The Coushatta Tribe of Louisiana Selects Yates Construction to Renovate its Grand Hotel

San Antonio, TX , October 16, 2013, Yates Construction was selected by The Coushatta Tribe of Louisiana to renovate the exterior envelope of the existing Coushatta Grand Hotel, a six-story building and one of three hotels at the Coushatta Casino Resort in Kinder, Louisiana. This work will consist of approximately 60,000 SF of existing roofing to be removed and replaced; roof safety equipment to be tested and replaced (if failing); 64,000 SF of existing EIFS demo and replacement, which will be accomplished in a series of 14 drops around the building perimeter; window replacement and the removal/replacement of the exterior building lighting systems. Access to the cladding and electrical work will be through a scaffolding system that will be shrink wrapped to offer the first line of moisture protection while the building skin is being removed and dehumidification units will be installed for additional moisture control. Substantial completion is scheduled for late summer 2014.
