Turning Stone Casino Hotel

VDA provided services for a $308 million expansion of the Oneida Indian Nation’s Turning Stone Resort & Casino. The project involved a 287-room hotel tower that at 20 stories is the tallest building between Albany and Syracuse. The 200,000 sq. ft. tower, which opened the summer of 2005, is part of a dramatic new grand entry to the resort, and also provides additional dining, recreation and lounging opportunities.

VDA’s scope included full consulting services for four (4) gearless passenger elevators and two (2) geared service elevators to serve the tower; a pair of escalators in the Winter Garden and a pair of escalators in the Event Center, and fifteen (15) hydraulic elevators for various applications throughout the tower podium.
