Naval Facilities Engineering Command Southeast awarded this contract in September 2019 to Korte for the design and construction of a new Navy Gateway Inn and Suites (NGIS) at Naval Air Station (NAS) Key West, Florida.
NGIS will replace three existing lodging facilities that suffered extensive damage from Hurricane Irma. The new facility will be located at Trumbo Point, NAS Key West, and four buildings (A-648, A- 649, A-650, and A-727) will be demolished on Boca Chica Key, near the main NAS Key West airfield.
The new NGIS facility will accommodate transient personnel associated with year-round training operations, serve as a satellite facility for the adjacent NGIS “Fly Navy” lodging facility and shall be designed in accordance with the Unified Facility Criteria 4-720-01 Lodging Facilities.
The work is expected to be completed by January 2022.
