Robert Svedberg, principal for Atlanta-based TVS Design, which is heading a team of architects and designers known as Design Las Vegas, on Monday gave a Las Vegas Convention and Visitor Authority committee and an oversight committee supporting the $860 million expansion project an early look at the schematic design phase of the project, which is about half completed.

The multimillion-dollar expansion of the Las Vegas Convention Center that officials say will allow the city to remain at the top of the list of trade show destinations will have a modern design tied by a ribbon-like roof on the outside and iconic imagery inside.
Today, in a historic decision, the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA) Board of Directors approved a recommendation to retain tvsdesign/Design Las Vegas to provide design services for the Las Vegas Convention Center District Phase Two Expansion project. The decision is a tremendous milestone for a project that will secure Las Vegas as the world’s premier business destination for decades to come.
Monday was the Oakland Raiders’ day, with the team’s groundbreaking event for a $1.9 billion domed football stadium.
But Tuesday belonged to the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority board of directors, which unanimously approved the selection of a design team for the expansion of the Las Vegas Convention Center.
After recommendations from LVCVA staffers and a committee coordinating the $1.4 billion expansion and renovation of the convention center, the board approved Atlanta-based TVS Design, which collaborated with four Las Vegas-based architects and designers on the project.
The four local companies are TSK Architects, Simpson Coulter Studio, Carpenter Sellers Del Gatto Architects and KME Architects.
The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority board on Tuesday chose an architect for the Las Vegas Convention Center expansion, reviewed tourism’s effect on jobs and addressed the financing of sports events and the implications of a proposed federal tax bill.
The board agreed with the Las Vegas Convention Center District Committee which earlier this month recommended that TVS Design/Design Las Vegas should be awarded the contract to design the 1.4 million-square-foot expansion of the Las Vegas Convention Center.
