Project Summary


Three rooms in the Century Casino were set to be renovated in coordination with Emcee Construction & Management and Jennifer Jordan Interior Design. Arrow was brought in to engineer the changes to their two poker rooms, one of which was a high-limit room that involved top-quality finishings, as well as overseeing the demolition of an existing food and beverage area within the casino.

The outdated rooms were set to be modernized and updated to world-class standards. Arrow was responsible for ensuring the casino could remain in operation while renovations were completed. In order to maintain a fully operational casino, work was carefully completed using a phased approach. Throughout the process, Arrow’s electrical department coordinated with the Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission to ensure that all elements of lighting and cabling were done within regulation.

As part of the project management of this renovation, Arrow supervised and recommended changes to meet the high standards of the design while staying on budget. Though the project was faced with numerous change orders, many of which resulted in increased costs, Arrow worked to find creative solutions to make sure budgets and timelines were maintained as closely as possible.

As the project continued, Arrow utilized the experience they gained during the initial phase to streamline the process and improve client communications, allowing for a faster and easier build process.


“Part of the renovation was a relocation of a number of VLT’s. This required the electrical team to take a close look at the existing electrical work to determine how it to best utilize the existing structure without reworking the entire space.”
– Kevin Mattai, Lead Electrical Engineer
