Adam's Design Associates

Adam's Design Associates
Formed in September 1991 as a de-merger of the North Wales design team from a National Consultancy. 

The Hastings office opened shortly after in October 1993 and since its formation has worked on residential, educational, commercial and industrial projects. 

The combined skills within the practice cover the range of services expected from a modern consultancy and our design team are able to support Clients throughout all the stages of a project from feasibility to negotiation of final accounts. 

Despite the recent recessions the Company has seen a steady increase in our work within the Industrial sector, the maintenance and protection of historic buildings and the Rail Sector.
