Southern California Edison recently completed the task of providing permanent power to the Soboba Replacement Casino and Resort Project in San Jacinto. This marks yet another milestone reached as development continues to move forward with finishes on the exterior and the interior.
"This allows us to start testing and continue our systems commissioning process," said Tom Groenendal, Senior Superintendent for C.W. Driver, general contractors for the project. "We need electrical in place before we can test the air handler units, fire alarm systems and make sure all building systems operate as intended."
It also will allow for areas that are already primed and painted to undergo the pre-punch and final painting under permanent lighting.
Approximately 400 trades people are moving through the phases – some simultaneously and some in succession.
"We always have a trade chasing another trade; for instance, the painters will follow the drywall installers," explained superintendent Zach Garcia. "We also work from the top down for cleanliness and further efficiency."
