HISTORY

California Design West Architects was established in California in 1986 by the senior member of the firm, Mitchell A. McAllister. California Design West Architects is a full service architectural corporation specializing in educational facilities. Our experienced team of professionals has worked together on hundreds of educational projects. Our office is located at 2100 19th Street in Sacramento, California.

During the last thirty years, California Design West Architects has completed more than 580 K-12 projects totaling over $770 million dollars, all located in Northern California. This vast experience translates into beautifully designed, functional, energy efficient schools. Our extensive team experience also ensures that we get work done in a timely manner. Every project we undertake begins with a master plan analysis. This guarantees each project properly fits into the complete campus design and addresses current and future needs.

Our design capacity is best demonstrated by the finished product. We have received recognition for aesthetic, common sense design. The design of Black Diamond Middle School received the C.A.S.H. Award of Excellence and Deer Valley High School received an award of honor. We have also received two Chairman’s Awards from the California Energy Commission.

Our personal approach to projects is what brings clients back time after time. We can confidently say that every client we have worked with has returned to our firm for additional work.
