Brien McMahon Federal Building and US Courthouse Fire Alarm Project
In the spring of 2021, AFG group was awarded a contract to provide Construction Management services at the Brien McMahon Federal Building and US Courthouse Fire Alarm Project in Bridgeport, CT. Originally constructed in 1967, this steel-frame structure contains four above-grade stories and a basement, with an annex constructed in 1991 to add 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 Attorneys Office, and US Department of Labor.
This design-build project focused on 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.
AFG provided 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 supported design, Construction Quality Assurance, Integrated Master Project Schedule management, and project administration.
