Caesars Palace Atlantic City elevated its shopping experience with the completion of the $175 million retail complex, “The Pier at Caesars Palace,” which opened in 2006. This retail project features a fantastic array of high-end retail stores, directly accessible from the casino.

The challenge of The Pier project was that the conical-shaped column covers were sliced on multiple planes. The project was essentially a large-scale, 3-D geometric puzzle to engineer, create and install. Brad Oldham used a water-jet cutting technique on fire-rated plywood to create a key-and-lock assembly system that the studio artists then wrapped in hand-hammered copper. The weathered and organic look of copper was selected to support other architectural details of the project. Six round columns and three oval columns were covered with 500 square feet of hand-hammered copper. Another installation included 600 linear feet of ribbon, which covered an 18-inch I-beam that runs from the 1st to the 5th floors, near the escalator.

The client was not only pleased with the finished work, they also appreciated the consultation on installation, as the product design allowed the pieces to be bolted together on site, much like a huge puzzle.

The stunning columns mark the entryway into The Pier from the casino.
