Value Delivered

Arden exceeded demanding deadlines by prefabricating all piping for the project offsite. Teams worked extended hours during the installation and commissioning phases of work to shave additional time off the schedule. Due in part to these efforts, the project was completed nearly 3 months ahead of target.
