Client Testimonials

“Hubbard Merrell was just the team we needed for our last zip line project. Not only do they know the ins-and-outs of zip lines and their associated equipment, they also have a mastery of the applicable federal and state regulations. When we have a challenging job with challenging regulatory requirements, teaming up with Hubbard Merrell is an easy and smart decision. We thank them for always being professional, pleasant, and punctual. We look forward to working with them again in the future!”

“At Flagstaff Extreme, we try to use local business expertise. Flagstaff Extreme is located in the same City as Hubbard Merrell and recently we expanded our offering to include 3 adventure zip courses at the largest County Park in Arizona.  Through collaboration between our team, Hubbard Merrell, and the County, we were able to improve upon the process we originally experienced with our initial installation in 2011. When we engaged Hubbard Merrell and specifically Micah Henderson and her team to provide the necessary engineering details and documentation, they delivered within a tight budget. The build was completed ahead of schedule and the team at Hubbard Merrell was able to complete their final inspection in a timely manner, allowing us to get our final approvals from the County and open to the Public.  We appreciate the flexibility and communication that is somewhat rare in this day and age.”

Their depth of expertise in the adventure industry sets them apart from other engineering firms I have worked with in the past. The Hubbard Merrell team effectively translated our goals and desired outcomes into a specific structural design. They serve as a bridge between the traditional spirit of Adventure Programming and the increasingly complex world of challenge course standards. Their attention to detail and ability to consult on industry specific issues has been an asset to Project Adventure and my work as the installation service director.”
