Sundt | Yates Construction, a joint venture, recently completed a hotel expansion at the Harrah’s Ak-Chin Casino Resort near Maricopa, Ariz.  

The design-build project added a new 12-story, 388,000-square-foot, 230-room hotel tower, and a 730-space parking structure. This expansion was designed to complement the existing resort-style guest suites by integrating contemporary design, enhancing connectivity to the casino.

“This has been an excellent project for our team,” said Robert Kobierowski, Project Manager.  “We utilized laser scanning (a tool that can enable a high level of coordination in construction) on this project, which gave us the most precise information possible while driving collaboration among all of those involved.”

Additional resort renovations included a casino update, a steakhouse, enhancements to public spaces, an ultra-modern wine bar with an open-concept lobby and lounge, an associated roadway realignment adjacent to the site, and an expansion of the central plant.

The Sundt | Yates team also added a pedestrian bridge spanning Ak-Chin Parkway that unites the second floor of the casino with the Ultra Star Family Entertainment Center across the street, and features a large promenade leading to the parking garage, with displays of contemporary Native American art. This seamless entertainment complex is now the largest Indian gaming venue in Arizona.
