During the downturn, the Las Vegas valley was dotted with buildings and other construction projects that stood in states of partial completion. Many of these were very prominent projects in highly-visible areas.

Like many of the others, Hirschi Masonry helped breath life back into Desert Blue. The project also provided a great opportunity for the Hirschi team to display our versatility, as demonstrated in the video contained in this post.

Our team installed more than 5,000 linear feet of site retaining and perimeter walls in and around the project. Many of the walls consisted of both smooth and split-face block. This work also included radius walls and walls on changing elevations.

We also constructed structural CMU walls on the staircase. In addition to the CMU the Hirschi Masonry team installed more than 2,000 square feet of natural stone veneer (Gold Sonoma Ledgestone). The stone – around the bottom of the main building, on columns and on the staircase – gives the project a stunning look.

But that wasn’t all. Our team also installed the verdure landscape retaining wall (Buff) on the exterior of the project that faces Twain Ave.
