Legacy and River Cree Resort and Casino Break Ground on New Concert and Event Centre

Legacy Building Solutions and the River Cree Resort and Casino have broken ground on The Venue, a new concert and event centre expected to open in the fall of 2015.

Rendition of the new multi-purpose entertainment facility at River Cree Resort & Casino. The new fabric structure by Legacy Building Solutions is expected to be completed Fall of 2015.

Following the sudden closing of the previous Venue at the River Cree after an engineering review found that the structure did not meet code, the management needed a new, code-compliant event space contracted, designed and constructed as quickly as possible. They turned to Legacy Building Solutions of Canada for a custom fabric structure on a rigid steel frame.

"Legacy was chosen because we were able to customize the new venue to meet the River Cree Resort and Casino's exact demands," said Jim Kumpula, general manager of Legacy Building Solutions Canada. "Our fast-track process means that the building will be ready for events within about four months, far less time than most builders can manage."

The new multi-purpose event centre will be 140 x 220 feet, with an additional lean-to for a full bar and additional storage. There will be a second-floor mezzanine with box seating, total capacity of up to 2,500, washrooms and a foyer with an indoor connection to the River Cree Resort and Casino.
