How Ahern Prefabricated and Installed Fire Protection for a 464,642 Sq. Ft. Outlet Mall

Paragon Outlet Mall in Eagan, Minnesota – the largest retail development in the state - worked closely with our Twin Cities office to fabricate and install a fire sprinkler system to protect 95 of its retail stores. With each tenant requiring unique and space specific needs, Ahern was challenged to fabricate sprinkler piping and weld fittings that met the needs of each store. With 11 sprinkler fitters on site at a time, Ahern was able to install 43,434 feet of steel piping and 4,267 weld fittings in 2.5 short months.

The Ahern Advantage: One Stop For Fire Protection

With prefabrication and fire protection services all under one roof, clients can rely on Ahern from project conception to completion. Our experienced pipe fitters are experts when it comes to designing sprinkler systems for our customers, making it possible to get the job done right and on-time.

For this project, Ahern’s design was approved on the first submission, requiring no warranty rework following completion.  Senior tenant coordinator at Paragon Outlet Partners, LLC, Brenda Sliker, was impressed by how smoothly the project ran despite the distinctive needs of each tenants sprinkler systems. She stated, “We did not receive one phone call from the tenant contractors with any issues regarding their space. This is unprecedented in our industry.”
