Barona Valley Ranch Resort & Casino

The Barona Resort and casino project is one of the largest hotel/ casinos in the San Diego area. With a western theme, the project was designed by some of the biggest Las Vegas casino designers and at the time had all the state of the art networking and casino systems incorporated. The casino floor was designed to permit easy changes to gaming layouts, while security and private gaming areas were incorporated to ensure secure separation between areas.

Recognized as San Diego’s best casino year after year, the resort offers facilities for gaming, hotel, weddings, golf and has developed into a destination resort and casino. Revenues from the facility have transformed the lives of the native Indians, while offering tourists and gamers a wonderful retreat to enjoy.

The scale and stringent schedule that was followed on the project required more than 60 supervisory personnel to be on in the last months of the project with work running around the clock. The facility was turned over on the day guaranteed to the owner’s satisfaction.
