SKYCITY Entertainment Group has today announced that local building company Hansen Yuncken has been contracted to deliver the majority of works for the $330m Adelaide Casino Expansion.
Hansen Yuncken who are celebrating 100 years of operations will be responsible for the construction of Adelaide’s most prestigious development along Adelaide’s Riverbank Precinct.

State Manager, Mark Rosenboom said that Hansen Yuncken has assembled an experienced and highly-qualified local project team to work alongside the SKYCITY team.

“This significant project will continue our long-term relationship with Adelaide Casino having undertaken the first Casino Development in 1985 including a number of subsequent upgrades over the past 30 years”.
The redevelopment will bring together up to 1000 construction professionals over the life of the project and create 800 permanent jobs on completion. This highly sophisticated and complex design will see Hansen Yuncken adopt several innovative solutions to manage the construction, logistics, program, quality and project safety. In addition, Hansen Yuncken will work predominately with local contractors and suppliers to construct and fit-out the 12-level development.

Adelaide Casino General Manager Luke Walker said “I am looking forward to working with Hansen Yuncken to create a world-class integrated entertainment destination for domestic, interstate and international visitors.”
