Rivers Casino & Resort

One of the most highly anticipated additions to the Empire State is the Rivers Casino in Schenectady, NY. This $330 million facility is the flagship of an even larger mixed-use development that is revitalizing the area.


Criterion Acoustics’ expertise with clubs, hotels, and commercial acoustical design made it the optimal choice for the project. CA performed sound isolation, mechanical noise control, and internal room acoustics throughout the attraction.


“Casinos are consistently becoming higher-end properties,” notes CA President Dave Kotch. “That means an increased emphasis on sound isolation between the gaming floor and the guestrooms, as well as guestroom-to-guestroom. Visitors expect a higher-quality experience than hotels can offer — acoustical design plays an essential role in delivering on that promise.”
