Del Lago Resort & Casino Officially Marks Another Milestone with Construction of Hotel and Spa
Posted on July 14th, 2016
TYRE, N.Y. May 5, 2016 – The pace of construction and the number of skilled union workers at del Lago Resort & Casino continues to grow as construction on the hotel and spa reaches the above ground stage. Concrete has been poured for the foundations of the hotel and spa, marking yet another milestone for del Lago Resort & Casino. The casino is set to open in February 2017, while the 205-room hotel and 10,000-square-foot spa will open in July 2017.
Since the casino topping-out ceremony last month – in addition to the completion of the hotel and spa foundations – more than 200 skilled New York tradesmen have finished installing a weather-tight roof and have been actively working on the interior framing of the casino structure and 40,000-square-foot entertainment venue. It is estimated that there will be approximately 700 union workers onsite during the casino construction’s peak.
“We are thrilled at the pace of construction for both the casino and hotel and spa, keeping the project on or ahead of schedule,” said Jeff Babinski, del Lago Resort & Casino executive vice president and general manager. “We are incredibly proud of the exceptional upstate union tradespeople working hard to bring New York’s best resort and casino to the Finger Lakes region.”
“On an average day, there are 200 trades people working on the construction of del Lago Resort & Casino, just one-third of the workers who will be on site in the near future. These hardworking men and women are bringing in a half million dollars in wages and benefits weekly, which is incredible for our local economy,” said Michael Davis, president of the Finger Lakes Building & Construction Trades Council, AFL-CIO, which represents 19 local unions with more than 6,000 members.
The del Lago Resort & Casino hotel will feature a 3,000-square-foot banquet facility suitable for conventions, conference and receptions. The luxury spa will feature 17 treatment rooms, a salon and retail outlet.
