Mount Holly, New Jersey
Mount Holly Board of Fire Commissioners
GREYHAWK provided construction management services for renovations and a two-floor expansion of the Relief Fire Engine Company No. 1 in Mount Holly, N.J. Founded in July 1752, the company is the oldest active volunteer fire company in continuous service in the U.S. The site and building are listed on the New Jersey Register of Historic Places and the National Register of Historic Places. Facilities were over 100 years old and did not meet operational and safety standards as established by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). The project involved consolidating services from three facilities to the updated and expanded facility, which now houses both the operational and administrative portions of the fire service for Mount Holly Township.
The existing firehouse was renovated to provide training and community meeting space. Extensive coordination was undertaken with the State Historic Preservation Office to ensure renovations respected the historic structure. The expansion facility houses eight trucks, including a ladder truck, and provides administrative offices, dormitories, physical training space, and apparatus/equipment repair facilities. Mount Holly’s original wooden firehouse building and vintage apparatus appear on display inside the building as part of a firefighting history center.
GREYHAWK’s scope included development and management of the project budget and schedule, bid process management, and comprehensive on-site construction management.
