Los Angeles, CA – February 20, 2012 – Las Vegas is the home of exuberant, unabashed luxury. So when designers and developers required a security booth that would complement the style of the towering Panorama Condominium Complex, they commissioned B.I.G. Enterprises, Inc. to fabricate it. Two stories high, sheathed in sleek metal, and fronted with a contemporary window grid, the booth epitomizes architectural harmony, melding seamlessly with its surroundings.
Not simply a formidable first line of defense, a guard shelter or booth can also make a refined architectural statement, belying the fact that it may house armed guards, surveillance cameras, robust HVAC systems and myriad electronics. The B.I.G. booth at Panorama Condominium Complex represents a world class, sophisticated style, one that is helping to shape the modern Las Vegas.
“We were pleased to work with such a unique construction project in Las Vegas. Because of our commitment to non-cookie cutter guard shelters, we knew our collaboration with them would produce something pretty unusual.” said Vice President David King.
This unit features heavy insulation in the walls and roof, dual pane insulating glass with Low-E coating, commercial roof mounted HVAC with 3 ton output, all for the severe desert climate.
Additional features include a fully equipped restroom, custom lighting inside the booth and in the upper level to enhance the architectural detail of the upper glass area at night. Built-in counters, shelves, all electrical for data/communications and an impact, fade, chemical and graffiti resistant polyurethane paint finish attest to the completeness and structural integrity of the booth.
Utilizing a proprietary “Critical Span” manufacturing technique, the B.I.G. Two-Story Guard Booth’s galvanized steel construction meets or exceeds ASTM B500 specifications, and all welds meet or exceed AWS-D1.3 and A5.18 standards.
All B.I.G. booths include U.L. approved fixtures and are manufactured in strict compliance with NEC and I.B.C specifications. They meet the local building code standards of every major area in the United States, and around the globe.
Since 1963, B.I.G. Enterprises, Inc. of California has engineered and manufactured a comprehensive line of high quality, high-end, prefabricated security and revenue control booths. Their state-of-the-art selection of pre-assembled buildings include: guardhouses, cashier booths, portable shelters, and a variety of custom-made kiosks.
