United Airlines has been issued a $9 million building permit for a renovation of one of its least appealing United Clubs at its Chicago O’Hare hub.
The project to renovate the club in Terminal B-6, part of an overall initiative to upgrade the executive clubs at several airport locations, will be completed by general contractor Clune Construction Company. Other key subtrades include: Electrical, Gurtz Electric Company; plumbing, F.J. Kerrigan Plumbing Co. Inc.; and ventilation, CT Mechanical, LLC.
The website loungereview.com says: “Despite its location at United’s hometown and largest hub, the United Club by gate B6 is hardly a showcase facility. Physically, the lounge is essentially a large open rectangular room devoid of any interesting visual features except for the tall glass and metal ceiling. Located above the concourse opposite to the gates, the lounge does not have windows for the most part, and therefore does not benefit from natural light or views.”
With the $9 million renovation investment, it is likely the United Club will be much more appealing at this location when the work is completed.
