Snoqualmie Casino | Falls Buffet

Snoqualmie, Washington

Project Objectives

I-5 worked with Snoqualmie Casino to design and renovate their Buffet. The new design appealed to their more sophisticated eastside demographic and reflected the traditions of the Snoqualmie people, while also providing the casino and surrounding North Bend area with a high-quality dining destination.

Design & Planning

Created to reflect the Coast Salish heritage of the tribe, this buffet was upgraded to a destination dining environment within the casino. All customer-facing areas of the buffet were addressed, including new ceiling, floor, and custom wall treatments.

Drawing inspiration from the beauty and mystique of Snoqualmie Falls the new design celebrates the tribes origin as the people of the moon, and it’s connection with the falls, the river, and the forest.

Build & Install

All of the new décor and finishes were built off site to create a highly efficient installation, with the entire project completed in only 12 days on site.

A main attraction of the new dining venue is the integration of large-screen displays which show drone footage of breathtaking Snoqualmie Falls as guests enter the space.

“Considering the logistic complexity and large scope of this project, the total buffet remodel was one of the easiest projects I have had the pleasure of supporting in a long time” – Harold Ellebracht, Facilities Director

“Working with I-5 design was very easy. From the design to the project planning, the project stayed within budget and never went over. As a CFO, change orders are typical on construction projects. Your team never came back with a change order, while delivering an outstanding project. Your team also did an awesome job minimizing impact to customers while the project was happening; many people didn’t even know the remodel was happening until it was done” – Robert Crowe, CFO
