Project Details

IP Casino Resort

Project Size:
300,000 sf

Hurricane Katrina decimated the Gulf Coast and the IP Casino Resort was no exception with extensive wind and storm surge damage. Only days after the storm had blown through, reconstruction commenced on this property. Phase I included demolition of storm debris and portions of the building damaged beyond repair. Reconstruction was based on a new modern design. Work included re­constructing the casino, pavilion, Player’s Club, Registra­tion, VIP Registration, retail shops, buffet, valet, baggage and back of house operation offices. Phase I completed on December 22, 2005, less than four months subse­quent to Katrina’s devastation. Phase II kicked-off im­mediately after and included a spa, pool bar, steakhouse restaurant, a fine dining restaurant, a sports bar, casual restaurant, coffee house, a state of the art ultra-lounge named Chill. All 48-suites on the top three floors of the hotel tower were also renovated. This project was awarded a Mississippi Associated Build­ers and Contractors Merit Award for Commercial General Construction over $15 million.
