YESCO is a proud partner of the Las Vegas Raiders and Allegiant Stadium. Fans visiting the stadium this Friday, Dec. 3, to watch the University of Utah play Oregon for the PAC 12 Football Championship will see nearly 4,000 signs YESCO fabricated for the venue, including all stadium naming signage, pylon sign and interior and exterior directional signs.

Encompassing approximately 50,000-man hours of work, YESCO fabricated and installed the exterior signage including the two rooftop signs spanning an impressive 564 feet each for a combined total of 115,056 square feet and comprising nearly two miles of outline lighting. With the exception of the interior scoring system provided by other vendors, YESCO built many other signs, such as the stadium’s freestanding pylon sign, measures 124 feet in height and 44 feet in width, with the electronics portion measuring 80-by-36 feet. With the exception of the pylon sign, all signs fabricated by YESCO were designed by Infinite Scale of Salt Lake City.

To accentuate the dramatic architecture of the stadium, YESCO installed white light ribbons comprising one-and-a-half total miles of light band. Massive individual illuminated letters reading “Allegiant Stadium” on the interior and exterior of the facility range from 20 to 31 feet in height. At Raiders Headquarters, the Intermountain Healthcare Performance Center, YESCO also installed all building and directional signs, including the pinnacle, outdoor Raiders’ shield sign measuring 27 by 25 feet.

YESCO enjoyed collaborating with Infinite Scale, the designer of record, as well as the general contractors on the project, Mortenson Construction and McCarthy Construction.

Neon Still Stokes Nostalgia in Las Vegas

Neon still stokes nostalgia in Las Vegas and beyond despite a dimming future

When Eric Elizondo repairs the Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign on the Strip, he doesn’t just keep the city’s most beloved icon standing.

He’s putting his hands on family history.

Elizondo is a third-generation “neon bender,” following in the steps of his late father who was one of the artisans credited with building and installing the sign in the late 1950s.

The elder’s specialty was shaping the glass tubes filled with neon gas and electrified to create the evocative glow that bathed the emerging desert oasis. It continues to live strong now despite the dwindling number of neon craftsmen.

Now 65 years old and looking at retirement in about a year, Elizondo is one of only three benders left at Yesco’s Vegas shop and among only 10 in the company nationwide — out of almost 1,000 Yesco employees. A few years ago, Yesco had about 30 benders, he said.

“When LED came around we slowed down a little bit but we’re still going,” he said. “We’re still going good.”

Sierra at Tahoe Survives Caldor Fire

Drivers passing by Sierra at Tahoe were honking to the YESCO team members installing a new monument sign to signal they were glad to see activity at the ski area which was almost consumed by the Caldor Fire last September. The ski season can't be far away and the resort is ready to welcome guests.

Quoting from the resort's Instagram, "The work continues daily – in the rain, through the snow but the glimpse of the “new” to come has us daydreaming of future turns down Lower Main, stomping tricks in The Playgrounds + discovering new lines on a powder day. It will be different. How different is still unknown.

We do know that the trails + area accessed by West Bowl Express will be inaccessible this season, as we restore that section of the mountain for seasons to come. We are dedicated to keeping you informed and at the forefront of all that we do, which is why we have added a FAQ section to our Caldor Fire Updates page (link in bio). We will keep sharing answers as we learn them to all of your pressing questions and cannot wait to welcome you back to the place."
