Dynamic light fixtures, video screens, dining options including a real food truck…these are just some of the upgrades the Potawatomi Casino | Hotel (PCH) are making to attract and retain visitors. The new upgrades to PCH include new finishes, additional gaming machines and tables and new amenity spaces. There is a new gift shop, coffee shop, VIP lounge – Club 1833, and additional bars. The new food venues includes a Rock N’ Brews – rock n’ roll themed restaurant and bar, Street Eatz – a food court complete with a food truck, and Cream City Coffee Co. These new spaces are on the second level of the casino and represent the conclusion of the first phase of the renovations. Still to come is the Potawatomi Sportsbook, which is slated to be open in 2024.
Through a joint venture with Gilbane, Greenfire Management Services provided construction management throughout the renovation. We coordinated the subcontractors, participated in OAC meetings and provided on-site solutions when challenges arose. Through open communication and collaboration, we successfully completed this complicated interior renovation while the casino and hotel were operational. One example of how we kept the disturbance low was to deliver all of the materials and supplies through a side area as to not disrupt the freight elevators that the staff uses. We also installed temporary walls to keep the dust and noise mitigated and away from the guest areas. Careful staging, phasing and planning all contributed to a minimally disruptive construction period.
