Visiting Quarters


   

2008 Design Award, AMC/USAF Design Awards

On-base billeting quarters are essential to provide an environment conducive to successful accomplishment of the increasingly complicated and important jobs the active duty and civilian personnel must perform. The 350-room, five-story Visiting Quarters is a modern space that will provide living, administration, housekeeping, guest laundry, and lobby areas.

The Visiting Quarters will be located next to the Davis Conference Center by realigning Florida Keys Avenue to provide a central campus type setting for visitors. The VQ is also designed and oriented to maximize the amount of rooms that allow the guests to enjoy the views of the Bay and Tampa skyline from their rooms. The existing Officer's Club (Building 397) and additional substandard facilities will be demolished to help accommodate the new facility.

The design and finishes will be selected in accordance with the AMC Architectural Compatibility Plan for MacDill AFB. The project is designed to meet DoD AT/FP requirements, telephone/data/communication systems, utilities, and site improvements with special preparation to meet FEMA requirements.
