SKYCITY Entertainment Group has announced that local building company Hansen Yuncken has been contracted to deliver the majority of works for the $330m Adelaide Casino Expansion.
Construction on the project begins next month for completion in 2020.
Hansen Yuncken state manager, Mark Rosenboom said the company has assembled an experienced and highly-qualified local project team to work alongside the SKYCITY team.
“Hansen Yuncken is very pleased to be given the opportunity to partner with SKYCITY on this iconic Adelaide development.” Rosenboom said.
“This significant project will continue our long-term relationship with Adelaide Casino having undertaken the first Casino Development in 1985 including a number of subsequent upgrades over the past 30 years”.
The redevelopment will bring together up to 1000 construction professionals over the life of the project and create 800 permanent jobs on completion.
Hansen Yuncken will work predominately with local contractors and suppliers to construct and fit-out the 12-level development.
Adelaide Casino general manager, Luke Walker, said the expansion of Adelaide Casino will create a significant drawcard for South Australia helping to boost economic development and tourism across the state.
