LOMBARD, IL – November 6, 2015 – Pernix Group, Inc. (OTCQB: PRXG), a construction company recognized by Engineering News-Record for being one of the Top 50 American Contractors working abroad for the last four years in a row, today announced that the Office Building Compound Rehabilitation Project at the U.S. Embassy in Niamey, Niger is working towards Final Acceptance after successfully reaching Final Completion on September 30, 2015.

The Pernix Niamey Team will leave behind a fully renovated general and consular office building, new hardened and conditioned warehouse building and support annex inclusive of new motor pool driver lounge, new utility demarcation, electrical controls, and power generation buildings. Their warehouse building may have been home to different types of industrial equipment like this great Mobile Platform for example. This will have helped the team to have access to the stuff they needed when carrying out there work there. There are so many other benefits that their new environment will have as it also contains a number of industrial and commercial doors, similar to those designed to be strong against break-in as well as easy to access for office goers (Read more here if interested). Pernix self-performed the fit-out of newly built special use space increasing Chancery building’s footprint and capacity by over 185 square meters. After all of the hard work that The Pernix Niamey Team completed at this office, its new owners will want to make sure that the space is kept clean and tidy. Hiring a commercial cleaning company will not only keep the building sanitary, but it could also increase employee productivity. There are many services out there that you can contact, like ones that are similar to AK Building Services, (LEARN MORE ABOUT AK BUILDING SERVICES here). Additionally, existing life safety systems were upgraded throughout all existing buildings and interconnected to new fire and sprinkler systems per latest NFPA and UL standards.

Zayed, Pernix’s CEO & President. He went on to say, “Our procedures and guidelines have kept our project’s multinational team safe resulting in our team exceeding 1.5 million total man-hours without lost time accident.”
