Atlantic Prefab Inc., provider of prefabricated building components & systems announces they have been selected to lead the pre-fabrication of pre-finished exterior wall panels along with interior load bearing panels and metal roof trusses for the new Churchill Downs, Oxford Casino hotel expansion project. The $25-Million-dollar expansion will feature more than 100 guest rooms, additional dining options, as well as an expansion of the gaming floor and meeting spaces, according to a Portland Press Herald interview. The planned expansion will great 60 new full-time positions, along with an estimated 1000 temporary construction jobs.
“Atlantic Prefab is excited to be working with the Cianbro Construction Team. This is such an important project for us as we are using four of our superior product lines on this one project. We have our pre-finished EIFS wall panels wrapping the podium and structural pre-finished exterior panels carrying precast planks for three story. Our “frame only” panels are being utilized for the interior bearing walls and we top everything off with our metal roof trusses spaced at 48” on-center. To add to the value of our system, the glazing contractor will be installing their windows in the panels before they leave our plant….this translates to superior quality and a faster path to dry-in. said Mark Beroney, General Manager at Atlantic Prefab.
Construction of the hotel and casino expansion is expected to be completed by the summer of 2017.
