ANF Group Celebrates Their 30 Year Anniversary

When it comes to orchestrating the delicate and complex process of healthcare and research facility construction, ANF Group’s reputation is soaring as quickly as its prestigious client base. As they join long-time client, Memorial Healthcare System, to celebrate the latest triumph – the world-class $80-million Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital opening in Hollywood, Florida – it’s just another sign of bigger things to come for this 30-year home-grown success story.
Although the company has completed projects for hundreds of commercial clients over the years, including UPS, Goodyear, Pizza Hut, plus many local government municipalities, It’s here in South Florida, home to busy healthcare facilities, a large senior demographic, fast-growth population and broad multicultural base, that ANF Group found its strongest niche: meeting the highly specialized needs of healthcare and educational facility construction.
To date, the firm has worked with Memorial, HCA, Broward Health, Cleveland Clinic and Nova Southeastern University, among others, completing more than 150 projects for Memorial Healthcare System alone.
ANF Group has a strict business practice: The firm will not accept any sizeable project unless it can guarantee that one of the three principals will be able to spend a significant amount of their own time on the job site.

President Alberto Fernandez explains the rationale: “At many firms, executives are actively involved during planning stages, then hand the day-to-day construction execution to field teams. But if issues come up, the client can lose days or weeks waiting around while an executive is brought back in to assess the problem or give their approval. With ANF Group, full leadership authority is right onsite. We’re sitting at the same table with the owner, subcontractors, architects and designers, making fast decisions to meet the best interests of the client,” he says.
ANF Group principals have quietly and methodically grown their business one delighted client at a time with on-time, on-budget execution. They’ve strengthened their employee talent base, rewarding high-energy, dedicated performers with increased leadership, training and growth opportunities. In turn, employees feel a strong allegiance to the firm and its clients.
The firm is a big supporter of national and local community causes … not just financially, but as enthusiastic participants. Every employee is encouraged to find worthy opportunities to dedicate time and resources. ANF Group is the title sponsor of the very successful Tour De Broward which in the last two years has raised $500,000 for the Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital Foundation. The company also attends activities to support the United Way of Broward, Hispanic Unity of Florida, American Diabetes Association, and Boys and Girls Club as well as several South Florida-based hospital, pediatric, critical care and education causes. They’ve also created their own charitable effort called Peaceful Haven Ranch Group Home located in Cooper City.
“We’re so appreciative to our clients for being such strong supporters of local business … they helped us to achieve the success we enjoy today,” says Fernandez. “We’re equally grateful to be in a position where we can return the good fortune to the South Florida community we love: where we’ve lived and worked all these years.”
ANF Group’s journey is a culmination of family, commitment to their community, integrity, trust and a good business ethic. Their philosophies will help them to improve in any market condition. The Principals at ANF Group and the team they have assembled continues to work hard to meet the needs of their community, progress with the expectations of the construction industry and produce the quality of work they have built their reputation on.
