Rivers Casino,
Pittsburgh, PA

Constructed on the Pittsburgh northern waterfront adjacent to the stadium complex, Rivers Casino is a casino entertainment facility of over 2.8 million sf. The facility includes a three-story, 480,000 sf structural steel with slab on metal deck casino with a 60’ x 60’ grid. The foundations are auger-cast piles. A 90’ high circulation drum provides panoramic views across the riverfront where the three rivers converge.

The facility also features restaurants, ballrooms and entertainment venues and a ten-level, 3,900-car precast concrete parking facility containing over 1.3 million sf of floor area. The casino floor extends underneath the lowest level of the garage.

Thoughtful landscaping and architectural steel as well as an amphitheater create an active leisure space along the waterfront for locals and visitors to enjoy.

The project received an Award of Merit by Delaware Valley Association of Structural Engineers (DVASE).
