Cloward H2O, an expert in aquatic design, is looking back at one of its built-to-last projects, Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Connecticut, a leading entertainment, meeting and gaming destination.
The company provided design and full engineering services for the resort’s 10,000-square foot indoor swimming pool, as well as several hydrotherapy spas and a striking indoor hotel lobby water feature.
The resort, which is located on 240 acres along the banks of Thames River, was the largest private development project on the East Coast when it opened in October 1996. It is home to a 1,200-room luxury hotel, more than 100,000 square feet of meeting and events space, and130,000 square feet of retail space, as well as nine restaurants, a 10,000-seat arena, 115,000 square feet of gaming space, a 300-seat cabaret and a world-class spa.
There is also a business centre, a 10,000-square-foot indoor pool, a 17,500-square-foot sun terrace and an FEC called Kids Quest. The resort, designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates, features Mohegan tribal-inspired interiors by the architect David Rockwell and the 34-storey hotel tower is home to 1,200 guest rooms designed by Hirsch Bedner Associates.
As well as working on the indoor pool and spa facilities, Cloward H2O’s input included design and engineering for a dramatic water feature in the hotel lobby, where water flows from a reflecting pool and through a stream to the base of the 40-foot high Taughhanik Falls.
“Cloward H2O is grateful to have been a part of this talented project team and that the resort still operates with first-class efficiency and standards,” says a statement from the company.
Cloward H2O recently highlighted another built-to-last project at Hilton Waikoloa Village, where it provided engineering design for a three-quarter mile long saltwater boat way river with waterfalls and cascades, as well as three major pools with waterfalls and water slides and two major freshwater bird and fish exhibits with decorative waterfalls and cascades.
