About Us

Arden Engineering Constructors originated as a small general contracting firm in 1954 and has grown into the largest mechanical contractor in Rhode Island today. Our success is due to the dedication and expertise of our valuable and talented long-term employees who have provided countless successful projects for building owners, general contractors, and maintenance professionals. Over the years mechanical construction and service methodology has changed, but our core values of delivering high-quality services with integrity and commitment to customer satisfaction have remained the same.
