La Quercia Addition



Ahern provided fire protection installation services at the La Quercia meat processing facility in Norwalk, IA. The 5,210 square-foot expansion utilized Ahern’s prefabrication shop for the 52 sprinkler heads installed. Prefabricating the sprinklers in-house sped up the schedule and allowed Ahern’s team to finish ahead of schedule.
