Las Vegas Convention Center – Phase II Sky Tram

Mission Critical responded to an urgent request from Aeromovel in regard to the Call for Preliminary Proposals for the new Sky Tram project as part of the $935M Las Vegas Convention Center District Phase II Expansion. Although Aeromovel had already written their own Statement of Proposal, the Brazil-based company contracted us to deliver an eight-page, stand-alone executive summary to accompany the proposal that was to be submitted in less than a week.

This project was not our typical heavy civil construction work. The international element of this project posed unique challenges that Aeromovel needed to overcome; the engineering team was based in California, the key Subject Matter Experts were based in various locations across Europe, and the proposing entity was located in Brazil. Not only was this challenging as an aspect of the proposal, necessitating a deeper demonstration of team synchronicity and mobility, it posed problems for the development of the executive summary document which required coordination between all parts of this proposing team.

To create an appropriately informative and strong executive summary document, the Mission Critical team flexed to accommodate work windows across the three continents. We leveraged our agility as a team and our technology to produce a high-quality document despite the challenges. We used video conferencing to ensure same-page content development and collaborative review tools to facilitate faster commenting and review cycles. Additionally, we managed the final print of the document and hand-delivered it to the Las Vegas engineers on the day of the submittal to be certain that it was included with the final proposal document submitted separately by Aeromovel.

Mission Critical’s design and content teams are uniquely prepared for such quick-turn projects with the added obstacle of varied work windows across time zones – and continents. We enjoyed the challenge of this project, demonstrating our quick mobilization and flexibility to work with new clients in new markets, while providing our trademark quality of layout and design, graphics, and content.
