Achen-Gardner is proud to have been a sponsor and vendor at the inaugural Southern Arizona Construction Career Days event on November 13-14 at the Tucson Rodeo Grounds.
This Arizona Transportation Builders Association (ATB) event provided more than 700 high school students the opportunity to explore educational and career paths in the Transportation, Structural, Mining, Engineering, and Building industries. Students networked with 34 vendors in attendance to learn more about their area of expertise, as well as get hands-on experience with equipment and construction techniques.
The event was divided into four sections representing the disciplines of Engineering, Horizontal Construction, Vertical Construction, and Mining. On both days, students had the chance to visit each of the four discipline areas for 45 minutes at a time. Lunch was provided in the main arena and was accompanied by presentations about construction careers. After lunch students had another opportunity to visit vendors for more information.
Achen-Gardner representatives enjoyed the opportunity to connect with interested students at our booth. We passed out fun Achen-Gardner swag and handouts with information about our company. Our booth also featured a slideshow of images and information about some of our signature projects.
