– Greeley, University of Northern Colorado, Kepner Hall –

Kepner Hall was the first building to receive the fire alarm upgrade. It was originally built in 1912. This project included plaster walls over brick and decorative Roman inspired plaster detail in the center lobby.  When the West and East wings were completed in 1922 and 1923, respectively, they were built in the same fashion and materials as the central wing.  The 3 story, 70,930 square foot building presented many challenges. This  included a request for our team to find an artisan plaster subcontractor in order to ensure that the repair of the existing plaster would seamlessly blend in with the existing finishes.

The entire fire alarm system was replaced. It was brought on line on August 12, 2015 concurrently with a new fire sprinkler system that was also installed in Kepner Hall.  The 4 month project was successful due to the cooperation of Mountain Alarm and Simplex Grinnell. We worked together to create a successful project. Management and direction of the DS Constructors, LLC project team resulted in successful upgrade of technology for the university.
