The Highest Level

Bergman Walls & Associates

Since 1994, the mission of Bergman Walls & Associates Ltd. has been to provide each client the highest level of individualized service, regardless of project type or size. BWA specializes in entertainment architecture, including resorts, hotels, casinos, conference facilities, restaurants, nightclubs and performance venues.

The firm also has extensive experience in mixed-use and high-rise residential projects. Services include architecture, planning, interior design, theming and three-dimensional visualization.

BWA offices, located in Las Vegas and Ho Chi Minh City, are staffed by a group of highly experienced and diverse professionals in an atmosphere of innovation and creativity. Every project is headed by a partner-in-charge who commits personal attention to the project from conception through client move-in.

After serving as in-house architect for Steve Wynn working on the Mirage and Treasure Island, BWA’s founder, Joel Bergman, created iconic projects that define their genre, including the Paris Casino Resort, the Augustus, Octavius and Palace Towers at Caesars Palace, Trump International Hotel & Tower and the Signature at MGM Grand. A new generation of leadership including Joel’s sons, Leonard and George, has produced important projects across the industry. BWA currently is working on the Golden Nugget in Lake Charles and the new hotel tower for the Hard Rock Casino in Biloxi.

Entertainment venues include the LAX and PURE nightclubs, Casa Fuente and Rhumbar. Restaurants include Payard Patisserie & Bistro, Guy Savoy, the Capital Grille and the Social House at City Center.

BWA is proud to have a history of success working with Native American clients on projects including Mystic Lake Casino Hotel and Little Six Casino for the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community, Casino Snoqualmie for the Snoqualmie Indian Tribe, Salishan-Mohegan Casino for the Mohegan and Cowlitz Indian Tribes and Barona Valley Ranch Resort for the Barona Band of Mission Indians.

The company provides opportunities to Native American-owned firms and individuals who complement and strengthen the team.

International projects include work in Vietnam, Greece, Australia and Ghana, West Africa, as well as conceptual studies in the Philippines, Japan, Romania and Peru.

BWA believes that sustainability is fundamental to all design.  The company is a member of the United States Green Building Council, has extensive experience with LEED certification and is actively increasing the number of LEED-accredited professionals within the firm. 

BWA’s goal is simple: that their projects are remembered for their distinctive architecture, excellent guest experience, operational efficiency and financial success.
