Components: VIP accommodation, gaming suites and restaurant
In a major focus on the Asian gaming market, and to capitalise on the opportunity presented by the 2011 Rugby World Cup, SKYCITY Auckland decided to upgrade and extend their hotel facilities. To provide new VIP gaming suites, rooms and a restaurant, level 5 of the hotel was extended and an extra floor (level 6) was added.
Employees of Xigo were contracted to provide advice to SKYCITY’s team and engineer to the contract.
Xigo’s proactive management style kept all parties informed of key risks and reinforced the need to make timely decisions, to enable the project to be delivered within the required timeframe.
The project was completed on time and met all of SKYCITY’s expectations. With fabulous views over the Auckland Harbour, the new VIP suites and gaming salons are successfully competing with top casino locations around the world, including Singapore, Macau and Sydney.
