The 2011 Ranking Arizona: The Best of Arizona Business magazine ranks Achen-Gardner #6 in the "Construction Companies: Heavy" category.
Notable projects in this year's Ranking Arizona Magazine were improvements in Chandler on Arizona Avenue (South Arizona Avenue Corridor Improvements) and Scottsdale on Pima Road (Pima Road Improvements - Phase 3).
Ranking Arizona is based purely on voter's opinions. Participants vote based on quality of product, service and who they would recommend doing business with. The responses are then assembled and ”ranked” according to their total number of votes. Ranking Arizona Magazine is published annually and consists of controlled mailed distribution to primarily upper management executives, presidents, principals and small business owners.
