Sky’s the limit.

Adelaide’s Sky City Casino received a $3 million upgrade in 2007, with Sarah coming on board to build a new outdoor and entertainment area.

The ‘Oasis Bar’ is situated in the centre atrium of the casino and surrounded on all sides by three levels of the casino. The limited access to the site meant Sarah had to bring materials in with a crane, which required road closures and meticulous planning.

The new bar was constructed with structural steel canopies, which were partially assembled in the casino forecourt before being lifted above the building and positioned into place. A new concrete topping slab was added to the existing floor and was also craned into place using hoppers.

Other features included upgrading the heritage façade, waterproofing the existing suspended slab, new underfloor drainage and construction of the bar, timber decking and raised stage.

Sarah completed all works, on time and on budget, while the busy casino maintained full operation. Detailed planning and coordination with key stakeholders was integral to the projects success.
