Nugget Resort Casino Renovations

Nugget Resort Casino, Sparks, NV

The Nugget is a hometown treasure. Over the years, besides being a great place to stay and play, the casino and resort has promoted Sparks, Nevada heritage and stewardship hosting and supporting public events in addition to providing a venue for blockbusters like the Rib Cook-off, Hot August Nights and Farmer’s Market.  In 2016 the Nugget Resort Casino was purchased by Marnell Gaming. Their goals include continuing the tradition of leadership in the Reno-Tahoe region and to update the rooms, resort and gaming areas for a more modern and fun experience.

Dianda Construction met the challenging schedule, converting 26 floors of the property’s West Tower – 781 rooms – into freshly appointed, modern guest rooms. Most importantly, the renovations were accomplished quickly while assuring that The Nugget maintained normal guest operations. Tower renovations were completed in just 22 weeks culminating with a grand public reveal at the open of the summer season. The team also helped refresh the 104,000-square-foot convention center where the Nugget offers multiple gathering spaces that can be configured for concerts, conferences and business meetings. Updates in this area were split into two phases and completed in just 4 months, again to coordinate around the resort’s reservation and events schedule. Convention area upgrades include bold new light fixtures, fresh finishes and an LED lighting display to coordinate with event colors. Casino area updates include new finishes in the gaming areas, new restaurants, updated lighting and a/v technology. The team renovated the existing fitness center to offer the most current equipment and more capacity for guests and 29,000 square feet of casino floor area.

The new look, modern with a nod to the Reno-Tahoe region’s history, will draw visitors and large events for years to come.
