Konami to Double Size of LV Headquarters

Slot manufacturer Konami Gaming has begun work on an expansion that will double the size of its Las Vegas headquarters.

The company will add a new 193,000-square-foot building adjacent to its current 123,000-square-foot headquarters, which is located on a 12.33-acre site south of McCarran International Airport. The project is slated to be complete in the summer of 2015.

Konami Gaming, which is a subsidiary of video game giant Konami of Japan, will increase staffing levels and consolidate all offices under one roof in the expansion, which will allow the slot-maker to close a satellite corporate office and warehouse facility in Las Vegas.

“What this project shows is the company’s commitment to the gaming industry and the opportunity we see for expansion and growth,” said Thomas Jingoli, senior vice president of Konami Gaming, in an interview with the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “A facility of this size offers us the space we need for the three-to-five-year growth plan we have established for the company.”

The new facility is expected to receive the Silver certification for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED). It will include a subterranean warehouse and assembly facility, subterranean parking, research and development facilities and an automated manufacturing floor.
