Artificial Landscaping for Tutor Perini
Tutor Perini is an international general contracting, building and civil construction and construction Management Company. Since their arrival in Las Vegas in 1978, Perini has played a large role in the development of Las Vegas including the construction of Aria Resort & Casino, The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, Paris Las Vegas Hotel & Casino, Ritz-Carlton Lake Las Vegas and Terminal 3 at McCarran International Airport, to name but a few of their most notable projects.
This new Corporate Headquarters and Office Facility of Tutor Perini Building Company in Las Vegas originally were designed with a large interior atrium with live plants. While still in the construction phase, the client instructed the architect to look for a permanent artificial planting alternative without changing the original intent. The modern fountains showcasing the atrium at Perini’s corporate offices are adorned with a large selection of artificial trees and plants.
More than a thousand flame retardant artificial plants and flowers were used at this project, which most notably included Chinese Evergreens, Marigolds, Kalanchoes and Bromeliads in addition to the nearly two dozen Artificial Meyer Lemon, Mediterranean Olive and Fiddle Leaf-Fig Trees which handsomely adorn the atrium.
Our team was contacted by both the architect to make a design recommendation and the general contractor who was locked into a budget. A tight timeline further made this project a great challenge.
The end result gave way to the manufacture of over 1,000 individual artificial plants including eight 8 ft. to 13 ft. artificial Olive trees, ten 9 ft. artificial Meyer Lemon trees and three 10 ft. artificial Ficus Lyrata “Fiddle Leaf” trees. All plants and trees were custom designed and manufactured for this project.
