March 2007 – Dec 2008
Arctic Engineering was selected to provide all plumbing work for the nautical inspired design of the tallest building built in Indiana in 2009; Blue Chip Casino & Hotel located in Michigan City. Our Plumbing Division installed all under-ground and above-ground sanitary and storm water piping for this new 22-story facility. The potable water distribution piping for the complete facility was also completed by our plumbers. Coordination with other trades on this project was paramount to allow for a conflict free installation. To ensure this, Arctic’s Field Superintendent spent 3 months prior to the start of the project in pre-planning meetings.
This included working closely with CLEO, the interior design team from Las Vegas hired by the owner to create several mock-up suites offsite. This stage of the project ensured the finished product had the specific look and feel the owner wanted. Another step Arctic took to accommodate the precise, fast paced construction schedule was to prefabricate all sanitary piping per floor in our shop and deliver to the site complete. This allowed for ease of on-site installation and offered flexibility around the other trades involved. It also ensured Arctic was 2-floors ahead of schedule during the entire project.
