Image Construction -- Construction Company Finds Niche.

Business Editors/Building & Construction Writers


In a town where construction companies have been kept busy building new megahotels year after year, one company has found an unusual niche that sets it apart from the rest. Image Construction builds specialty-themed parks, restaurants and retail stores that keep developers coming back with more and more business.

Image is the company developers call when they want something unusual or provocative, when they want to be set apart from the rest of the attractions on the Strip and when they want to attract the highly coveted tourist market.

Robert M. Thorniley, president of Image Construction said the backbone of the company's success is the vast degree of experience and professionalism the team brings. Image is responsible for building some of the largest and most prestigious projects in the nation, delivering them on time and under budget without sacrificing quality.

Image is proud of its creative work building the Lion Habitat at the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino, as well as being the managing contractor for the Lion statue at the corner of Tropicana and Las Vegas Boulevard, possibly the most photographed corner in Las Vegas. They also built the highly praised Star Lane Mall and Grand Adventures Theme Park at the MGM, and the Primm Valley Resort & Casino in Primm, Nev.

Restaurants built include: Emeril LaGasse's Delmonico Steakhouse, Piero Selvaggio's Valentino Restaurant, as well as Stephen Pyle's Star Canyon Restaurant and Eberhardt Mueller's French restaurant Lutece, all at the Venetian; the Motown Cafe at the New York, New York Hotel & Casino; Emeril's New Orleans Fish House, the Brown Derby, Gatsby's, Ricardo's restaurant, all at the MGM; and Smith & Wollensky, the Dragon Court, Nathans, Sir Reginald's Steakhouse, Studio Cafe and G.P.'s Steakhouse.
