MW GOLDEN CONSTRUCTORS is completing life safety upgrades to the Central Classroom Building at the Auraria Campus
September 19, 2012
MW GOLDEN CONSTRUCTORS' work on the Auraria Campus includes the addition of fire sprinklers and other life safety upgrades to an existing three-story office and classroom building.
The sprinkler installation on the first floor was executed on a second shift to accommodate multiple contractors and trades in the same space and work day. An existing data/server room is being protected by a pre-action sprinkler system that insures the sprinklers cannot be accidentally activated without activation by redundant heat and smoke detectors.
MWGC coordinated daily after-hours work in professors’ offices with the owner’s moving company to ensure each office was available during normal business hours. Work proceeded during the summer months on a normal schedule; however, when students returned to class three weeks ago, work was moved to off-hours to minimize disruption to the learning environment.
