Services

Civil Engineering

March Adams offers a full range of civil engineering services including many aspects of site development from preliminary feasibility studies to design development through final construction documents. Our design services include the preparation and permitting of site infrastructure documents. This documentation includes site layout, grading, storm drainage, storm water management and treatment, sediment and erosion control, site utilities along with both sanitary sewer and water distribution system extensions. Our staff believes that the best site infrastructure design solutions should go unnoticed. We strive to provide low impact design solutions that are both cost effective and require minimal maintenance. This process begins while working with other disciplines and regulatory agencies in the earliest design stages and establishing open channels of communication.

Structural Engineering

March Adams provides structural engineering services for commercial, institutional and industrial facilities. Our staff uses advanced engineering design tools such as ENERCALC and RISA 3d and Revit.

March Adams has 114 years of combined experience in all areas of construction materials, to include concrete, steel, masonry, timber and pre-cast.

In addition to providing design services for new construction, the company also analyzes existing facilities that require re-engineering or modernization. March Adams is pleased to have an industrial structural department that provides services for existing industrial plants requiring process upgrades and rehabilitation work. These design services include building and structural modifications for new equipment supports and mezzanines as well as repurposing existing structures.

INDUSTRIAL SERVICES

Equipment Design Development

We specialize in custom machine/equipment design, development and fabrication to meet the industry’s needs where standard equipment does not meet the specifications. The custom machinery may be high speed and fully automated for high volume production lines or manually operated, low production units for new product evaluation or prototyping. We have designed and developed equipment for various industries such as food, fibers, paper and foam, automotive, steel fabricators, material recycling and/or product sampling for quality control.

Process Design

Our process design experiences extend from chemical industries to food process and handling, piping and pumping systems to plant layout, material flow and process safety. In addition, we specialize in abatement and scrubber systems to meet all codes and standards. Our process experiences also include pneumatic product conveying, steam heating systems, chill water cooling systems and process filtering systems.

Piping System Design

We have experience in many types of piping systems conveying both gases and liquids.  Our staff is knowledgeable in the application of local, state and federal codes regarding the design of plumbing/piping systems supporting institutional and commercial facilities.

Instrumentation/Controls Design

Our staff understands the importance of instrumentation and controls in today’s advanced systems. From energy management systems to complex DCS and PLC systems, March Adams has the specialized expertise necessary to implement control solutions, develop software programming or solve problems in existing systems.
