Feb 25, 2016 – Herndon, VA – Prominent woman-owned construction program management and relocation management firm, AFG Group, Inc. (AFG), was recently awarded a construction management contract for CM support services to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, for the Robert C. Weaver Building Fire Alarm Replacement Project in Washington, DC.

Listed on the National Register of Historic Buildings, the Weaver Federal Building stands out as one of the most successful modern-era buildings in GSA’s inventory. In 1967, the 1,372,300 GSF, thirteen-story building was constructed as the headquarters of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). HUD still occupies the building today and is part of the city’s Southwest Urban Renewal Plan.

As the Construction Manager, AFG will oversee the $11M replacement of the outdated fire alarm system, including the removal of the existing system, and the installation of a new emergency communication system to facilitate occupant notification and/or evacuation in the Weaver Building during an emergency.

“The Weaver Building Fire Alarm Replacement Project will be a rewarding project combining both AFG’s expertise in Federal Building Construction Management and Historic Building Preservation”

Project Executive and AFG Vice President, Paul M. Szmurlo
