Hard Rock Casino Resort Renovation and Parking Garage

Tampa, Florida


Project Details

Seminole Tribe of Florida

Project Size:
455,000 SF

GARAGE: A five-story precast garage with 717-spaces. Supported by stone columns to stabilize the existing soil conditions and concrete foundations, the garage includes a new lobby with four elevators and is clad in stone, EIFS and metal panels. A new retention pond will be added and changes to the adjacent surface parking will accommodate the new entrance. The existing retention pond was filled and site utilities and drainage were modified to accommodate the new construction.
PORTE COCHERE: The existing Porte Cochere and fountain were demolished making way for a new Porte Cochere and Sky Bridge connected to the north end of the existing casino. The new structure was built on auger cast piles and concrete foundations. A structural steel frame supports a decorative ceiling above the drop off area and a second floor for future use as a gaming area. The project included three new elevators, two escalators and one moving walk. The exterior consists of glass curtain wall, EIFS and stone cladding.
POKER ROOM: Consists of restrooms, cash cage, office/storage space, food and beverage prep areas and front-of-house seating. The new poker room is situated on a ‘pedestal’ style access floor system, providing the end-user flexibility for future modifications. Above ceiling infrastructure provisions
allow for suspended ceiling finishes and above ceiling mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and sprinkler systems.
CENTRAL PLANT: Included new chillers, cooling towers and switch gear to service all the new portions of Phase I.
