Monterrey, Mexico - May 27, 2021
- CEMEX delivered approximately 65,000 cubic meters (85,000 cubic yards) of concrete for new Circa Resort & Casino.
CEMEX, S.A.B. de C.V. (“CEMEX”) (NYSE: CX) announced today it supplied more than 65,000 cubic meters (85,000 cubic yards) of ready mix concrete to support the construction of the newly-opened Circa Resort & Casino, the tallest building in Downtown Las Vegas, Nev., and the first new resort property to open in downtown in more than 40 years.
CEMEX ready-mix operations across Las Vegas began delivering concrete for the project in 2019, supporting the efforts of General Contactor McCarthy Building Companies, Inc., to build the approximately 150-meter high (500-foot,) 35-story resort. Circa Resort & Casino is located on the historic Fremont Street in Las Vegas, so throughout construction, CEMEX crews had to successfully and safely navigate through heavy traffic and crowds to deliver on a tight schedule. CEMEX mixer trucks delivered an average of 30 loads of ready-mix concrete per day.
“CEMEX’s operations are growing in Las Vegas, and our ability to help fuel large and iconic projects like Circa Resort & Casino speaks to the strength of our operations and supply chain throughout the southwestern United States,” said Jaime Muguiro, CEMEX USA President. “We are proud to have supplied the high-quality materials for a marquee destination that is expected to be a tourist attraction for years to come.”
The new Circa Resort & Casino opened in Las Vegas in October 2020. The resort boasts 777 hotel rooms, six bars and lounges, six temperature-controlled swimming pools that have an overall capacity of 4,000 people as well as the world’s largest sportsbook with seating for 1,000 people and a three-story high-definition screen.
