Mission Statement

We want to be the trusted, outsourced team that HVAC controls contractors and engineering managers call for step one in every building automation project: accurate engineering and expert system design.

We provide design, programming, project support and design consulting to help our customers be nimble, resourceful and scalable in bringing the power of smart HVAC control systems to end users.

Positioning Statement

Automation Design Concepts is the answer to the ebb and flow of staffing automation engineers. Whether you’re looking to supplement your in-house team or outsource your engineering entirely, we’re ready to ramp up quickly and deliver professional packages on time, within budget, at fixed costs.

Our team is based in Pennsylvania, with clients and projects across the U.S. You’ll always be able to reach us, including our principals, for the updates and additional support you need to keep your automation projects running smoothly.

Who We Are...

Automation Design Concepts is a full service engineering design firm specializing in the building automation industry. We offer complete drawing packages, programming, graphics, project support, project take-offs and design consulting. Our team has a combined 24 years experience. We are a straight forward company with a commitment that every job, no matter how big or small, gets the same attention to detail and is held to the same quality standard that Automation Design Concepts has built a reputation for. The inception of ADC came in 2016 with the realization that there is a constant demand for a design service in the building automation industry. This developed in to a shared vision between co-founders Beau DeFiccio and Mike Martynuska about starting a business to fill this void. Beau had a background of 10 years in the BAS industry including working in the field for 4 years and working as a design engineer for 6 years, while Mike had a strong background of implementing and troubleshooting process controls in an industrial environment. Beau and Mike discussed the potential service offerings of ADC and agreed that a full service engineering design firm would be the best fit to help alleviate the in-rush of work experienced by controls contractors. Our team has a commitment to continually learn and adapt to help better serve our customers.
