Deconstruction — Brand Burger Bar and Stories Diner
The second most exciting part of part a big construction project is, of course, deconstruction. Before anything new can be built, what was there before must be removed. Stress relieving visions of sledgehammers and jack hammers deconstructing old walls and floors can bring a smile to even the most timid person. In the case of ongoing upgrades at Grand Casino Mille Lacs and Hinckley, the deconstruction portion of the project has moved into a new phase: Overhead.
Taking apart the structurally suspended stuff above our heads can present unique challenges. If a worker is below a structure he/she must be extra careful so nothing falls on anyone. Sometimes it's possible access the inside of the building from a hole in the roof. This presents even more challenges now that we're coming into the cold season in Minnesota.
So next time you’re on our floor and you feel a cold breeze drift through a construction wall. Don't worry, we haven't cranked up the AC to silly levels. It's probably just a well-planned hole in the roof.
Hey, do you know what the MOST exciting part of a big construction project is? The Grand Opening! Only one more month or so and both the Brand Burger Bar and Stories Diner will be ready for their big debut!
