Location: Joliet, Illinois
Widler Architectural served as the design consultant of the renovation, which included a new VIP lounge called The Reserve, the addition of Ace’s Diner and the Blue Bar located on the gaming floor. New carpeting, easier entry to the casino and a reconfigured pavilion with higher ceilings and richer acoustics now add to the gaming experience. The installation of more than 26 plasma-screen televisions throughout the casino and pavilion areas allow for casino promotion broadcasting. Widler Architectural led the construction management team, coordinating millwork and site design. As the representative for the leading design firm, Widler Architectural implemented quality control for this fast-paced, high-stakes project.
