Gephart Awarded Southland Casino Racing Project
West Memphis, AR
Gephart Electric was recently awarded the Southland Casino Racing project in West Memphis, AR. This project is an expansion to the existing casino and dog track and includes a large state-of-the-art gaming floor addition, an expanded parking lot and site improvements, a new parking garage, multiple restaurant venues, and a 22-story hotel tower with 300 guestrooms featuring a 200 ft. high façade light show visible from downtown Memphis across the Mississippi River. We are currently engaged in early-participation design-assist preconstruction activities and site preparation.
This award builds upon our 25-year relationship with Construction Manager Roy Anderson Corp. (a Tutor Perini Company), and our 20-year relationship with SOSH Architects. This team successfully completed the Scarlet Pearl Casino Resort project in D’Iberville, MS in 2015. We are excited to build again with the same core group, which also includes M/E Engineers. This project also has us working alongside Delaware North Companies (DNC) who is one of the largest hospitality developers in the United States; and also adds to our long history of major projects in the Gaming and Hospitality market.
