overhaul including a $100m renovation. Yaham was selected as the design-build partner based on the eye-catching custom displays Yaham is known for.
The STRAT and Yaham teams worked closely throughout the entire process. The STRAT LED renovation occurred in three phases:
1. Design and installation of the Sportsbook
2. Design of the porte-cochere
3. Design and installation of the tower display
Although these phases began and were managed independently of each other, Yaham overlapped several elements to maximize efficiency and stick to the schedule. The entire process was managed by an on-site team and used the expertise of Yaham’s certified master electricians and project managers.
Golden Entertainment wanted an alluring entrance at the Las Vegas Boulevard intersection to create a bold, welcoming experience. They also requested an update to the interior displays in the Sportsbook. A primary concern of ownership was to minimize any disruption to their guests while maintaining smooth business operations during the process.
The entire project was conducted during COVID-19 restrictions, so our team had to work with a flexible schedule to install essential features when it was safe and effective to do so. The tower still offered thrill rides, such as the SkyJump, so the project had to be organized around these entertainment schedules.
Another challenge to designing the port-cochere was creating a new look that harmonized with the main building's pre-existing structure. Our team worked carefully with the existing designs to create LED features that dovetailed perfectly with the curved radius of The STRAT exterior.
All three phases of the project were handled on time and on budget by our in-house team of designers, electricians and technicians. Starting with the Sportsbook, Yaham created a digital montage of curved, ceiling-hung displays offering broad viewing angles. The innovative porte-cochere was designed to match with the existing structure to promote The STRAT and mark its place on Las Vegas Boulevard.
And The STRAT tower sign, using 25mm diodes in the past, was updated with a modernized 16mm LED display. This new sign is a vibrant, energy-efficient, and a 360 degree wow-factor on the Las Vegas skyline.
