According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Americans spend, on average, 90 percent of their time indoors. To ensure a healthier environment and maximize the well-being of CityCenter residents and visitors, a stringent indoor air quality plan was implemented during construction. Similar measures are put into practice every day to maintain the enhanced air quality and overall comfort of CityCenter.
- During construction, developers selected paints, sealants, adhesives, carpet and composite wood products that do not contain toxic substances that can later be released into the air. Similar non-toxic products are used for touch-ups and renovations.
- CityCenter construction workers were limited to designated smoking areas, eliminating the potential for wallpaper and carpet to absorb tobacco smoke and protecting the air quality in guest rooms.
- All hotel rooms and residences were carefully sealed to prevent migration of tobacco smoke between units.
- The airflow in ARIA's casino streams from the floor to the ceiling, resulting in an odor-free, more comfortable environment. Traditional casino airflow is from the ceiling downward, pushing the air around guests.
- Only products meeting strict health and environmental standards are used for cleaning CityCenter properties.
A non-smoking pathway in the ARIA casino allows guests to walk from the registration lobby to the elevator bank with no exposure to tobacco smoke. This pathway is clearly marked, and non-smoking slot machines and gaming tables on each side of the pathway create a 20-foot buffer.
