Achen-Gardner Construction was a sponsor, exhibitor, and several of our employees attended the Arizona Chapter APWA Statewide Conference on August 7-9th at the El Conquistador Tucson. We were a Premium Sponsor, Public Agency Sponsor, and Friday Prize Drawing Sponsor and handed out fun and useful giveaways at our booth. We also participated in several technical presentations about our recent projects: the Fiesta Tech Sewer Service and Lift Station CMAR (Town of Gilbert) and the Twin Peaks-Blue Bonnet Road Gravity Sewer DB project, and we conducted a demonstration of pressure pipeline rehabilitation using Primus Line, with a discussion about our Primus Line Installation project for the City of Peoria.
Two of our projects also won Project of the Year Awards: the Downtown Chandler Canal Restoration (GMP 4 of our Downtown Chandler Infrastructure Improvements CMAR) (winning in the category of Historical Restoration/Preservation, Less Than $5 Million), and the Val Vista Transmission Main Rehabilitation CMAR project (winning in the category of Environment, $5 Million, But Less Than $25 Million). Congratulations to all of our team members and partners on these projects.
