Delivering a new casino in the heart of the West Valley entertainment and sport district



At Rider Levett Bucknall, we aim to create exceptional experiences for our communities. One of the ways we do this is by aligning our capability with client needs. In the case of Tohono O’odham Gaming Enterprise, our team of specialists assisted them by creating, evaluating, and managing project controls that addressed the critical issues of time, cost, scope, and quality of their casino. Our efforts, in conjunction with Summit Project Management, resulted in the successful delivery of a new casino in the heart of the West Valley entertainment and sport district.

Just a short drive from the State Farm Stadium, Desert Diamond Casino (dubbed “Jackpot Valley”) brings 1.2 million SF of entertainment space to the west valley. The casino was developed around the core concept of a truly distinct entertainment experience, including over 75,000 SF of gaming space, comprising the latest slots, table games, a poker room, and a bingo hall.
Rider Levett Bucknall – in conjunction with Summit Project Management – provided project management services to the Tohono O’odham Gaming Enterprise. In a unified effort, we demonstrated one of our core strengths: promoting project and team performance through oversight of resource utilization, schedule and risk management, and compliance with health, safety, and building ordinance regulatory requirements.

Our team represented the needs of the Gaming Enterprise, ensuring that their goals remained top-of-mind throughout the construction of the casino. RLB and Summit combined their strengths, assembling the best team to see the project through from pre-construction, to construction and turnover.
