Nevada based Burke Construction Group was hired by developer Lorenzo Doumani to manage the demolition and implosion of the Clarion Hotel and Casino in preparation for future development. Opened in 1970, the property has had many owners and several name changes over the years including the Debbie Reynolds Hotel and Casino, Greek Isles, Paddlewheel, Royal Americana and Royal Inn. On Oct 27, 2014, the demolition and structural removal began on the six acre site with the 12‐story, 202 guest room hotel tower scheduled for implosion in true Vegas style on February 10, 2015 between 1:31 and 2:31 a.m.
“We’re delighted to be working on Lorenzo’s project. Wea have assembled a dream team with two of the best demolition and implosion firms in the business, Ken Mercurio of Diversified Demolition Company and internationally renowned implosion expert Mark Loizeaux of Controlled Demolition International.” said Tony Dazzio, Burke Construction Group Chief Marketing / Governmental Affairs Officer.
“I wanted a local general contracting firm to manage my project but I needed someone I could trust”, said Lorenzo Doumani, owner of 305CCD, LLC. “Burke’s award winning reputation coupled with 30 years of experience made it an easy decision.”
“Significantly, this is but the first step in an ambitious and multifaceted development project envisioned by Lorenzo Doumani”, said Kevin Burke, Burke Construction Group President / CEO. “We look forward to developing a long term relationship and future project management and construction opportunities with 305CCD, LLC.”
