PHILADELPHIA, July 23, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- The AFG Group, Inc. (AFG) / U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) Team was honored to receive a 2018 Construction Management Association of America (CMAA) Project of the Year Award from the Association's Mid-Atlantic Chapter. The award recognizes AFG / GSA's outstanding construction management practices on the GSA Strawbridge Building Renovation and Relocation Project for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

AFG provided construction management services to GSA as well as design oversight, renovation management, and relocation management during the 1.5 year, $10.0M project at the historic Strawbridge Building in downtown Philadelphia, PA.

The project involved consolidating and relocating 320 HHS personnel from the 100,000 SF spaces of the Public Ledger Building into just two floors at the new building. The AFG / GSA team successfully rose to the challenge of managing the design for 12 HHS divisions, each with unique requirements, and overseeing an increasingly constrained construction timeframe while facing an inflexible delivery date.

While prioritizing project quality and safety, AFG and GSA ensured the project was completed on-time, with no change orders, no contractor-requested claims, and with no OSHA recordable accidents. The CMAA award, presented annually, recognizes CM services for projects in various categories. AFG's winning submission is categorized with Public Buildings Projects under $20M.

AFG proudly shares this award with the GSA Mid-Atlantic, Region 3 Team. This achievement was a team effort demonstrating the highly effective, successful working relationship between GSA and AFG. The Team was led by AFG's Lewis Ayers, CCM, Design Project Manager; Frank Jasper, CCM, Project Manager; Ann DiMiero, NCIDQ, Relocation Manager; and GSA's Helen Berger, Project Manager.

AFG is a woman-owned firm with over 25 years of business acumen, focused on multi-disciplined program, construction, and relocation management. For additional information, please visit
