Stearns was involved in both the original construction of Silver Reef Casino, as well as this 100,000 sq. ft. addition.
Stearns was brought on board early by Aecon Buildings, Inc., to assist MBA Architecture and Culp & Tanner with design development and to procure and detail the structural steel, steel joists and girders, metal roof deck, and miscellaneous steel. Stearns was a leader in the design process and provided solution strategies that were instrumental in developing a cost-effective structural design. This allowed the project to move forward in order to meet the owner’s schedule expectations.
R.F. Stearns' project manager, explained, “We worked in close collaboration with Aecon Buildings and the construction team to provide the structural steel frame elements as well as the exterior porte-cochere and promenade accents. Our collective team efforts resulted in meeting the owner’s design and scheduling needs for fast occupancy for the patrons of the casino.”
Stearns' ability to provide complete integrated services and accelerated scheduling capabilities helped to reduce both budgetary risk and shortened the construction schedule.
