DTC provided renovations to a Navy Visitors Quarters (VQ) at the Naval Air Station Key West as a task order under a Multiple Award Construction Contract (MACC) with Naval Facilities Engineering Command Southeast.

Navy Gateway Inns and Suites operates the VQ in the facility formerly known as the Bachelor Officers Quarters and later the Combined Bachelor Quarters.

It accommodates transient senior enlisted members, commissioned officers and government civilians. Distinguished Visitors quarters are also available for senior commissioned officers. The VQ is the tallest building on the island of Key West and is readily identifiable with its “FLY NAVY” logo printed prominently on the south side of the building.

This project provided upgraded facilities to enhance the quality of life and provide temporary lodging for the visiting service men and women training a Naval Air Station Key West.

DTC’s role included design, engineering services and construction of various renovations and improvements to the existing facility.

Exterior renovation elements included: repair to the complete building exterior, replace the existing sealant joints around the building windows, doors and louvers; repair exterior concrete stairs and replace the existing exterior handrail system.

Interior renovations included fire protection upgrades, boiler room upgrades and remediation and repair due to condensation issues in the linen rooms.
