Fire Protection & Pipe Fabrication Services for Historic Buildings in the Madison Area

Ahern’s expert fire protection team was trusted with retrofitting this historic 100-year-old theater in Baraboo, WI with modern wet sprinkler and pre-action systems. Aesthetics were paramount in this installation, as the theater’s renovations maintained the architectural integrity throughout. Another challenge was installing the system high above the stage. Ahern’s safety team collaborated closely with the installers to assess hazards and plan for a safe completion.
