Enduring Momentum Strengthens Big Span Structures
HERNANDO, Fla., Nov. 16, 2010 /PRNewswire/ — Masters of creating innovative and alternative cost-conscious solutions for the enclosure of commercial, industrial and recreational facilities, Big Span Structures announced today the completion of a 70 x 100-foot open-span frame supported fabric structure in Tallapoosa County, Alabama. The structure was commissioned by Creek Indian Enterprises for PCI Gaming and took just six weeks from purchase order to completion. Due to its success, a second structure is being installed in Montgomery, Alabama.
PCI Gaming is the operational division of Creek Indian Enterprises and operates three casinos in central and southern Alabama. “Big Span provides a very solid structure,” reported Ron Nesbitt of PCI Gaming. “We have one of their competitor’s structures at one of our other casino properties, and the Big Span structure has more structural framework that allows greater loads to be hung from above. In a casino environment, this is a great benefit because we require lots of heating, ventilating and air conditioning ductwork, surveillance cameras and overhead lighting elements,” he said.
According to Nesbitt, the influencing factors in having Big Span erect the second building were the product quality and commitment to meet installation obligations. “They provided a quick turnaround for engineering specs; questions and follow-up epitomized a high degree of accuracy. An excellent team player, they understand the importance of getting the structure erected quickly and properly,” he said. Through the team’s efforts, the structure opened a week earlier than planned. “They consistently exceeded expectations,” said Nesbitt.
