About us

ADA - Abbey Design Associates

Pioneering and paving the way, Abbey Design Associates (ADA) are leading consultants in project management, refrigeration design, remote monitoring and software development. Founded in 2006 on an ethos of five fundamental pillars we are proud to be privately owned and truly independent. With no outsider influence from manufacturers and agencies, our clients rely on our trusted and trailblazing way of working that presents them with high quality results that meet the task in hand.

Collaborating with professional businesses and high street names in the retail sector, our project management and refrigeration design is commissioned by the likes of Morrisons, Co-op, Waitrose, Marks & Spencer and Sainsbury’s – just to name a few.

Each and every customer, whether that’s new or existing, we treat on a case by case basis and provide a high level of service that is tailored to your bespoke needs and wishes. Our personal yet professional approach at ADA is highly recommended within the industry because our clients are comfortable in the knowledge that when we take on a project, we do so from concept to completion taking into account all the little details. This attentive nature runs throughout all of our services. From basic support to full design and specification of future proofing systems and ‘out of the box’ thinking for all refrigeration needs.

Gloucester based

Based in Gloucester but fully mobile throughout the UK, and the facility to offer support across Europe, the founding ‘Five Pillars’ that helped establish Abbey Design Associates over a decade ago is a thread that runs through the team every day.

Ways of working:

We strongly believe in our “Five Pillars”


Think customer

Go the extra mile for clients by being friendly, listening to their needs, focus on what they want and serve an outcome that the customer desires.


Be passionate about our work

Insist on quality, encourage innovation and be proud of what we do each and every day.


Be one team

Support and show mutual respect to one another. Work together, participate, trust, encourage, share success and have fun.


Own your part in delivering results

Act with pace, be energetic, enthusiastic and decisive, take responsibility and be accountable, suggest a solution and be positive.


Be honest and confident, listen and learn

Strive to be the best, challenge and value contributions, celebrate success.

We pride ourselves on all of the above, as well as the successes and steps we have made to provide the best service whilst making a difference. That’s why Abbey Design Associates are advocates of being environmentally friendly, reducing our carbon footprint and fundraising for charity. We believe in providing support to others and in doing so have completed the Three Peaks Challenge, London to Paris and London to Amsterdam cycle rides, as well as other local initiatives to give something back and build community spirit for a brighter future.

Our knowledgeable, friendly and expert team are always happy to discuss your requirements and project plans no matter how big or small the task. From initiation planning to putting the development team to work, our experience and track-record of successful projects ensures that you’re in the best hands.
