Eustis Engineering would like to highlight our involvement with the hotel addition to Harrah’s New Orleans Casino, now owned by Caesars Entertainment.
Eustis Engineering has completed multiple projects at this site in the past, including the geotechnical exploration for the Rivergate Convention Center, which originally included a tunnel designed to usher six lanes of high-speed interstate traffic to downtown New Orleans. The project was never completed as designed, so the tunnel was repurposed into underground parking beneath what is now Harrah's Casino on Poydras Street.
The additions include a hotel tower, which requires installation of new pile foundations beneath the existing basement accessed at street level through the existing structure. Eustis Engineering performed the geotechnical explorations for the hotel project; is the geotechnical engineer of record for the hotel foundation design; and is performing construction materials testing, inspection, special inspection, and engineering during construction services for this project.
The aerial view of Harrah’s New Orleans Casino and the hotel construction gives a whole new perspective to this downtown landmark. In this video, you can see several of Eustis Engineering’s project sites at different stages of construction.
