Tropicana Casino and Resort parking garage collapse in Atlantic City, New Jersey.



Thornton Tomasetti provided emergency response services, structural peer review, and continuous on-site presence following the October 30, 2003 parking garage collapse at the Tropicana Casino and Resort.

Challenges we faced included preserving evidence during the demolition of the partially collapsed structure, and determining the cause and origin of the collapse.

Our dedicated team comprised of members from our New York, Newark, and Philadelphia offices, were on site 24 hours/7 days a week.

Following the collapse, Thornton Tomasetti assisted in ligation as an expert witness regarding the cause and origin of the collapse. Thornton Tomasetti used advanced modeling and materials testing to determine the cause of the collapse and reviewed documents and project correspondence to assign responsibility.
