KINGSTON >> The Board of Education has approved five contracts totaling $19.08 million as part of a $137.5 million renovation project at Kingston High School.
At a board meeting Wednesday, district officials said the latest bids approved were $3.79 million below estimates.
“If you combine that with the results of the field house bidding, which I think was $500,000 below … that would obviously sum to about $4.3 million,” said Allen Olsen, assistant superintendent for business. “That’s a good sign so far.”
• AFI Glass, at $2.05 million the only bidder for window and glazing work at the Salzmann Building. The estimate was $1.81 million.

KELLI D. INCORVAIA, CFO: BECOMES MAJORITY STAKEHOLDER AT AFI
Kelli D. Incorvaia, CFO of AFI Glass & Architectural Metal, Inc., became its majority stakeholder this month, in a move that makes AFI a certified Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE).
Kelli has long been hands-on at the company, and sees this move as both progressive and essential in the competitive marketplace.
“Our company has always been family-owned and forward thinking,” said Mrs. Incorvaia, “and being a certified WBE gives us an edge when bidding for jobs. But it’s also a validation of our 20-year record of hiring both women and minorities at AFI.
Since naming Mrs. Incorvaia as CFO, AFI has been named one of the Top 50 U.S. Glaziers by Glass Magazine, with sales increasing by 61% over the last year.
AFI has worked to be a leader in the industry, and progressive in its hiring practices. Says President Angelo Incorvaia, “We hire talent, regardless of gender or race. We want the best people, always.”
ANGELO INCORVAIA, PRESIDENT OF AFI: NAMED TO GLASS MAGAZINE’S “30 UNDER 40”
“We started small in 1992, but have grown to be nationally recognized, said Mr. Incorvaia. “We’ve been family-owned since the beginning, and I’m proud to run a successful business based on honesty, integrity, and family values.”
Glass Magazine describes Incorvaia as a man always ready to meet a challenge. His can-do attitude has taken AFI from a local shop to a multi-million dollar business.
