Initially we were deeply involved in the negotiations for adequate space within the existing hotel and for control of access to the casino spaces and to those shared by the casino and the hotel. These included the underground parking, basement storage and back-up electrical generator.

We then undertook a detailed design which was presented and approved by the various levels of government. With the exterior the challenge was to design an entrance which fit with the existing hotel yet provided a distinct entrance for the casino. This was done by cutting into an existing rock wall on the hotel exterior.
