It was announced that Enterprise, an IBEW Local 24 affiliated contractor, was awarded the electric and tele/data communications contract on the $442 million casino site in late June.
The casino will be located in downtown Baltimore near M&T Bank Stadium, a former project that saw Enterprise install all of the electricity, fire alarm system, and audio/visual and broadcast systems used within the entirety of the stadium. In fact, Enterprise has self-performed over one billion dollars of electric work in Baltimore over the company’s eighty years of existence.
Upon the project’s completion, the two-story casino will house 122,000 square feet of gaming space, including 2,500 video lottery terminals and 100 table games, making it the second largest casino in the state of Maryland. More importantly, the casino will create 1,700 employment positions for qualified residents in the Baltimore area.
Groundbreaking on Baltimore’s Horseshoe Casino began on May 29 and is projected to be completed in mid-2014.
