Design Build Casino & Resort in Arizona

Just a decade after opening the Wild Horse Pass Casino in Arizona’s Valley of the Sun, The Gila River Indian Community (GRIC) constructed of a mixed-use replacement that has helped alleviate a number of community and facility issues facing the two tribes that call the GRIC home. In addition to more than doubling the size of the current casino, the new development also offers a ten-story hotel fulfilling every conference, meeting and special-event need imaginable. Rounding out the resort is a 2,300-seat entertainment venue, top-notch spa and health club, as well as a variety of retail and restaurant options that are aimed at increasing tourism.

Bergelectric developed a variety of value engineering alternatives totaling over one million dollars in savings. The GRIC selected options such as a feeder-distribution utilizing MC cable and aluminum conductors. Berg’s value-engineering of the lighting design prepared by WH Pacific revealed several budget-saving options such as recommending more cost-effective fixture types and the possibility of using fewer quantities to achieve illumination. Through its early involvement in the design phase Berg was able to meet the lighting designer’s intent while conserving money on both fixture and installation costs.
