Flix Brewhouse


restaurant fire suppression systems Iowa

Flix Brewhouse in Des Moines, IA was getting a new look, which meant the restaurant/retail facility needed a new sprinkler system. Having to raise the roof on both sides of the strip mall for new theatres, the 77,000 square-foot facility posed a unique challenge in the retrofit logistics. Though there were multiple trades working simultaneously, Ahern came up with a scheduling solution to make sure the project was completed on time and the customer was pleased with the resolution.
