Golden Moon Hotel and Casino – Choctaw, MS
900,000 SQFT interior space, 98,000 SQFT of fiber-type PVC roofing, 45,000 SQFT of Carlisle EPDM rubber roofing, 269,000 SQFT of Johns Manville modified bitumen roofing, 27,000 SQFT of waterproofed walls and a waterproof observation deck. Approximately three miles of shop fabricated metal flashing and coping.
The Golden Moon Hotel and Casino’s 28 stories rise to 315 feet, where the 80-foot golden geodesic sphere houses an observation deck, lounge, dance floor, and signature restaurant. A full 90,000 square feet of the 843,000 square feet of interior space is dedicated to gaming, and another 11,600 square feet are dedicated to the many meeting facilities. Amenities also include indoor and outdoor pools, fitness facilities, and an immense aqua-scape with five water features in the front of the hotel.
This fast-track project required waterproof walls and a waterproof observation deck, in addition to functional and aesthetic requirements for the over 400,000 square feet of roofing. Special strategies needed to be put in place in order to meet the hurried deadline.
The Golden Moon Hotel and Casino required three roofing systems in its over 400,000 square feet of roofing and incorporates the logo of the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians on the Casino level. This project includes over 269,000 feet of Johns Manville bitumen roofing, 98,000 square feet of white fiber-type PVC roofing, and 45,000 square feet of Carlisle EPDM rubber roofing.
This project required 30 levels of temporary dry-in to be installed to allow the quickest possible completion of the ornate interior finishes before the finished roofing was installed.
In addition to the over 400,000 square feet of roofing, the project included waterproofing 27,000 square feet of walls and waterproofing the 3,464 square foot observation deck housed in the geodesic sphere on the apex of the structure.
Special considerations for this project included the fast-track time-line, the temporary dry-in strategy, and the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians logo installed in the roofing.
