Casino Building
Sierra Foothills, California
 
OVERVIEW

The project began with the discovery of mold in several exterior walls.  Soon after, one-third of the casino was closed due to concerns for long-span laterally- unbraced ceiling support beams. We joined the team and provided a second opinion that the ceiling beams were potentially hazardous and their design was deficient.  We were subsequently hired to lead the continuing structural investigation that discovered numerous construction and design deficiencies. Over the next 3 years, we provided design services to correct these structural deficiencies along with litigation support services. Some programmatic upgrades were also incorporated to improve casino operations.
