Thompson work recognized

A project led by Thompson Engineering to dry dock the IP Casino has been named an Engineering News Record Project of the Year. The project received the top award out of more than 100 entries in the Texas / Louisiana / Mississippi region.

In 2011, Thompson Engineering began work to design a first-of-its-kind solution to create a stable foundation and graving dock for the 32-million-pound casino vessel, essentially turning the floating building into a land-based structure without moving it.

The IP Casino, which is owned by Boyd Gaming Corp., was never closed to customers during construction.
