Ahern’s ability to meet deadlines made on-time occupancy possible for Putco’s 125,000 square-foot warehouse and distribution center in Des Moines, IA. Ahern installed 1,238 sprinkler heads in the prefabricated metal building that were all fed from an electric fire pump. To achieve proper deflector distance for the sprinkler system, the system was specially designed to run parallel to the roofing structure.
