During the preconstruction phase, AFG provided constructability reviews; prepared government cost estimates and prepared construction schedules. During the bidding phase, AFG guided the client in solicitation methods, responded to RFI's and provided bid analysis and award recommendations. During the construction phase, AFG provided support as the Project Manager, Assistant Project Manager, General Superintendent, Superintendent, Mechanical Inspector, Electrical Inspector, Administrative Staff, Contract Engineer and Elevator Inspector. AFG performed construction surveillance and quality control inspections, construction management, project document control, scheduling and cost control, negotiated change orders, processed payments, and ensured compliance with NYC building code, and other services.
Project Scope: Renovations to over 3,500 residential units, within 27 separate low-rise buildings, as well as in 8 high-rise buildings, which required more substantial renovations. The total of number of effected buildings is 35. All of the work was divided into 4 phases to reduce the impact of construction on the occupants in the adjacent buildings and in the complex. Effective project sequencing was critical. Many of the tenants remained within the complex, in other units, during construction. AFG assisted in coordination of these relocations.
