Our clients are usually Architects, Contractors, and Building Owners.  We are a full service mechanical engineering firm so we can work as a prime consultant.  In fact, we do have many on call contracts for just that.  We also partner with various firms from the southwest and our projects range from industrial, manufacturing, resorts, government, remodels, equipment and systems upgrades, mixed use property, commercial, educational and medical facilities.  By selecting our firm for your mechanical or fire protection engineering services, you will be rewarded with several facts that make us a unique choice: heavy principal involvement; small, local business; flexibility to meet your needs; tech savvy employees and we cover all HVAC services in house!


Adams traces its roots back to 1977 when founder Stan Adams started the firm as Adams and Associates, Inc. and went into business for himself.  As the firm grew, so did the scope of the firm and the services provided.  And in 2018 we are excited to report that Adams has expanded!  We opened our second office location in Phoenix, Arizona.


More than forty years have passed; with one name change, new principals, and two locations; Adams remains one of the most trustworthy mechanical engineering firms in Arizona.  Today Adams serves clients in Arizona, California, Nevada, New Mexico, and Texas!  Our proudest accomplishment is the work we’ve done and the relationships we’ve built with our clients and business partners.  Thank you to our clients, family and friends who have played a role in our success for so many fabulous years!  We look forward to working together for many more years to come!
