Project Description

The Gold Country Casino Hotel and Expansion project for the Tyme Maidu Tribe in Oroville, California consists of a seven story, 248,000 sf building including a 42,000 SF casino floor with some 900 gaming machines, 87 first class hotel room accommodations spread over three and a half floors, three restaurants and kitchen facilities, a coffee bar, piano lounge, casino bar with stage, a bakery, laundry and support facilities, and complete hotel and casino administration offices including space for State Gaming Commissioners. A separate central plant with chillers, cooling towers, boilers, pumps and chemical systems was also part of the project and housed the 2000kW standby generator furnished and installed by Schetter Electric, Inc. As a prime contractor working directly for the Tribe under a GMP contract, design development and value engineering were areas of SEI responsibility in addition to the construction and installation of the power, lighting, fire alarm, smoke control and lightning protection systems. All infrastructure rough-in for the telecommunications, data, surveillance, access, and security systems was installed by Schetter Electric in the steel framed building. Architectural highlights include the exterior and interior lighting packages, enormous HVAC ductwork systems for the casino floor, and the unique shape of the building nestled into the site between existing structures. With an aggressive construction schedule requiring significant overtime, Schetter was able to pre-plan much of the work and man the out of town job successfully to achieve timely completion within the tight budget
