Las Vegas-based casino gaming manufacturer is recognized for its commitment to sustainable building practices

LAS VEGAS, April 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Konami Gaming, Inc., a global leader in casino gaming and systems, was awarded the 2016 NAIOP Southern Nevada Spotlight Award for Sustainable/Green Building for the recently-completed expansion of itsLas Vegas headquarters.

“Our new headquarters has been designed and delivered with environmentally-friendly and energy saving considerations in every aspect,” said Tom Jingoli, chief administration officer and senior vice president at Konami Gaming, Inc. “Konami has always been very conscious of the environment and so it was a natural fit for us to expand our facility with a goal of obtaining LEED certification. We felt this was an important investment to demonstrate our commitment to being good corporate citizens.”
