AFG Group, with subcontractor Parsons and AFG Protégé firm VYD and Associates, will begin work immediately managing the $139M, 265,000 SF renovation for a new DHS headquarters. When funding becomes available, additional projects will include: a 375,000 SF Operation Center, a 759,000 SF FEMA Headquarters, and parking structure & infrastructure renovation projects. If all options are funded, these additional projects could result in over $15M in fees to the AFG Team. AFG’s Director of Programs/Construction Management Services, Paul Szmurlo, PE, will be the Firm’s Contract Executive overseeing the contract from predesign through post construction. Mr. Szmurlo will work with Andrew Shipman, CCM, LEED-AP, AFG’s Senior Project Manager/Director who will supervise the day-to-day on-site work.

Currently, the DHS headquarters consolidation is the largest federal project since construction of the Pentagon. All construction program phases are estimated to be from US$3 Billion to US$4 Billion.

“This will be the largest project in AFG’s portfolio. We welcome the opportunity to increase our capacity in providing our full range of construction management capabilities”
