IICRC Purchases Las Vegas Property to Serve as New Global Resource Center

Located between the Las Vegas strip and McCarran International Airport, the IICRC’s new Global Resource Center will be used to host meetings, conferences, video production, lab space, storage and a library or museum to document the history of the industry.

“The acquisition of this multi-use property offers several exciting opportunities,” said IICRC chairman Darrell Paulson. “This potentially includes administrative services, supplies and inventory, training and meeting space and many other alternatives that will be provided to the Board and further refined and implemented in years to come.”

The 20,000 square foot property will have approximately 2,500 square feet for warehouse space and 17,500 square feet to be used as office space. The building, which sits on 1.62 acres, also offers 35 covered parking spaces and a bus stop which is conveniently located just outside the front door making it easily accessible to anyone traveling from the airport or the Strip. As a former bank, the property also hosts a large walk-in vault that could be used for secure document storage, along with a commercial kitchen.

“This property checked all the boxes for us,” said IICRC international vice president Tony Wheelwright. “Communication is a mission of our organization, and this facility will give us the space and resources for our constituents to gather and build upon the IICRC’s reputation as the leading authority and source of professional knowledge in the industry.”

Following the board of directors’ determinations on use, extensive renovations will immediately begin to prepare the building for its official opening in January 2014.

“We want this building to become a destination for people around the world who are looking to expand their knowledge of our industry,” added Paulson. “We look forward to seeing what exciting things develop over the next few months and welcoming the industry to our grand opening next January.”
