We are very proud to receive a Build Arizona Award from the Arizona Chapter Associated General Contractors (AGC).
Achen-Gardner Construction’s Northsight Boulevard Extension Project won a 2014 Build Arizona Award in the Public Reconstruction, CMAR – Municipal Utilities Projects Less Than $10 Million category. Members of the project team accepted the award during the AGC Annual Awards Banquet at the Arizona Biltmore Resort & Spa in Phoenix on April 17.
The Northsight Boulevard Extension Project improved Northsight Boulevard from just east of Hayden Road to Frank Lloyd Wright Boulevard and Hayden Road from just south of Northsight Boulevard to 500 LF north of Northsight Boulevard. Formerly a private street between Hayden Road and Frank Lloyd Wright Boulevard, Northsight Boulevard became a public roadway upon completion of the improvements. The improvements also reconstructed the formerly signalized intersection of Hayden Road and Northsight Boulevard to a multi-lane Roundabout to improve traffic flows and mitigate back-ups. The City of Scottsdale was the project owner, Achen-Gardner Construction was the Construction Manager at Risk/General Contractor, and Kimley-Horn and Associates was the lead design engineer.
The prestigious Build Arizona Awards are bestowed annually on the greatest construction projects in Arizona. Award winners are judged on their state-of-the-art advancement in construction, project management, client services, optimum safety records, community contributions, environmental sensitivities and how well they meet the challenges of a difficult job, while striving to build a quality project on time and within budget.
