Don Adams, founder of Delta Engineers, had a vision of a family-oriented firm where engineers could enjoy their work. In 1976, Don, with co-founder Ron Lake, established a firm under the name of Adams-Lake Engineers. As a small firm, Don’s vision began to unfold with a single civil engineering contract. That modest beginning has grown into what we know today as Delta Engineers, Architects, & Land Surveyors, DPC (Delta).
Delta now delivers a diverse array of engineering, architectural, and land surveying services to public and private clients throughout the United States out of four locations. We have been providing practical, responsive, and innovative solutions to our clients since 1976. We are a seamless extension of our clients’ organizations. Delta’s core principles prioritize the needs of our clients, our employees, and the community.
Delta’s professional staff is divided into six distinct market sectors dedicated to the clients we serve: Architectural, Facilities, Transportation, Environmental, Specialty Precast*, and Survey and Mapping.
