AFG is utilizing Matterport 360-Digital Twin virtual scans to highlight the difference between the existing conditions and the results of months of historic preservation and restoration efforts on the historic Sheriff's House in New Castle, Delaware. The scans not only provide clients with the ability to "walk" the site virtually, but also provide accurate space measurements, and 3-D construction progress documentation for their records.

The Sheriff’s House Renovation, scheduled to run from January 2022 through January 2023, has reached a midpoint in its adaptive reuse project. The National Park Service is utilizing AFG’s Construction Management Services to rehabilitate the Sheriff’s House for occupancy and provide renovations of interior spaces for park operations, visitor services, exhibits, and additional office space. The House was constructed in 1857 on the site of a circa 1793 jail. It is all that remains of Delaware's first prison system.

To see how the Sheriff's House looked in the early stages of its $5.4M rehabilitation, visit:

AFG has been selected to support the General Services Administration Public Buildings Service on the multi-million dollar Trout River Land Port of Entry (LPOE) Modernization Project in New York state as its Construction Manager. The border crossing was originally constructed in 1932 and connects Elgin, Quebec to Constable, New York on the Canada-US border.

The project will provide a new one-story 14,405 sqft building to meet current land port design standards and CBP operational requirements. The LPOE includes 2 inbound inspection lanes, 1 primary non-commercial privately-owned vehicle inspection booth, 1 commercial vehicle inspection booth, and an outbound inspection canopy.

This project will be AFG's second LPOE project as AFG recently completed the Raymond, Montana LPOE for DHS/CBP and GSA Region 8.

AFG Project Managers, Ashley Abdullah, MBA, and Joe Dunn, CQM, recently hosted a tour of the 643,000 sqft Lyndon Baines Johnson (LBJ) Federal Building, home to the U.S. Department of Education, for members of AFG's DC office.

The historic building (circa 1961) also houses offices for the U.S. Secretary of Education, Miguel Cardona, Ed. D., and the National Library of Education, which was established in 1995.

The LBJ Renovation Program is among the first GSA Capital Projects to use Kahua, the replacement for the old ePM System, as well as use Matterport technology for virtual inspections.

Historic Preservation is key in retaining the authenticity and history of a structure, and in preventing the loss of irreplaceable heritage that creates a cultural, educational, and aesthetic legacy.
The National Park Service National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) coordinates and supports public and private efforts to identify, evaluate, and protect America’s historic treasures. AFG has been providing support services to buildings on a range of projects, by using cutting-edge methods of preservation and rehabilitation.

The care with which AFG’s Historic Preservation experts approach these projects allows us to ensure that these structures are retained for generations to come. Our team has the additional knowledge required to rehabilitate, preserve, restore, or reconstruct a historic structure to its fullest potential with limited impact on the original fabric and design.

To see how AFG successfully implemented an innovative approach to Historic Preservation on the award-winning Sydney Yates Federal Building Exterior Restoration Project located on the National Mall in Washington, DC, click here:


Under funding from the Great American Outdoors Act, the National Park Service (NPS) has awarded AFG a contract to provide construction management services for upgrades and modernizations to the Independence National Historical Park's extensive heating infrastructure, including HVAC and commissioning upgrades to Independence Hall, where both the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution were signed in Philadelphia, PA.
