A new MGM casino resort, the MGM National Harbor, is set to open in Prince George’s County, MD in late 2016. The resort is located on 23 acres of land overlooking the Potomac River, about 10 miles outside of Washington, D.C. The plans include a 24 story hotel tower, 3,600 slot machines, 160 table games, a theater, 234 hotel rooms, 12 restaurants headed by notable chefs, retail space, and more. MGM International Resorts has high hopes for MGM National Harbor to spark local economic growth by employing at least 3,600 workers, and by drawing tourists to the area. Additionally, efforts have been made to engage the community in the resort plans; an abandoned elementary school was recently converted into the MGM National Harbor Employment Center, and plans are in the works to exhibit a locally inspired art exposition known as the MGM National Harbor Heritage Collection. Over 1,000 construction workers have been onsite thus far to ensure the project is completed on schedule.
With a strong presence in the greater D.C. area, Kenseal Construction Products was thrilled to supply materials necessary in constructing this well known resort from the ground up. Sales Representative Ted Branthover worked closely with Capital Insulation, Gamma Construction and Component Assembly (all valued Kenseal customers) to provide materials for the foundation waterproofing, roofing, and expansion joints. Some of the products used for this project include:
- Dow Corning® DefendAir 200
- Dow Corning® Allguard Silicone Elastomeric Coating
- 1,000 rolls of Bituthene® 3000
- 2,000 sausages of Dow Corning® 791
- 1,200 sausages of Dow Corning® 995
- 300 rolls of Blueskin® PE200 HT
