Photo of gaming floor plan by I-5 Design.After your casino designs have been finalized we assign a project team that initiates and executes the remodel design seamlessly. This ensures that the project runs as smoothly as possible while minimizing communication-related problems. The project team will be involved in the project from the very initial design phase and through to the installation and grand opening of your newly transformed facility.

Due to our unique concept to completion approach, all of our design, planning, production, and implementation teams are under one roof for collaboration throughout each phase of the casino renovation project. Our production team is very involved throughout the design phase to ensure each design element will correctly translate to the finished product; likewise, our design team is involved throughout the planning and implementation to ensure design integrity is carried through to the finished product. This team structure allows for a truly “Design Driven” project and ensures the best overall look, quality, and efficiency. Our project team will also assist in the design development andcoordination drawing phases to facilitate the architectural, mechanical, electrical, and kitchen drawings. The project team will be responsible for construction phase development and schedules.

Casino Renovation | Design Solutions

duck creek casino designThe first component of a casino renovation is the design and planning. Scheduling a site visit, we perform a 360-degree, 3D laser scan of the existing space to obtain photographic and digital point cloud data. With the use of this state-of the-art technology our casino designs show an precisely accurate clone of your building with measurements that can be easily transferred into 3D models. This information is then converted into a 3D model which our team uses to formulate the actual design for the space. The theming aspect of the design comes from direct input received from our client. Telling us how they envision their new property, our teams collaborate to create a design plan that will move their vision into reality.

With over 26 years of experience in designing and implementing casino renovations, there is no style that our innovative design team can’t create. Our projects styles range from contemporary and energetic, to tribal inspired and historical. With 3D technology, our client is able to visualize exactly how their space will look upon completion of the design and before moving towards the building, renovation and installation of the custom design elements. Each design we produce is intended to update the overall visual impression of the property, and transform the entire location into a local destination.

Casino Renovation Overview

Remodeling a casino facility can often times be quite extensive and require multiple companies and contractors to complete the project. Our “concept to completion” approach to a casino renovation project dramatically streamlines the entire process. Beginning with a detailed 3D scan of the facility provides us with exact site measurements and project information and allows us to create a casino design that utilizes existing structures and takes electrical, plumbing, HVAC etc… into consideration so there is no guessing when we install the elements. We create a completely new look based off of input received from the client and generate an exciting gaming atmosphere as well as intimate food and beverage areas, while respecting the cultural heritage of the tribe. With in-house technicians who fabricate all of the décor components presented in the design, we are able to provide custom elements and guarantee high quality and exact design intent. The collaboration between our design team, project manager, shop foremen, and on-site coordinator allows us to seamlessly take the project from our manufacture facility to the casino property, while executing the casino design plan with little or no downtime to casino operations.
