Bleutech Park unveils plans for £6bn mixed-use scheme in Nevada, US
August 02, 2019 – Real estate investment trust Bleutech Park Properties has announced plans for a $7.5bn (£6.1bn) mixed-use project, Bleutech Park Las Vegas, in the Las Vegas Valley in Nevada, US.
The firm plans to break ground on what it claims to be a first-of-its-kind digital city in December 2019 and complete the construction in six years.
Expected to redefine the mixed-use environment, the Bleutech Park Las Vegas will feature workforce housing, offices, retail space, as well as ultra-luxury residential, hotel, and entertainment facilities.
Additionally, the mixed-use scheme will feature automated multi-functional designs, renewable energies, autonomous vehicles, artificial intelligence (AI), augmented reality, Internet of Things (IoT), robotics, supertrees, and self-healing concrete structures.
Bleutech’s partners for the project include construction contractor Martin-Harris Construction and technology firm Cisco.
Martin-Harris Construction president Guy Martin said: “We are excited to once again help redefine construction methods here in Las Vegas.”
The park will comprise net-zero buildings which will be powered by renewable resources, including solar, wind, water and kinetic energy.
Bleutech Park Properties CTIO Bertrand Dano said: “Bleutech believes in the rise of digitization and robotics in construction as this will increase productivity and efficiency.”
The exteriors of the buildings are planned to be equipped with photovoltaic panels, making each building to be 100% grid-independent.
Bleutech said that advanced flooring systems will be used to generate energy from human movement, while the buildings will be connected to supertrees allowing a 95% reduction in imported water consumption.
Cisco official Mike Grigsby said: “We look forward to playing an integral role in this ground-breaking initiative, which will deliver a one-of-a-kind experience to its guests and visitors. It will push the envelope of innovation and bring together technology solutions that once seemed like pure science fiction.
“The convergence of the Internet of Things (IoT) and Smart Cities in a project like this challenges the way we define both of those solutions. It opens our thinking to what is truly possible and reveals just how expansive the connected communities concept really is.”
