AFG awarded McMahon Federal Courthouse Fire Alarm Replacement in Bridgeport, CT

GSA awards AFG a CM and Cx contract for McMahon Federal Building and US Courthouse Fire Alarm Replacement in Bridgeport, CT

GSA recently awarded AFG a contract to provide Construction Management services at the Brien McMahon Federal Building and US Courthouse Fire Alarm Project in Bridgeport, CT. This project will be updating the antiquated fire alarm system with a state-of-the-art intelligent analogue multiplex system which includes a voice evacuation fire alarm and emergency communication capabilities.

Originally constructed in 1967, this steel-frame structure contains four above-grade stories and a basement. Construction in 1991 added an annex which houses two additional courtrooms. In addition to the US Courts, this building also houses offices of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Internal Revenue Service, US Environmental Protection Agency, US Attorney’s Office, and US Department of Labor.

AFG’s team, led by Project Director Frank Jasper, CCM will be providing both Construction Management and Commissioning services to assist the GSA with oversight, inspection, coordination and closeout procedures associated with replacing the existing fire alarm system located in the McMahon Federal Building and US Courthouse. Additionally, AFG will be supporting with design, construction Quality Assurance, Integrated Master Project Schedule management, and project administration. This project is expected to reach substantial completion in Spring 2022.
