Golden State precaster Clark Pacific recently completed an eight-story, 3,300-space parking structure for the new Red Hawk Casino in Shingle Springs, Calif. Erected in just over 90 days and completed in 10 months, the 1.1 million-sq.-ft. project was coordinated by general contractor Rudolph & Sletten to facilitate cost-effective, rapid construction by the Clark Pacific design-build team and promote environmental stewardship.
We needed a parking solution flexible enough to meet a challenging construction schedule and work around simultaneous projects on the site, asserts Scott Holmes, chairman of the Shingle Springs Tribal Gaming Authority. Identified by Rudolph & Sletten as the best provider to meet the casino’s parking needs, he adds, Clark Pacific maintained good quality control and on-site safety throughout the swift construction process.
Rudolph & Sletten Project Executive Kevin Englund echoes that assessment: The new precast structure was erected quickly and smoothly, especially given the need for flexibility while working around other projects on site.
The parking garage’s precast components were fabricated over 14 weeks, and above-grade construction required 19 weeks to complete. With the participation of Cunningham Group Architecture, the structure was designed for future expansion as needed.
The proactive approach to the design/build process that Clark Pacific’s team brought to the table assured success, reports Rudolph & Sletten’s Englund. They were team players in working around challenges we faced preparing the pad for garage construction and erecting the structure adjacent to the casino being built simultaneously. The precast solution helped keep the whole project on schedule so we could make the client’s opening date.
