Foxwoods Resort Lot 9 Expansion
Briggs Engineering & Testing provided Owners Quality Assurance, Construction Inspection and Materials Testing Services as a consultant to MPTN.
Foxwoods Resort at the time, was the largest gaming facility in the world. The $850 million project located 400 ft north of the Pequot Tower houses more of the same amenities that currently existed, but in addition offers a center for the performing arts, expanded convention space, additional parking garage and a 30 story hotel tower. The tower is an all-concrete structure, the low rise is steel structure and the parking garage is precast. These structures increased the resort to approximately 2.7 million sf of additional space.
Briggs Engineering & Testing performed all of the inspection and testing of the concrete, soils, pre-cast, reinforcing steel, structural steel, fireproofing, masonry, waterproofing, roofing, curtain wall and bituminous concrete. Briggs also supplied and maintained an onsite NVLAP certified laboratory.
