AFG Awarded GSA CM Contract for the $24.2M Pensacola Federal Courthouse Modernization

Mar 1, 2018 – Herndon, VA (PRWEB) – AFG Group, Inc. (AFG) has been recently awarded a contract on the $24.2M Pensacola Federal Courthouse Modernization Project from the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) to provide Construction Management Services.

The courthouse, located in downtown Pensacola, Florida is scheduled to undergo repair and alterations to fix water intrusion problems that have persisted since the building was constructed 20 years ago. The courthouse was vacated in 2015 amid concerns of poor indoor air quality.

Repair and alterations for the project include replacing the building’s facade and the standing seam metal roof system to prevent further water intrusion as well as repairing structural damage and abatement of mold from past water intrusions. The fire safety system and the building’s HVAC system will both be upgraded. The existing restrooms in the building will be renovated and modified to provide full access to individuals with physical disabilities. The grounds, approaches, and parking area will be repaired along with other upgrades to improve stormwater drainage.

The facility will service the Northern District of Florida to include five courtrooms and related chambers, the U.S. District Clerk, Pretrial Service and the Grand Jury. Additionally, there will be offices for U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., the Office of the U.S. Attorney, the U.S. Marshal Service and GSA.

The modernization of the U.S. District Courthouse is currently underway and completion is scheduled for Fall 2019.

“This marks the second win for AFG in just two months to provide CMa services on a GSA Courthouse project. We are proud of the expansion of AFG’s Courthouse portfolio in the Southeast region and we look forward to our continued relationship with GSA”

AFG’s CEO, Cheryl O’Connor
