The Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs expansion called for a seven-story, 238-room hotel and a 20,000-sq. foot convention center that accommodats banquets for up to 800 people, and concert seating for 1,500. The project provided nearly 350 construction jobs over the course of 15 months. Once the expansion project was finished, it increased the Pocono Downs’ workforce to nearly 2,000 employees.
McCrossin Foundations was subcontracted to install the drilled shafts for the building’s foundation. The drilled shafts ranged in diameter from 30 to 60 inches with depths up to nearly 50 feet with sockets 30 feet into siltstone. Two drill rigs were utilized to meet the aggressive three week installation schedule. The project was complicated due to the design-build nature of some portions.
