Guarantee Electrical and GECO Systems geared up quickly to complete a normal 12-month nightclub project in half the time at Ameristar Casino. The ambitious schedule was met, despite sourcing components from around the world. By the New Year’s Eve opening, Ameristar Casino welcomed Paris Hilton, Brody Jenner, Kim Kardashian and other celebrities to HOME.
The $15 million Las Vegas-style nightclub features what is considered to be the most elaborate, high-tech theatrical lighting and sound system outside Las Vegas. Guarantee Electrical Co. took charge of the electrical construction and GECO Systems led systems installation on a team led by general contractor C. Rallo Contracting, Inc. Guarantee and GECO Systems masterfully coordinated construction using:
- Lighting systems from Denmark
- Truss systems from England
- Other parts from China
- Audio-visual systems designed by Audiotek of Ireland
Each of HOME’s two spaces – an inviting lounge and a high-energy nightclub – features its own top-of-the-line sound system. From the candlelit stone-faced foyer, guests move into a luxurious lounge with caramel-colored couches, recessed banquettes and a signature six-foot fireplace. Ambient lighting, a DJ booth and three 42-inch plasma televisions behind the bar complete the design.
The main nightclub hosts two 30-foot marble onyx bars on each end with three red five-foot diameter chandeliers centered overhead. A Brazilian walnut-wood dance floor is framed with 20 bottle-service tables. Five recessed banquettes, upholstered in red crocodile leather and equipped with Xboxes, are elevated above the dance floor on each side of the club. The DJ booth with state-of-the-art sound and lighting systems complete the entertainment venue.
