Northern Quest Casino Addition

Expanding the Northern Quest Casino and Resort: Engineering to reflect a contemporary urban design

DCI Engineers provided the structural design services for this expansion project at Northern Quest Casino.  Located in Airway Heights, Washington, near Spokane, the casino is operated by the Kalispel Tribe. The design of the new structure references specific natural elements that are culturally significant to the Kalispel tribe and their location along the river in Washington State.  This is particularly noticeable in the structure, artwork, décor, and textures used in the design.

Project Highlights

  • Project consisted of a 50,000-sf addition to the existing casino.
  • The new steel-framed building is single-story, and includes a small mezzanine level.
  • Services added: 600 gaming machines, non-smoking gaming floor with a separate entry, new sports bar and “liquid” bar, and a 50-seat casino lounge with an innovative water feature.
  • Fast-track design and construction process.
