Good technology is not a gamble: centralized building automation system for three casinos
Customer Reference | USA
Three casinos in three different cities in the U.S. are controlled via a centralized building automation system. The solution from Climatec bundles and simplifies the management of critical components.
The Tohono O’odham Nation is a group descended from a Native American tribe. Like their ancestors, they live in the Sonoran Desert in Arizona, USA. They own the company Desert Diamond Casinos and Entertainment, which operates two casinos in the cities of Tucson and Sahuarita. Construction began on a third casino in Glendale, near the state capital of Phoenix, at the end of 2017.
The Desert Diamond West Valley Casino will open its doors at the end of 2019, providing around 7,000 square meters of casino space and room for five restaurants. The building will later be expanded to include a hotel complex. Climatec, a subsidiary of Bosch, is a key part of the project’s construction team. In collaboration with the team’s HVAC contractor, Bel-Aire Mechanical, Climatec has implemented various building control systems for the new casino.
For example, the experts from Climatec implemented an automation solution that will be capable of centrally monitoring and controlling critical building systems for the casino in Glendale as well as the two casinos in Tucson and Sahuarita. The experts also helped with the concept development of a unique under-floor air distribution system for the casino. A model of this system was specially developed and tested in the Climatec offices.
“We helped bring this construction phase successfully to completion by applying our expertise and focusing on delivering the highest quality of service,” concludes Tim Williams, Construction Sales Manager for Climatec. The developer also benefited from the effective cooperation between Climatec and Bel-Aire Mechanical. The two companies have been partners in the sector for nearly 20 years.
