Korsmo Construction worked with the Squaxin Island Tribe to construct both hotel towers at the Little Creek Casino property over 10 years ago, and was recently selected to perform phased renovations to update the hotel rooms in each tower. The project included fully renovating the bathrooms, new custom wallpaper, new furniture, paint, updated electrical fixtures, all new flooring, and new Jacuzzi tubs in the hotel suites. A model room was built in advance to serve as a model room for marketing purposes to show guests what upcoming renovations would include.
The Tribe provided all furniture, fixtures, and equipment, which required diligent coordination with their team to ensure all items were ordered and on site early for smooth and timely installation. Korsmo also worked with and mentored a Native-owned contracting company on this project, providing guidance and assistance to further develop the firm’s construction management capabilities. The hotel remained fully operational throughout construction.
