Live! Casino – Maryland

Live! Casino Maryland, owned by The Cordish Companies, is the largest casino and entertainment venue on the East Coast with nearly 4,300 Las Vegas-style slot machines and gaming tables, open around the clock for guests. The two million-square-foot structure includes approximately 300,000 square feet of casino space on the first level.

McLaren Engineering Group was engineer of record providing civil, geotechnical, and structural engineering services for the $200 million Live! Casino Maryland in Hanover. This project was fast-tracked and went from initial design concept to grand opening in just 17 months!

Civil + Geotechnical Engineering

Civil engineering services were completed for permitting, design and construction of 14 different off-site and on-site roadway improvements, including engineering Maryland’s first Diverging Diamond Intersection.

Diverging Diamond Interchange

The MD-295 Baltimore-Washington Parkway and Arundel Mills Boulevard interchange was redesigned to direct the flow of traffic over the bridge “on the wrong side,” passing right-to-right instead of left-to-left. The result was just one signalized intersection, improving traffic flow and accommodating the increased volume anticipated with the development of Live! Maryland Casino. McLaren’s Baltimore office provided site and civil engineering, roadway engineering, surveying, and construction oversight to keep the project on schedule. The interchange was opened just 12 months after design efforts began (33 days after the SHA Access Permit was issued), and just days before the grand opening of the Casino.

Ground Improvement

McLaren utilized in-situ testing techniques to come up with the solution that using a ground improvement method called “Dynamic Aggregate Replacement,” would increase the allowable soil bearing pressure. This eliminated the need for a deep foundation system and saved the project more than $2 million.

Structural Engineering

Structural engineering services were provided for the design of the foundation system and superstructure for the casino, porte cochere, central utility plant, 4,300-car / 6-level parking garage above the gaming facility, and LED and static signage.
