Final steel beam put into place at resort casino
MONTICELLO, N.Y., (Nov. 17, 2016) – Empire Resorts, Inc. held a private “Topping-Off” ceremony today as the final steel beam of the casino and hotel structure was put in place at the Montreign Resort and Casino.
The “Topping-Off” ceremony marked the end of the project’s steel erection, which comprised the assembly of approximately 10,000 individual steel beams which form the external building structure. After a short ceremony where hundreds of union construction workers and Empire executive signed the final 30-foot steel beam, it was hoisted into position.
“In a very short period of time we have come a very long way” said Charles A. Degliomini, executive vice president of Empire Resorts. “Montreign Resort Casino is already an engine for economic growth in the region, and today shows the progress we’ve made so far in making the resort casino a reality. This is a significant milestone for our project, for Sullivan County and for the entire Hudson Valley.”
