Treasure Island Resort & Casino Hotel Expansion
Treasure Island Resort & Casino
165,000 sq. ft.
The resort hotel located in Welch, Minnesota, features 216 rooms, 24 whirlpool suites and seven meeting rooms. Additional amenities include a waterfall-filled tropical swimming pool, hot tubs, child care facilities, video arcade and a fitness room. This project also incorporated an addition to the existing casino. Treasure Island employed Knutson as a design/build contractor. Within this framework, Knutson hired and collaborated with an architect to develop the owner’s needs into plans and specifications. Involved from the project’s inception, Knutson turned its concept-to-completion experience into practical design decisions — saving the owner time and money. Within six months, Treasure Island opened the first three floors of the hotel. The entire seven-story facility was complete in another three months — on time and under budget. As a result of exhaustive planning and teamwork, Knutson met the aggressive completion goal. Even then, Knutson remained on call.
