Temporary lodging facility renovations completed

hotel room

A newly renovated business suite from the temporary living facility on Peterson Air Force Base, Colorado, is available for reservation as of March 26, 2021. Renovations on Building 1026 began in 2016 and included updates on corroded steel, a deteriorated concrete deck, significant plumbing leaks and outdated electrical panels.

PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. --

The newly renovated temporary lodging facility on Peterson Air Force Base reopened on March 26, 2021.

Following the opening ceremony, the west side of Building 1026 was open for visitors to view the new rooms. Reservations are now available by calling 719-556-7851.

Building 1026 was originally built in 1968 with the purpose of housing military personnel and Department of Defense civilian employees who were temporarily assigned to Peterson Field and Cheyenne Mountain Air Force Station, their respective names at the time.

“Renovations on the TLF began back in 2016 and cost a total of $1.4 million,” explained Sean Dooley, 21st Force Support Squadron lodging general manager. “Originally the project began as a replacement of the TLF soffit panels, typically installed on the roof overhang of a building to protect the structure from animals and weather. However, once lead paint was discovered on the old panels, other issues began to present a larger challenge.”

Issues corrected in the renovation process include corroded steel, a deteriorated concrete deck, significant plumbing leaks and outdated electrical panels.

The updated facility can support more than 13,000 guests. Military and DoD civilians on temporary duty orders are priority one guests. Active duty members, DoD retirees and DoD civilians with a status other than TDY are considered priority two (space available). Space available guests may make reservations up to 120 days in advance depending on occupancy levels.

The starting cost of visiting quarters range from $89 to $129 per night. Business suites begin at $98 per night and large business suites begin at $99 per night.

 Reopening the TLF will save $327,000 a year in living expenses versus off-base arrangements.
