Twin River (BLB Investors)

Expansion and Renovation

Project Overview

Every inch of this 60-year old greyhound track facility was upgraded or completely redesigned to create a world class entertainment and gaming destination. Arden’s scope impacted all trades which were working concurrently to meet the project’s demanding timetable. The team installed the new 40,000-square-foot Central Utility Building housing a new boiler and chiller plant to service the 250,000-square-foot facility, and also remodeled and installed all duct work for the 40,000-square-foot existing gaming area and the 150,000-square-foot new gaming addition.
