Sands Bethworks Casino
At a projected cost of $743 million, the historic Bethlehem Steel Plant is now being transformed into an elaborate resort consisting of gaming facilities, 300 luxury hotel rooms, 9 restaurants, 200,000 sq ft of upscale shopping outlets, and 46,000 sq ft of multi-purpose space. There are also plans for the inclusion of residential units, museums, art facilities, and theatres to occupy the vast 126 acres of the industrial plant site.
The Bethlehem Steel site is an American landmark, once employing tens of thousands, and producing the steel for such remarkable sites as the Golden Gate Bridge and numerous NYC skyscrapers. The new facilities preserve the legacy of the company by their unique industrial design - from exposed piping and brick walls to the reuse of factory parts.
Binsky & Snyder was called upon to provide the mechanical contracting needs for the ambitious schedule. Binsky worked diligently, coordinating with the other companies to ensure the successful opening of the casino in 2009, with only 9 months from start to finish.
Over 20,000 feet of piping, 17 air handlers, and 272 hot water and chilled water coils operate according to design to meet the HVAC needs of the exciting new facility.
