GSA James M. Hanley Federal Building and Courthouse Projects

The James M. Hanley Federal Building, originally completed in 1977, is located in downtown Syracuse, New York and occupies a full city block. The main building consists of a 15-story north tower and 13-story south tower joined by a windowless central core.

In fall of 2019, AFG was awarded a contract to provide Construction Quality Management services for the James M. Hanley Federal Building Elevator Modernization Project. Since then, our team has been awarded two additional contracts within the federal building, providing a range of services on alteration and renovation projects.

AFG has provided Construction Quality Management Services for GSA and Upstate NY Service Center to reconstruct the existing elevators in the James M. Hanley Federal Building. The initial project included the renovation of four passenger elevators and one Freight elevator within the building, including a series of refurbishment, replacement, ADA compliance installations, and upgrades to the related mechanical and life and safety systems. Our team has performed various construction management services under this project including existing conditions surveys, monitoring and inspecting construction for compliance with contract requirements, design review and RFI, maintaining record drawings, assisting in change order review, estimating, and close out processes.

Under separate  contracts, AFG has also provided Construction Quality Management support services for the installation of Physical Access Control Systems (PACS) and renovation of the 14th Floor of the Hanley Federal Building. Within the PACS project, AFG served as Construction Quality Management support for a scope including installation of card readers, wiring, and computer access systems to facilitate control of access to the building and various restricted areas within.

The 14th Floor Renovation project, which began construction in November 2020, will renovate office spaces for GSA staff within the building. The project will require existing conditions survey and site inspections as part of the Quality Assurance program led by AFG’s Construction Quality Manager on-site. AFG has already provided a constructability review of the revised furniture layout. This included deletion and addition of power and data outlets. AFG will be providing an Independent Government Estimate that the GSA will use to negotiate the cost with the contractor.
