AFG providing CMR services for the Rehabilitation of the Historic Sheriff’s House in DE

AFG is serving as Construction Management Representative for this National Park Service rehabilitation project.

In December 2021, the National Park Service awarded AFG a contract to provide Construction Management Representative services for the Rehabilitation of the Historic Sheriff’s House located within First State National Historical Park in New Castle, Delaware.

The Sheriff’s House was originally constructed in 1857 and is the last remaining structure from Delaware’s first prison system. The building was donated to the NPS in 2013 by the State of Delaware and will be utilized as the central visitor contact station for the First State National Park. The Sheriff’s House has been unoccupied since 1990. This project is intended to correct deferred maintenance and set the facility to reopen for visitors.

This project, scheduled to run from January 2022 through June 2023, will rehabilitate the Sheriff’s House for occupancy and provide renovations and allocation of the interior spaces for park operations, visitor services, exhibits, and additional office spaces. The adaptive re-use and occupancy of this building requires structural reinforcement, installation of heating and ventilation systems, electrical systems, potable water, and sanitary sewer, communications and IT systems, physical security hardware and monitoring systems, and fire protection and life safety systems. Interior and Exterior historic fabric and elements will be repaired and restored as appropriate.
