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.

Adams is an approved RISQS supplier of design services within the Rail Industry and acts as design partners on behalf of a number of Contractors both within and outside various framework agreements.  Our projects include new mainline stations at Hastings and Dartford; a new Boots Store on platforms 11 & 12 at Waterloo Station; Station upgrades and remodeling schemes such as Southampton central station and numerous platform and canopy refurbishment projects across the South and South East of the Country.

Following our initial involvement with MegaTech on their trial site at Sanderstead in 2010 Adams Design associates have been involved in every MegaTech project since, undertaking a minimum of the platform Form B design.  To date, Adams have designed, in excess, of 11km of MegaTech’s EPS modular platform system which has been installed throughout the UK rail network.
