Ahern Wins Two BUILD Wisconsin Awards
Wednesday, September 04, 2019

Ahern is honored to be a winner of two BUILD Wisconsin Awards from the Associated General Contractors of Wisconsin (AGC). The company won in the Specialty Contractor category for work performed on the Landmark Oaks office building located in Madison, WI as well as the GOEX Clean Room in Janesville, WI.

Landmark Oaks is a five-story Class A office building that is over 110,000 square feet with an underground parking structure. Ahern completed the HVAC, fire protection, and controls. The project started as a core/shell with two floors of build out being added (1st and 3rd floor) later in the schedule. “J. F. Ahern Co. was an important partner in the Landmark Oaks project…Their input and knowledge at the beginning cleared the way for a smooth project. If any issues did arise during construction they were quick both onsite and in the office to make our team aware and work towards a solution,” says Jason Koziar, Senior Project Manager for Ideal Builders, Inc.

GOEX Corporation added a 5,600 square foot ISO Class 8 certified clean room to their existing manufacturing facility. Ahern provided the HVAC and fire protection on this project. Special engineering was needed to create a unique design that achieved ISO 8 certified air flows, but would keep heating and cooling loads minimal. Large ductwork measuring 120” and air handling units were installed, in addition to 501 sprinkler heads. The project had an aggressive schedule of just four months from start of construction to owner turnover.

J. F. Ahern Co. is a mechanical and fire protection contractor specializing in HVAC, Plumbing, Controls, Sprinkler, Extinguisher & Alarm and Fabrication for construction and service projects. Founded in 1880, the company has over 1,500 employees servicing commercial, industrial, and manufacturing customers across the United States.
