Achen-Gardner Construction attended two great conferences in April: the AZ Water Association 92nd Annual Conference and Exhibition and the ACEC Arizona 68th Annual Conference on Roads and Streets.
AZ WATER CONFERENCE
Achen-Gardner was a Silver Sponsor and had a booth at the AZ Water Association 92nd Annual Conference and Exhibition on April 16-18th at the Phoenix Convention Center. We showcased recent projects, handed out fun and useful giveaways, and conducted a business card raffle every hour to give away some of our 30th Anniversary hats.

In addition to the fun in the exhibit hall, there were technical presentations about several of our recent projects:

Utilizing New Trenchless Technology for Water Line Rehabilitation: Primus Line Installation (City of Peoria)

ROADS AND STREETS CONFERENCE
Achen-Gardner was the closing reception sponsor at the ACEC Arizona 68th Annual Conference on Roads and Streets on April 17-19th at the Westin La Paloma Resort & Spa in Tucson. We provided free beer, assisted with vendor prize giveaways during the reception, and gave away some of our 30th Anniversary hats.
We also delivered a presentation about our Fiesta Tech Sewer Service and Lift Station CMAR project. This presentation highlighted how the Town of Gilbert (Owner), Achen-Gardner Construction (General Contractor), and Sunrise Engineering (Design Engineer) utilized the Construction Manager at Risk pre-construction process to identify associated risks and challenges and develop a best value plan to efficiently, safely, and cost effectively install the new gravity sanitary sewer utilizing the Horizontal Directional Drilling trenchless construction method.
