A Chesterfield construction company is building itself a new home.

G.A. & F.C. Wagman broke ground last month on a new Dinwiddie County office at Simpson Road and 7th Avenue near Petersburg. The company plans to relocate its current office on Nena Grove Lane in Chester to the new 14,000-square-foot building upon its completion early next year.

Wagman Cos. spokeswoman Lisa Wagman Glezer declined to disclose the total cost of construction on the new building.

County records show the company paid $626,635 for the 25-acre parcel. A construction cost estimate Wagman submitted to Dinwiddie County put the price tag at about $1.4 million.

The firm is a division of Pennsylvania-based Wagman Cos. and specializes in heavy civil construction like bridges and highways. The new office project comes a year after Wagman acquired Chesterfield-based Key Construction.

Wagman Construction is the project’s general contractor, and Mula Architects of Pennsylvania handled the design. Locally-based Timmons Group was in charge of site work.
