Anderson, Rowe & Buckley opened its doors for business in 1921 with a commitment to deliver far more than our clients expected. Today, the same dedication to hard work and quality results remains in every plumbing, HVAC and fire protection project we undertake. And the pride and respect you’d expect to find in a family owned and operated business is evident in every Anderson, Rowe & Buckley relationship, project and employee.

Our Dedication

The only constant in building is frequent change and managing this uncertainty is one of AR&B’s most valuable services. From manpower to materials, schedules to approvals, we ensure your project runs as smoothly as possible to make you as satisfied as possible.

Anderson, Rowe & Buckley’s design/build, design/assist and plan and specification capabilities add lasting and significant value to every project. And we pledge these three things to every job.

We do what we say we’re going to do, when we say we’re going to do it.

We deliver true worth and impressive ROI.

We promise a professional, hassle-free experience.

Full Service Design Build & Delivery

Deadlines. Cost controls. Regulations. Anderson, Rowe & Buckley understands the challenges facing today’s building and renovation projects. That’s why before we open CAD or break out the tools, we get to know our clients’ expectations so we’re all working toward the same goals. From concept to completion, we provide unparalleled value every step of the way.

Anderson, Rowe & Buckley offers the strong advantage of providing design/build, design/assist and plan and specification capabilities for plumbing, HVAC and fire protection projects. Few others in the Bay Area can claim the same. And it’s all under one roof right here in the City, meaning faster, more efficient job execution.

All of this might be impressive, but not nearly as much as what it means to you. By having a full-service facility so close to our projects, AR&B is able to offer two indispensable assets – speed and coordination. Our team of design engineers, project managers and construction experts, along with our shipping and receiving professionals work in sync to ensure your project is done to your specifications, on time and within budget. So you can rest assured everyone is on the same page from start to finish allowing you to concentrate on the big picture.

Our Vision

Enabling every AR&B job to be executed safely, on time and within budget, is a philosophy of respect that resonates throughout every one of our employees – from upper management to subcontractors. We believe in providing an open, honest working environment that rewards collaboration and respect. This empowers everyone to take ownership in his and her work and our clients reap the benefits.


We at Anderson, Rowe & Buckley are proud proponents of the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System™ that encourages and accelerates global adoption of sustainable green building and development practices through the creation and implementation of universally understood and accepted tools and performance criteria.

With several LEED-accredited professionals on staff, AR&B is the smart choice for your green-certified plumbing, HVAC and fire-protection projects. We’ve completed and continue to work on several LEED-certified projects throughout the Bay Area and pledge to exceed your environmental and mechanical contracting expectations on every single job.

LEED at a Glance

Developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), LEED is an internationally recognized green building certification system applied throughout the building lifecycle — design and construction, operations and maintenance, tenant fitout, and significant retrofit. It provides third-party verification that a building or community was designed and built using strategies aimed at improving performance across all the metrics that matter most: energy savings, water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction, improved indoor environmental quality, and stewardship of resources and sensitivity to their impacts.
