Figge Art Museum


Fire Protection Installation Services for Museums in the Quad Cities

Despite several challenges and an aggressive deadline, Ahern completed its work one month ahead of schedule at the Figge Art Museum. Located in Davenport, Iowa, this 70,000 square-foot museum was designed by a London architecture firm. The firm requested the sprinklers be concealed as much as possible. With a seven-hour time difference, Ahern held odd communication schedules in addition to its weekly progress meetings.
