Herndon, VA, September 19, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Noted woman-owned construction program management and relocation services firm AFG Group, Inc. was recently awarded a 2-year construction management contract for CM support services to the Sidney Yates Exterior Restoration Project in Washington, DC.
Listed on the National Historic Register, the Sidney Yates Federal Building is easily identified by its trademark red brick that spans over 208,000 GSF. It was the original home of the Bureau of Engraving & Printing, and has since housed many federal agencies over the past century. The U.S. Forest Service’s Headquarters are among its current occupants whom will remain in the building during the project’s duration. The Yates Building is 133 years-old and is prominently situated between the Washington Monument (attracting 800,000 tourists annually) and the National Holocaust Museum (30 million visitors annually).
AFG will provide all CM services for all exterior restoration preservation efforts working with GSA’s Project Manager and a Preservation Officer to restore the former glory of this historic 1800’s building. A sampling of the project’s scope of work includes: repointing and repairing masonry walls, metal capping of transom bars, perimeter gutter replacement, and repairs to moat railings.
“The Yates exterior modernization will be an exciting project fully utilizing both AFG’s expertise in Federal Building Construction Management and Historic Building Preservation,” remarked Project Executive and AFG Vice President, Paul M. Szmurlo, PE.
