The PENTA Building Group boosts Nevada work force

One of the resort corridor’s biggest general contractors is boosting its Las Vegas staff.

The PENTA Building Group, a locally based company with more than 160 workers in four states, has added 16 people to its Nevada work force of 113.

New hires include project managers, superintendents, project engineers and operations employees including a payroll administrator. Some of the new employees were already locally based, while others have relocated from states including Florida, New York and California.

PENTA also added five employees to its California operation in Los Angeles. PENTA has offices in Arizona and Oklahoma as well.

The 15-year-old company has built projects in sectors such as health care, education, public works and retail, but much of its recent, local work is concentrated on and around the resort corridor. Projects it has completed include the Sahara’s transformation into SLS Las Vegas and the Grand Bazaar Shops at Bally’s.

PENTA has also handled room remodels for Bellagio, Paris Las Vegas, the Palms and Monte Carlo.
