Ahern was recently selected by The Opus Group to design and install fire protection systems for Gavilon’s new Omaha world headquarters. Their new 233,342 square-foot facility includes three floors of office space that sit atop a two-story parking structure. Ahern provided alternative fire protection system options for the electrical and computer rooms that will be both cost effective and code compliant. Dry systems will protect the parking structure, with standard wet systems in the remaining office space. Ahern is utilizing 3D design coordination with the other trades on site to eliminate system interferences and streamline the project. On-site work began in mid-April, with completion slated for December.

Whether a partner on new construction/retrofit projects, servicing existing facilities, or providing prefabricated piping; Ahern consistently reduces its clients’ risk for projects and service requests of all sizes. With approximately 950 employees specializing in pipe fabrication, mechanical, and fire protection contracting, we offer measurable expertise and experience.  Over 80% of all Ahern employees hold professional certifications, more than half of their staff carries 10+ years of industry experience, and 66% of all employees hold one or more college degrees.
