AECOM Tishman served as CM for this 850,000-SF mixed-use commercial and residential casino resort. The first of its kind in Massachusetts, the casino resort represents a substantial investment in the city and acts as a catalyst for growth.
The project encompasses a 125,000-SF casino; a 250-room, four-star hotel tower; 85,000 SF of Class A office space; 45,000 SF of meeting and convention space, with pre-function and back-of-house/food preparation areas; a multiplex and bowling alley; 165,000 SF of retail and restaurant space, including seven eateries; and a structure containing parking for 3,400 vehicles, dock and physical plant space. The scope of work also included the relocation of a historic masonry church. The mixture of new construction and two rehabilitated historic buildings creates a vibrant town square atmosphere in downtown Springfield.
We also served as design-builder for the parking garage component, which has a 300-by-600 footprint and consists of an eight-level structure containing 1.16 million SF.
AECOM Tishman followed stringent diversity requirements for both the contracting and workforce, resulting in our exceeding the MWBE goal by nearly ten percentage points, achieving MWBE participation of 29.9%. The project garnered positive press for efforts including workforce diversity, historic preservation, economic revitalization, community relations and operational excellence.
