Fire Protection Retrofit Installations for Retirement Homes in the Omaha Area

Ahern finished its work on time and within budget when working on the New Cassel Retirement Center. This 21,750 square foot retirement home is located in Omaha, NE. Ahern's job was to replace existing branch piping and dry pendant sprinkler heads in the existing attic. In addition, the field crew who averaged 12 years of industry experience needed to re-work existing piping that was not installed properly by another contractor. Working in an existing attic in a care home that is currently in use has several challenges - tenants, protecting existing finishes, working with the maintenance personnel, etc. Ahern was able to work through these challenges and complete the job safely.
