The 2001 expansion included the hotel, event arenas, spa and fitness centers, and the Casino of the Sky. The 35-story hotel, which is the jewel of the resort, features an entry canopy that is crowned by IMETCO’s Series 300 Standing Seam Metal Roofing in 22-gauge steel with a highly reflective bright silver painted finish. Series 300 also covers the Sky Valet at the main entrance to Casino of the Sky, as well as the casino, arena, theater, meeting rooms and ballroom areas.
In addition to the structural and performance benefits of the Series 300 metal roof, it’s sustainability and energy efficiency synchronized with the Mohegan’s cultural belief in greenness, and the resort’s objective to reduce emissions and costs with environmentally beneficial building and maintenance strategies.
