Curtain Wall Installation: The Cosmopolitan Resort Casino

Las Vegas, NV 

Contractor: Far East Aluminum 

Project Scope

Installation of curtain wall and glass on sheer walls.


  • The type of curtain wall being installed required attachment at both the uppermost and lowermost locations on the panel.
  • Initiating curtain wall installation before completion of the roof required upper floor rigging positions.
  • Frequent moves of the rigging position and tight project timelines required a fast rigging method for sheer walls.


5 double-deck platforms, varying from 25 ft (7.6 m) to
30 ft (9.1 m) long, powered by SC1500 and SC40 traction hoists; sheer wall brackets with double eyes; 16 ft (4.9 m) beam sets rigged with post shores to eliminate counterweights.
