Located just outside of Phoenix, the new 239,000 sf Vee Quiva Hotel & Casino replaces the old casino with a property that includes a 70,000 sf casino, seven restaurants, two bars and a “Premium Players Club Lounge.” The casino houses 900 slots, 50 table games, a 500+ seat bingo hall and poker room.
Also new to the site is the 3-story boutique hotel. It offers 90 rooms, a fitness center and outdoor pool area. A 6,000 sf Event Center is available for concerts, banquets, and special events.
TMCx provided commissioning services for this Indian Community casino project. We conducted functional testing and pre-functional test verifications of HVAC equipment, energy recovery chiller, domestic plumbing systems, generator system, and lighting controls. In addition, we witnessed major equipment start-ups; assisted with test, adjust, and balance report verification; and organized and developed project documentation for Salt River Project’s PowerWise New Construction Solutions rebate energy program.
Resolution: The equipment manufacturing representative was brought to the site to correct an internal problem with the recovery chiller.
Resolution: The boiler representative was called to the site during commissioning and needed to make several adjustments to correct the installation on the heating hot water boilers. Finding these incorrect settings prior to building occupancy in these critical systems prevented operational issues with the restaurants and hotel.
