Environmentally Friendly Work at the Seminole Coconut Creek Casino

Two 150-ton crawler cranes tower over a massive concrete structure just steps from the Seminole Coconut Creek Casino on NW 40th Street in Coconut Creek. Sims Crane operators are working around the clock for Solar Erectors, a contractor on the project.  As the sun goes down, the two Sims cranes stand high in the night sky lifting concrete panels for a seven-level parking garage. It’s part of a $100 million casino expansion.

 According to City Biz Real Estate, at completion, the parking garage is expected to be 1.25 million square feet and accommodate approximately 2,400 vehicles. The LEED goal for the garage is Silver Certification. The project is currently a LEED-BD+C Version 2009 Registered Project. LEED stands for Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design. LEED is an internationally recognized green building certification system developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) in March 2000. LEED provides a framework for identifying and implementing practical and measureable green building design, construction, operations and maintenance solutions. The goal is to improve performance in areas such as energy savings, water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction and other metrics that measure the impact to the environment. 

 Moss/Anderson, a joint venture, was awarded the multi-million dollar expansion contract. The expansion will include the addition of more than 45,000 square feet to the gaming floor of the casino and the renovation of 40,000 square feet of the existing casino area. This means upgrades to the interior finishes. The cage operations will be reconfigured, while the gaming positions are expected to be upgraded. Construction began in March. The entire project is tentatively scheduled to be nearing its end by December 2011.
