Vancouver’s newest multimillion-dollar project – Parq Vancouver Resort & Casino – opens today at 11 pm. Strategically located adjacent to BC Place Stadium and Rogers Area – Vancouver’s premier sports and event venues – the casino is soon to become the largest destination resort in Vancouver.
Phoenix Truck & Crane is elated to have been a part of the construction of such a beautiful building, which becomes a new landmark for Vancouver and interconnects with the street grid around the stadium.
Phoenix was hired many times over the past few years, for a variety of different projects; truly highlighting the varied scope of work we offer our customers. We transported and hoisted loads of materials, including a 1.3 million dollar art piece, placed at the front of the building. The focal point of the casino is the glass – stories of red tinted windows manufactured in the U.S. and installed by our operator who specializes in glass installation. The hours he spent onsite working with the fragile lifts, is evident when you see the building.
As we reflect on this project, and the many contractors we worked for, we are thankful for the continued investment in the lower mainland, providing work and opportunities like this.
Good luck to Parq Vancouver, Paragon and all partners involved in this new venture.
