We are a full service MEP engineering firm that enjoys teaming up with other architectural or construction consultants.  We also have a substantial amount of experience as being the prime consultant. Our projects and experience range from industrial, manufacturing, resorts, government, remodels, equipment and systems upgrades, mixed-use property, commercial, educational, and medical facilities.  By selecting our firm to fulfill your MEP engineering needs, you will be rewarded with several details that make us a unique choice: heavy principal involvement; small, local business; the flexibility to meet your needs; tech-savvy employees that cover all MEP services in house!


Adams traces its roots back to 1977 when founder Stan Adams started the firm as Adams and Associates, Inc.  As the firm grew, so did the scope of the firm and the services provided.  In 2018 we were excited to report that Adams expanded by opening our second office location in Phoenix, Arizona.  And in 2020 we announced expanding to a full service MEP engineering firm by offering Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing (MEP), and Fire Protection design, as well as Commissioning and Energy Modeling.


More than forty years have passed; with one name change, new principals, two office locations, and evolving to a full service MEP engineering firm – Adams remains one of the most trustworthy Arizona engineering firms serving 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!
