Get To Know Us
MGPA is a leading specialist in PreK and K-12 architectural planning and design, with a rich history of collaboration with public school districts and private schools throughout California. Established in 1998, MGPA has the expertise and resources to tackle a wide range of challenges, from master plans, planning studies, and whole campus designs to modernizations and new building additions. No project is too large or too small.
The firm also excels in modular building design, which is particularly attractive to districts looking for cost-effective solutions to accommodate their growing facility reconfigurations and campus restructure projects. MGPA has worked with modular manufacturers to help develop both DSA pre-approved modular designs and customized modular solutions for individual district campuses, working closely with clients to develop the optimal solution for their unique facility needs.
As MGPA focuses on the K-12 education sector, its team members have extensive knowledge of the State and local agencies with jurisdiction over California school projects, and maintain excellent relationships with these entities. The firm is well-versed in expediting DSA approvals for its own design projects and routinely assists districts with close-out projects completed by other firms. MGPA is ready to guide clients through the entire process.
Our mission at MGPA is to specialize in designing innovative, efficient and sustainable learning environments for schools. We strive for excellence in educational design through the expertise of our team, and approach each project with flexibility and integrity. We are dedicated to evolving with the needs of our clients, and fostering a collaborative design process that empowers creative learning environments. We are committed to create spaces that not only educate but also enhance the well-being of the community.
The vision of MGPA is to be recognized as Southern California’s experts in educational design. Through our commitment to excellence, integrity, and sustainability, we will be the go-to firm for clients looking to build or renovate schools and educational facilities.
