The results are in! On November 3, The San Diego Chapter of the Associated General Contractors of America, Inc. (AGC) presented the awards for the best-of-the best construction projects at their 2015 Build San Diego Awards banquet, naming Swinerton’s Valley View Casino & Hotel Extreme Makeover as one of the night’s big winners!
With over 300 guests in attendance, including a number of government officials, industry partners, and engineering and architectural firms, members from Swinerton’s San Diego team excitedly accepted the Unique Small Project-Private Work Award for the extreme casino and hotel makeover on behalf of the company.
In 2014 Valley View Casino & Hotel took the risk to temporary close their operations for 11 days to avoid disruptions to their guests, while Swinerton team members worked to give the major entertainment facility a facelift. In what normally would have taken 6–8 months to complete, the team worked tirelessly to complete the project in a mere 11 days. The all-new Valley View Casino & Hotel celebrated its grand opening and revealed the extreme casino makeover on January 17, 2014—drawing record-breaking crowds and guests who were all thrilled with the rejuvenation.
Congratulations to the entire team for your dedication and for going above-and-beyond to complete this project. Without your efforts, the project and award would not have been possible! Additional kudos to all award recipients!
