CRL-U.S. ALUMINUM PRODUCTS AND FABRICATION SERVICES SHOWCASED AT GRAND BAZAAR SHOPS LAS VEGAS

Doors, Storefront, Curtain Wall, and Shop Fabrication Lend Project Efficiencies and High Performance to Immersive Outdoor Retail Hub

LOS ANGELES, CA - JUNE 17, 2015 - The ever-growing entertainment mecca of Las Vegas has brought a new retail and dining destination into its fold, aptly named Grand Bazaar Shops. Situated across from the Bellagio fountains, Grand Bazaar Shops sits on two acres of land and will feature more than 120 retail spaces for visitors to enjoy. Several of the retail shops consist of first-to-market brands.

Developed by Larry Siegel and Juno Property Group, Grand Bazaar Shops combines a contemporary retail experience with elements reminiscent of world-renowned open-air markets. The $50 million project is highly visible, and is expected to attract over 20 million visitors each year.

When it came to fabrication and construction, architectural products manufacturer CRL-U.S. Aluminum was contracted to provide key elements for the new retail destination. From storefronts and entrance doors, to curtain walls and glass railings, CRL-U.S. Aluminum products can be found throughout Grand Bazaar Shops. The products used were designed and engineered to not only enhance the aesthetics of the high-concept retail venue, but also to ensure that the shopping center can withstand the constant flow of traffic. Given Grand Bazaar Shops' strategic location at the busiest pedestrian intersection in Las Vegas, high performance and durability were essential criteria.

Installed by Avanti Glass and Mirror, Grand Bazaar Shops' units are outfitted with CRL-U.S. Aluminum Series FT451 Flush Front™ Storefront Systems in conjunction with Series 400 Medium Stile Entrance Doors featuring patent pending CORNER-LOC® construction-the strongest corner assembly in the industry. CRL-U.S. Aluminum simplified the storefront installation process using its KD Storefront Fabrication Program. With the program, all materials are completely fabricated in the company's ISO9001:2008 certified facilities. Because storefronts are delivered installation-ready with assembly instructions and hardware included, it saves the installer time while reducing labor costs.

Other areas of the building front are outfitted with Series 3250 Curtain Wall System. Series 3250 is characterized by a 2 ˝" profile width and a thermal spacer interlocked within the pressure plates for enhanced thermal performance to counter the region's temperature extremes.

"CRL-U.S. Aluminum's level of project support was very professional," says Ty Penn, Project Estimator and Manager at Avanti Glass and Mirror. "The job went smoothly and was completed ahead of schedule thanks in part to CRL-U.S. Aluminum's fabrication work. They helped make this a successful and profitable project."
