Project Summary

While in the mist of an expansion & renovation project, the general contractor went bankrupt; FasTrack was called upon to perform a construction status analysis to prepare litigation and outline a completion scenario. The property, which included 210 new rooms, 2 restaurants, 3 bars and an 8,000 sqft casino was subsequently completed by the Owner.

Owner – contractor


FasTrack Scope of Work
