Mr. Junior Patel

Upon the expansion of gaming activities at Mardi Gras Casino & Resort, Tri State Hotels contracted with Randolph Engineering to provide design services for a new hotel project to serve the expected increase in tourists coming into West Virginia for these gaming activities.

The project involved the study design and preparation of contract documents for the site design including preliminary and final grading, parking layout, storm water management, lighting, pavement design, utility design and access road design as well as securing all necessary permits. The project was undertaken using the Design-Build method of delivery.

The site chosen by the developer had significant challenges with the most troublesome being the terrain as it related to the property boundaries. Due to very restrictive property line and right-of-way limitations we chose and designed a Redi-Rock retaining wall system for two retaining wall structures that were required to prevent impacts to surrounding properties.

Surveying services included horizontal and vertical control, topographic mapping for design purposes and construction stakeout.

Key Personnel:

  • Project Manager – Donald R. Hayes, P.L.S.
