Aviators Ballpark/Las Vegas Ballpark

The new ballpark constructed for the Triple-A Las Vegas Aviators team hit a home run with the design and materials specified for the project. Howard Hughes, owner of the Howard Hughes Corporation and the Aviators team, bought the 25,000-acre land in 1952 where the future ballpark would be built. To manifest the 10,000-person capacity ballpark into existence, Devin Norton, a designer with HOK, delivered a design inspired by the corporation owner’s desert and aeronautical history. The base reflects the Red Rock Canyon and Summerlin, Nevada area, while the upper portion of the ballpark uses a mix of steel, glass and metal, similar to aviation materials.

To achieve the desert aesthetic on the base, 31,000 square feet of PAC-CLAD Snap-Clad panels from Petersen Aluminum was installed. The Snap-Clad panels are typically used as roofing panels but were specified for the exterior walls in repeating patterns. In addition, these metal panels are coated in a custom Chocolate Chip Fluropon® finish from Sherwin-Williams Coil Coatings, helping to complete the desert landscape look. The stunning Aviators Ballpark is now a cornerstone of downtown Summerlin.
