Pinnacle gambled on Castle, and Won

Two magnificent casino projects are open for business, and two complex and different site projects are safely completed by Castle Contracting. Lumiere Place in downtown Saint Louis, and River City Casino in South Saint Louis County – each selected Castle Contracting for the site component of the work, and Castle’s bundled approach proved valuable in each project.

Lumiere, which opened more than a year ago, awarded Castle Contracting the Pedestrian link, a tunnel that connects the Edward Jones Dome with the new casino facility. Catle managed the earthwork and utilities for the project as well as the at-grade logistics. Castle worked under McCarthy Construction on the project.



A tightening economy impacts the good work of Saint Louis Children’s Hospital. Castle Contracting has long had a close association with the hospital, both as a contractor on site, and as a benefactor. That relationship was amplified in 2009 when Rich Ledbetter joined the SLCH Development Board, and worked closely with the hospital to create Kidstruction.

Because large charitable gifts are harder to find, Kidstruction is a different kind of outreach, it’s just $1 at a time. In December 2009, Castle trades-persons were asked to consider donating $1 per hour, for each hour worked over a single workweek. Overwhelmingly the good people of Castle participated at more than 90% and some even donated up to $5 per hour worked.
