Vee Quiva Casino and Resort

DOWL provided civil engineering site improvements for the development of a new casino and 90-room hotel with parking garage. The scope of work included design of grading and drainage improvements to safely route significant off-site drainage around the development, as well as water and sewer extensions to serve the site. The entry road to the resort was extended approximately 2,500 feet and consisted of a four-lane divided section. The typical roadway section included shallow retention areas in the median. Hydrologic and hydraulic calculations were performed to make sure that the design handled the significant amount of drainage coming toward the site from South Mountain.

Design of water and sewer extensions included approximately 9,356 lineal feet of 12-inch PVC C-905 water main and 3,554 lineal feet of 8-inch and 10-inch PVC sewer main to serve the new Vee Quiva Hotel & Casino in District 7. DOWL also provided additional design services for the development of a new water booster station and 2,000 lineal feet of water main piping to serve the new 173,000-square-foot casino and hotel. The booster station included two 200-hp, two 25-hp, and one 5-hp pumps. The booster station also included a prefabricated concrete building that housed electrical switch gear and PCC controls. A diesel generator was provided for auxiliary power. Mechanical components included domestic water and fire pumps and a hydropneumatic tank.
