Sands Aviation Hangar
Las Vegas, Nevada, U.S.
Innova worked with the steel fabricator and erector to design rigging and develop an engineered erection plan for the construction of a new private hangar for the Las Vegas Sands Corporation at McCarran International Airport. The hangar roof consists of several heavy, longspan trusses. Because of the low weight-to-length ratio of the trusses, the trusses were evaluated in several configurations to account for shipping, handling, and final erection conditions. Together with the erector and the crane supplier, Innova developed a plan to safely erect the trusses without the need for temporary shoring.
