The casino industry has evolved from simple gambling facilities to become entertainment destinations. COST is proud to be an integral part of the ever-expanding casino industry. The theme and specialty finishes developed by staffed artisans are the focal point of many of the most recognized casinos in the U.S. Interior and exterior specialty features located in highly visible areas such as porte cocheres, lobbies, restaurants, lounges, gift shops, and the gaming floors, differentiate one gaming facility from another in this competitive industry. Creating this differentiation involves a truly creative and collaborative team. COST works with casino architects, interior designers, general contractors, and owners to develop ideas into working drawings and then physical features.
The diverse mediums COST personnel work within include theme carpentry, GFRC, FRP, GFRG, acrylics, epoxies, decorative metals, and glass. The various materials, fabrication techniques, and expertise in numerous construction disciplines provide clients with a single source solution for theme and specialty construction projects.
COST has not only worked on prestigious Las Vegas projects such as Caesar’s Palace, The Wynn, and many more, but our expertise also covers Native American gaming. From 1993 to the present, our firm has constructed over 50 tribal projects from Southern California to Northern WA, Florida to Connecticut. As an active member of NIGA, WIGA, AICC of WI, COST realizes that many tribal properties are more than just a casino. If requested, our theme designers work closely with architects to integrate unique aspects of tribal heritage within their design. The finished result of any COST project is due to a close collaboration between owners, developers, design, and construction teams.
Typical theme construction scopes on casino projects involves shop drawings, renderings, and modeling that all act as checks and balances to ensure the owner’s ideas and vision are reflected in the completed project.
