The Raiders sports and entertainment venue will provide a safe and secure experience for fans and staff

MILWAUKEE (February 6, 2019) — As the building partner of Las Vegas Stadium, Johnson Controls will integrate innovative and complex security and life-safety solutions into the new Las Vegas Stadium in Paradise, Nevada – the future home of the National Football League (NFL) Raiders. The solutions will help ensure a safer, more secure experience for both fans and staff at the state-of-the-art stadium. Johnson Controls will team with Mortenson Construction and McCarthy Building Companies on the project, which is expected to be complete in time for the Raider’s relocation ahead of the 2020 NFL season.

Through early engagement with stadium ownership and partners, Johnson Controls helps stadiums achieve their desired outcomes. To help create an environment that is safe, comfortable, connected and efficient, Johnson Controls will provide the Las Vegas Stadium with equipment and technologies, including access control, video management, and fire alarm detection and suppression. The stadium has also signed a professional service agreement with Johnson Controls to provide lifecycle services, including the maintenance and service of security, fire alarm and fire suppression.

The new facility will feature 65,000 seats (expandable to 72,000), a retractable natural turf field, large operable walls that open to spectacular views of the neighboring Las Vegas Strip, and a variety of premium spaces throughout all levels. In addition to the stadium, the site will accommodate tailgating amenities, parking and a mixed-use commercial development. The Las Vegas Stadium Authority project is expected to be completed in just 31 months.
