Red Hawk Casino Resort
Placerville, California

This 228,300 square foot resort is built in the foothills of the Sierra Mountains east of Sacramento, California.


The gaming facility is a three level braced steel frame structure built on a steep hillside consisting of:

  • 2,000 slot machines
  • 75 table games
  • A buffet and six restaurants
  • Four bars, a gift shop and child care center
  •  A 1,100,000 square foot, 8-level, 3,300 space parking garage


The project utilized special foundation systems to “terrace” the structure into the side of the mountain.

Since level 1 of the garage is situated 85 feet below the resort entrance, three precast bridges are used to enter and exit the parking garage.

The project cost was $120-130 million.

Architect: Cuningham Group
