Thunder Valley Casino
The Thunder Valley Casino project is an expansion to an existing structure—portions of which were demolished, exposing the existing structure, and then reconfigured in order to connect the addition. Economic challenges caused the project to be cancelled midstream, redesigned and then awarded to a new general contractor. Thanks to their ingenuity, SME Steel was able to maintain the original schedule despite the necessary reconfiguring of the pre-fabricated steel on site due to the design changes as well as fabricating additional steel; thus, saving the owner time and money. The seventeen-level tower is crowned with an impressive helipad comprised of large cantilevered tapered steel beams supporting an eyebrow design.
