The Fort Hall Business Council has planned an official groundbreaking Oct. 17 on its $35 million expansion to the Shoshone-Bannock Hotel & Event Center.

The project, dubbed Casino Expansion Phase II, includes a 72,984-square-foot casino that will be directly attached to the existing event center.

Ormond Builders, Inc. of Idaho Falls, has been named the new contractor for the project, according to a press release. The contractor provided one of several bids submitted and reviewed by the Business Council and the Tribes’ project team, which includes the Tribes’ finance, planning, TERO/TOSHA, and gaming staff.

According to the release, the construction agreement includes a one-story new casino, an 8,084-square-foot bingo hall, and a pre-function corridor with connected storage.

The pre-function corridor and storage will be located along the north side of the existing Chiefs Events Center. It will complete functional requirements not started during construction of the Shoshone-Bannock Hotel and Events Center.

Groundbreaking for the new venue was originally set for early spring, but the project stalled when the original architect, Indian-owned, Thalden-Boyd-Emery Architects of St. Louis, withdrew.
It is estimated the project will add about 90 jobs over a 16-month construction period.
