Case Study

Deadwood Mountain Casino

Metal Sales™ exterior wall panels blend modern performance with a vintage look at the newly renovated Mountain Grand Deadwood Casino and Resort in Deadwood, SD.

The original building was once a gold ore and slime processing plant for the Homestake Mining Company in the early 1900s. Now wrapped in Metal Sales metal wall panels, the landmark structure is restored to its historic beginnings.

The metal facade of the Mountain Grand shines against the slopes of the Black Hills, just as it did when it was newly constructed in 1906. The revitalization project features 560,000 square feet of 26 gauge, 2.5” Corrugated, galvanized metal panels to achieve the vintage aesthetic. No additional finishes or colors were used, in the interests of allowing the exterior to age naturally over time.

The Mountain Grand renovation not only returns the plant to its former glory, but also offers modern resort luxuries to its guests. Visitors can enjoy the Mountain Grand casino in a city that once reveled in the riches of the gold rush and continues to provide cultural and economic value today. The corrugated metal facade deepens the experience of Deadwood’s colorful past and present for resort goers.

“Despite working during a harsh South Dakota winter, the project ran smoothly with the help of Metal Sales’ excellent sales and technical support team,” says Bob Heibult, Building Division Manager on the project. “Metal Sales once again delivered a high-quality product. The sales team helped us identify the metal wall panel we needed to duplicate the building’s original early-1900s aesthetic.”

All Metal Sales panels have a long life span of 50 years or more, are 100% recyclable and contain a high percentage of recycled material – contributing to LEED points. In addition to its quality products, Metal Sales boasts a 50 year heritage of outstanding customer service.

Metal Sales has 21 locations throughout the United States. The company’s highly-trained professionals offer comprehensive, user-friendly product information and work with project managers, estimators, installers and engineers until each product application is successfully completed. Due to their efforts to maintain this level of customer service, Metal Sales has developed long-lasting partnerships with their customers.

The Deadwood Mountain Grand Casino and Resort was completed in April 2013. The project team included architect Lund Associates Ltd., Rapid City, SD, general contractor and installers, Heavy Constructors and Gustafson Builders, Rapid City, SD.
