Commercial:  A.J. Adam Engineering provides mechanical, electrical, plumbing design services for both new construction and renovation projects for commercial facilities.  We produce Design-Build projects as well as traditional Design-Bid-Build projects.  We work closely with our clients to provide comfortable, energy-efficient designs that can be built on budget and on time.

Healthcare:  A.J. Adam Engineering has designed a series of hospital renovation projects, dealing with a complex variety of systems and utilities distribution networks.  We understand the challenges of renovating a healthcare facility while it continues to treat patients.  We work directly with our clients through the entire process of the project to optimize systems performance, minimize healthcare disruptions, and stay on budget and on time. 
Higher Education Institutions:  A.J. Adam Engineering has successfully worked with a variety of higher education institutions on central plant facilities upgrade projects, including heating hot water systems, chilled water systems, energy recovery modules, air handling units, and domestic hot water systems.  We understand the complexities of replacing central plant equipment in occupied buildings without interrupting services to the occupants.  A.J. Adam carefully analyzes actual building energy loads to determine the best design to provide energy-efficient and reliable solutions.
Retirement Communities:  A.J. Adam Engineering has provided a variety of mechanical, electrical, and plumbing engineering services for retirement communities from Massachusetts to Virginia, including analysis of existing equipment and operational problems, feasibility studies, facilities renovations, and replacement of major equipment systems to improve building performance and energy efficiency.
Laboratories:  A.J. Adam Engineering has designed a variety of laboratories, both new installations and renovations of existing facilities, for educational and research institutions as well as commercial clients.  We understand the complexities of laboratory design, and have experience in coordinating utility outages and construction phasing during renovations to minimize disruption to occupants.  A.J. Adam Engineering takes a holistic approach to laboratory design, analyzing all equipment selections to minimize overall construction costs while providing energy-efficient, robust systems.
Commissioning:  A.J. Adam Engineering offers full range of commissioning services.  Our services can be tailored to fulfill the requirements of LEED or the Baltimore City Green Building Standards (BCGBS).  We can either commission projects acting as a third party commissioning agent for LEED or BCGBS projects, or offer commissioning services as part of our construction administration services (CA).
