Tulalip Casino

This fire sprinkler project – consisting of a 215,000 sq. ft. casino and an 18,000 sq. ft. maintenance building – was particularly challenging due to multiple ceiling types and elevations, including a large entry domed ceiling. 

The casino features a very plush interior, complete with restaurants, a wine room, high roller rooms, many bars, and numerous slot machines.  Concealed type sprinklers were used, requiring approximately 30 different colors to be factory applied.  In some cases, the sprinkler plate colors needed to match hand painted ceiling murals.
