About Us

Service Area

Serving the entire Santa Fe area and Los Alamos



Architectural Metal, Inc. has been in business since 1977. Recently changing from the name Southwest Metal Products, inc. we provide the architect, designer, contractor and homeowner with consistently high quality architectural sheet metal, and heating and air conditioning.


  1. Our consistent "can do" attitude has given us the opportunity to produce some of the finest sheet metal products available anywhere. We were established and continue to operate in Santa Fe, New Mexico, a city prized for its artisans. To have succeeded in this competitive atmosphere speaks volumes about the caliber of our staff and our commitment to excellence in all that we do.
  2. In addition to our "can do" attitude, AMI has always been a customer first based company. Every one of our jobs is centered around the requests and desires of our customers. This approach has been critical to the business's success in the production of fine sheet metal work, and customer-designed, high-efficient, very reliable and effective heating and air conditioning systems.

Architectural Metal, Inc. is proud to have been referenced in Retrofit Magazine's article "Two Projects Leverage New and Existing HVAC Equipment to Offer Optimal Returns":

"... the hotel's[The Rosewood Inn of the Anasazi] old condensing boiler sputtered with unreliable operations and offered only 76 percent energy efficiency, management needed a solution." AMI's solution to the problem, cited in the article, was creating a system with 3 high efficiency boilers, allowing flexibility and efficiency. Stephen Sanders, HVAC Department Manager, explains, "The boilers each modulate between 20 and 100 percent firing power and come online one at a time as needed." The article concludes that "Rated to operate for 25 years, the system's cost payback will be in 10 years, leaving 15 years of virtually free operation."
