Aecon gets U.S. contract
Aecon Group Inc. announced last week that its Seattle, Washington-based buildings division has secured a construction management contract for a $15.3-million project for the Silver Reef Hotel and Casino in Ferndale Washington.
Work is expected to begin this spring on the 105-room, six-storey hotel along with expansion of the existing casino facility originally built by Aecon in 2002.
In total, Aecon will create approximately 80,000 square feet of new space for the existing casino and new hotel designed by architects Morris and Brown.
Anticipated features of the hotel and casino include a spa and an Asian restaurant.
The project is expected to be completed by summer 2006.
“This award reinforces Aecon’s strength in the entertainment and casino sector and underscores our commitment to building in the western U.S.” said John Beck, chairman and CEO of Aecon. “We are very happy that the Lummi Commercial Company has chosen Aecon once again for work on the Silver Reef.”
Aecon Group Inc. is Canada’s largest publicly traded construction and infrastructure development company.
