The Korte Company was awarded a construction contract for a 6-story, 284 room Visitor’s Quarters at Scott Air Force Base in Illinois. The new 170,000 square foot Scott Inn will replace the base’s current facilities being used to lodge Airmen, their families, and transient personnel.
The 284-room facility includes 267 guest rooms and 17 business suites. The guest rooms include many of the amenities as a hotel room, including a bed, desk, closet, as well as a microwave and refrigerator. Business suites, located on the upper floors, are larger and have additional square footage for an in-room washer and dryer.
The facility also includes a fitness area, conference rooms, retail shops, business center, administrative offices, an outdoor patio and an on-site laundry.
The Scott Inn provides many benefits for the community as well as the personnel at the base. With close proximity to ground transportation, including the Metro Link, guests as well as inbound personnel can access many areas and sites in the surrounding community such as the James Sports Center, recreational centers, dining facilities and childcare.
