High Roller Observation Wheel at the Linq

Las Vegas, Nevada, U.S.A

The High Roller is a 550-foot tall, 520-foot diameter giant ferris wheel on the Las Vegas Strip. This project consisted of shoring and falsework design for the foundation. Innova provided this to the contractor in addition to 3D coordination of all trades and assisted with the development of the engineered erection plan to set the anchor bolts and rebar for the five-column piers that support the wheel. The project was completed in 2014 and is the centerpiece of the popular, world-class mixed-use development.

The anchor bolts and shear key assemblies, weighing in excess of 35,000 pounds, needed to be supported at precise elevations and angles to marry with the wheel structure.

The design utilized a fixed frame that straddled the pier construction and a rigging frame that was shop attached to the assembly so the crane could fly the assembly into position. Innova provided engineered drawings and fabrication drawings for all frames and rigging.
