Red Wind Casino

Stearns' innovative thinking and professional teams of engineers, designers, and project managers helped develop and implement a cost-effective structural design and an efficient, uninterrupted construction schedule, bringing this casino to completion on time and within budget.

Throughout the process, the design team worked closely with the Tribe to ensure the integration of their history into the new facility. Elements such as salmon, water, wood, the camas flower and tribal symbolism kept the casino tied to the tribal landscape and culture.
