The futuristic mini-city is already making a buzz as it promises to be completely off the grid. The $7.5 billion project, Bleutech Park, will be built on the south end of the Las Vegas strip and it could redefine Las Vegas Skyline.
“I don’t think the world has ever done anything like this before,” Bleutech Park spokesperson Tom Letizia told FOX Business. “I’m excited. I’ve been working in public relations for the last 30 years here in Las Vegas. I’ve never had a project like Bleutech Park.”
She further commented, “All of our emerging companies that are participating in this project will be manufacturing in southern Nevada and that’s another tremendous economic boom for our community.”
The Las Vegas skyline can’t be compared to that of any other city. The Strip’s neon glow can be seen from across the valley.
Who is involved in the project?
Bleutech Park Las Vegas LLC. Will host its first public vendor/supplier/employment outreach in the first quarter of 2020.
“Bleutech Park believes in diversification and inclusion when it comes to employment opportunities,” added Melvin Green, Principal of KME Architects, the architect of record for Bleutech Park. We are committed to hiring more women-in-construction and minority-owned firms, providing training to the workforce of the future with ample opportunities for growth.”
“We have consensus with our partners who are leaders in technology and construction industries, especially with those technologies currently being created overseas, to manufacture their products here in Las Vegas, Nevada,” says Bleutech Park spokesperson Tom Letizia. “It’s exciting to have both national and international partners planning to locate their manufacturing facilities here in Southern Nevada and to hire locally.”
The project is set to be funded privately by institutional and private equity investments and will take around 6 years to complete.
The company has joined forces with Martic-Harris Construction and tech-company Cisco in hopes of executing their vision precisely.
Plans for the smart city
Bleutech Park Properties proposed designs for the exterior of buildings to be giant solar plans by making use of photovoltaic glass, achieving 0 carbon emissions in supplying the city.
Interestingly, the company is planning to use unmanned robots to perform unsafe tasks or hard to reach areas during construction. Bleutech Park Properties, Inc., CTIO, Bertrand Dano said, “Bleutech believes in the rise of digitization and robotics in construction as this will increase productivity and efficiency. We’ll see how that impacts the Las Vegas skyline
Wearable technology will increase workplace safety, particularly in heavy lifting and repetition. We believe in the future of robotics and their ability to improve job-site safety and employee’s health.” Aside from this, the company is planning to hire around 25,00 jobs during the development phase.
The flooring in the future city will be able to absorb and convert energy from human movement to be used for things like heating, cooling, and electricity. In terms of water consumption, the company is planning to reduce imported water consumption by 95% by connecting the park’s building to a network of supertrees.
