The del Lago Resort & Casino project included design and engineering for a 195,000 square foot casino, 200 room hotel with multi-purpose meeting/ballroom, pool and spa as well as a number of supporting restaurants and bars totaling an additional 256,000 square feet, on an 85 acre parcel in Seneca County. Design plans included the 1000 space parking garage and 2300 surface spaces. The scope of the project was almost overshadowed by the scope of the challenges surrounding it. BME Associates served as the lead consultant for the site plan design and municipal approval process contributing significantly to the project’s on-time completion within the strict NYS imposed timeline. This project presented many varied challenges that BME worked with the client, municipalities, and agencies to overcome.
