The Casino said “many” local sub-contractors had been appointed by the chief contractor on the project, Hansen Yuncken.
“Local participation requirements in the construction contract ensure we’re maximising the benefits of the expansion for South Australian contractors and suppliers,” said Adelaide Casino general manager Luke Walker.
The expansion includes a new hotel and spa, gaming facilities, bars, restaurants and a refurbishment of the existing casino.
The first of two tower cranes were installed over the weekend.
The 123-metre crane will be commissioned this week and is expected to complete more than 80,000 lifts during construction.
Luke Walker said the existing facilities would be remodelled in the historic Railway Station “to match the high standards the new development will set, while protecting its special character which will remain intact”.
Construction is scheduled for completion in 2020.
Adelaide Casino is owned by New Zealand-based casino operator SkyCity.
