Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Southeast awarded this contract September 2019 to Korte for design and construction of a new Navy Gateway Inn and Suites (NGIS) at Naval Air Station (NAS) Key West, Florida.
Navy Gateway Inn and Suites (NGIS) will replace three existing lodging facilities that suffered extensive damage from Hurricane Irma.

The new NGIS facility will accommodate transient personnel associated with year-round training operations, will serve as a satellite facility for the adjacent NGIS “Fly Navy” lodging facility, and shall be designed in accordance with the Unified Facility Criteria (UFC) 4-720-01 Lodging Facilities.
The work is expected to be completed by January 2022.
