Adams supports this year’s Kidstruction and Canstruction Events

2017 Kidstruction and Canstruction events took place on Saturday, September 30, 2017.  Adams was a proud sponsor of Kidstruction and made a monetary donation to one of the Canstruction teams for this year’s event.



Kidstruction: 100 competing teams made up of 338 students from 19 Southern Arizona schools created structures made only of donated business cards, toothpicks and glue.   Adams team member Bill Damon volunteered as a Kidstruction Judge and Adams team member Jen Crane volunteered as the 2017 Kidstruction Chair.  Learn more about Kidstruction at:



Canstruction: Four teams built structures out of thousands of cans of donated food that will then be directed to the Community Food Bank after the event.



Congratulations to all the teams, judges, and volunteers for another successful event!  Structures from both Canstruction and Kidstruction are on display at the Park Place Mall until Sunday, October 8th, 2017.



Adams adds two new team members!

We are pleased to announce the September hiring of two new employees to the Adams Team.


Please help us welcome Bill Damon, P.E., LEED AP, Senior Mechanical Engineer (left image), and Ryan Harbuck, Junior Mechanical Engineer (right image).  Bill’s previous experience as a design consultant in California coupled with his recent sales engineering experience provides Adams with a fresh vision for mechanical prime HVAC replacements.  Ryan’s previous exposure to AutoCAD coupled with his recent mechanical engineering diploma from University of Texas, San Antonio has provided him a substantial head start in the consulting engineering field as a junior engineer.


Having these new team members will increase Adams design and commissioning capabilities, adding to the abilities and resources we have available to assist our clients.  We look forward to working with both Bill and Ryan and believe that they can make a significant, positive contribution to the success of Adams.

40th Anniversary!

Adams and Associates Engineers, PLLC (Adams) is pleased to announce our 40th anniversary in 2017.


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.  Forty years have passed; with one name change, new principals, and several office building locations later, Adams remains one of the most trustworthy mechanical engineering firms in Southern Arizona.  Today Adams serves clients in Arizona, California, Nevada, New Mexico, and we are expanding into Texas this year!  Our proudest accomplishment is the work we’ve done and the relationships we’ve built with our clients and business partners.


We look forward to enhancing the success of the firm, our employees and our clients.  Adams attributes a huge part of its success to its employees, many who have been here for more than 15 years.  We even have two employees who are celebrating their 30th work anniversary this May!


An anniversary logo has been designed to celebrate this occasion.  To wrap up 2017, an open house celebration for clients and friends will be announced later in the year.


We are grateful to the clients who supported us through the years and who continue to support our business.  Thank you to our clients, family and friends who have played a role in our success for 40 fabulous years!  We look forward to working together for many more years to come!
