Lean, Innovative, and Unique Project Solutions
Cianbro used an innovative approach to improve the project schedule. The strategy used prefabricated and pre-assembled components that were built off-site and then trucked in to be snapped into the expanding structure. Another unconventional aspect of the job was that construction was taking place next door to an operating casino that never closed. Cianbro’s experience with casino construction, including the construction of this same casino five years prior, provided us with the intimate knowledge of its daily operations. Therefore, Cianbro was able to develop a site logistics plan, minimizing the impact on parking and the entrance into the building, that prevented Churchill Downs from losing revenue while maximizing our construction site.
