Copeland Maritime Center

The Copeland Maritime Center is home to the Tall Ship of Delaware as well as exhibits telling the story of the rich history of the Kalmar Nyckel.

“This facility will certainly be a source of civic pride to the residents of the 7th Street peninsula area. Bancroft’s initiative, project understanding and expertise in construction management were instrumental in delivering this highly anticipated project while providing the necessary leadership to manage the project’s budget and schedule.”

Bancroft partnered with Bernardon to design and construct a brand-new, 21,360-SF ship maintenance and education building for the Kalmar Nyckel Foundation. The Copeland Maritime Center features classrooms, conference rooms, exhibit space, administrative space/offices, and a carpentry and finishing shop. Bancroft also constructed a new dock for the tall ship to dock at its new facility.
