The Feather Falls Casino project constructed a three-story Hotel Building, a pedestrian walkway to the existing second-story of Feather Falls Casino, and 97 new parking spaces for staff and guests.
This was the second major project NMR completed for Feather Falls Casino and Mooretown Rancheria the first being a 40,500 sq. ft. Casino Expansion. For this project, Feather Falls Casino sought to create a destination hotel with easy access to the existing gaming facilities. The hotel design produced nine different standard room and residential suite configurations, and incorporated the finest amenities including a heated indoor/outdoor pool – separated by a retractable glass door – an outdoor pool area, a hot-tub, a walk-in sauna, a laundry facility, an exercise room, a porte cochere drop-off as well as a two-story lobby with a mezzanine seating area and a stone wrapped fireplace. NMR also designed the covered pedestrian walkway with an escalator to provide direct access to gaming, events, and restaurants on the second floor of the existing casino.
These amenities and the variation in room size supplied Feather Falls Casino with the flexibility needed to accommodate the wide range of guests and performers that frequent the Casino. The project was completed via a fast-track, three-phase project delivery method with a negotiated contract establishing a Guaranteed Maximum Price (G.M.P.) between the Casino and the General Contractor. In addition to leading a project team consisting of civil, landscape, structural and interior design consultants, NMR also worked closely with the General Contractor’s Design-build Mechanical, Plumbing and Electrical Sub-contractors. Finally, NMR coordinated with the Casino’s on-site vendors for low voltage/audio-visual installation, access control, and building security during the design and construction process.
