The Venetian Macao is the largest single-structure hotel building in Asia. The hotel and casino resort is owned by the Las Vegas Sands Corporation. The 980,000 square meter (10,500,000 square foot) Venetian Macao is modelled on its sister casino resort and is the seventh largest building in the world.
As Facadexs we are known for creating and building facade access solutions for any type of project or building. We have built and installed various customized Building Maintenance Units for the Asian market.
For the world’s largest Casino, the Venetian in Macao we build a number of traversing roof cars on a rail track on top of the hotel. The Hotel also has a huge dome of 25 meters (82 feet). We also created and provided 2 different gantry solutions. One rotating gantry which makes it possible to clean the dome and one traversing gantry.
The first addition to the building where the 3 traversing roof cars in 2007. In 2011, the gantries were added to our facade access solutions for the Venetian Macao.

The Venetian Macao is the world’s largest casino, occupying the equivalent of 56 football fields. With 3,000 suites and US$2.4 billion in construction costs, the 39-storey building was styled on the famous Italian city of Venice, complete with its own indoor canals and gondolas.
Since opening on August 28, 2007, the Macau mega-resort welcomes 75,000 visitors a day, playing the biggest part in transforming Macau into the most successful gambling city in the world, generating HK$217 billion in casino revenue last year – nearly five times the intake of the Vegas Strip.
