When transforming a 60-year-old warehouse into the self-styled world’s largest luxury cannabis dispensary in Las Vegas, Nevada, code requirements dictated that the interior framing and glazing at the Rickety Cricket café and Purc coffee shop must be fire-rated to comply, contractors found themselves in a time- and design-crunch. They needed a fire-rated glazing and framing solution that would both match the meticulous and upscale luxury feel that architect Thomas McCleister and interior designers T Square Studio had created, delivered in a hurry to meet deadlines while ensuring the entire project would be safe for all occupants.
Vetrotech provided design assistance and VDS (Vetrotech Design Solutions) framing, doors and curtain wall, along with Contraflam 60 fire-resistive glazing, and ongoing support to glazing contractor IT Works Glass in support of the project. In an industry when production and delivery times can stretch to months, not weeks, Vetrotech was able to manufacture these products in its Auburn, Washington, location, and ship them to Las Vegas within 6 weeks.
Additionally, the prefabricated and light framing proved as easy to install as advertised, saving time and resources for contractors and allowing for a smooth and successful opening of Rickety Cricket and Purc ... all while staying on the safe side.
