AFG Awarded CM contract for NPS Old Courthouse in Gateway Arch

AFG will be providing construction management services to rehabilitate, restore, and upgrade the National Historic Landmark Old Courthouse.

AFG has been awarded a contract to provide construction management services to rehabilitate and restore the Old Courthouse, a National Historic Landmark within Gateway Arch National Park. The Old Courthouse is located directly across from the St. Louis Arch Grounds and has served as a center of political and social activity since its original construction in 1816, with continued additions and construction taking place in phases over a 36-year evolution. Each wing within the structure was developed in a slightly different style with different construction methods, adding complexity to projects aiming to renovate and preserve the historic fabric.

This project, beginning in January 2023, will provide accessibility and life-safety improvements, installation of a building-wide fire suppression and alarm system, updates to the heating and cooling systems, replacement of 140 sets of 6 over 6 windows, and exterior improvements.

AFG will be working to significantly update the NPS Old Courthouse building while protecting the Historic Fabric and addressing hazardous materials removal. Additional factors within this project include accessibility upgrades, elevator installation, exterior improvements, and replacement of 1940s Heating and Cooling systems.
