Thelma Center for the Arts


Fire Protection, HVAC & Plumbing Services for Performing Arts Centers in the Fond du Lac Area

Ahern installed a new HVAC system and replaced plumbing units for the new addition to the Thelma Center for the Arts in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin. During construction, plumbing layout issues arose, but Ahern changed the design to make new plans work. This didn’t delay the project, and the organization was able to move in on time. Additionally, Ahern’s sheet metal shop was utilized to complete 2,000 pounds of ductwork for the HVAC system to speed up installation and keep the project on track.
