Profile

McParlane & Associates, Inc. is headquartered in San Diego, CA and directed by three Principals; Paul McParlane, John McGee, and Douglas Isaaks who all share a common commitment to our core values of service and quality.  Since our founding in 1990, we have built a reputation for exceptional, precise service in extremely time-sensitive environments which led to our Orange County expansion managed by Christopher Tindall and subsequent licensures in over 10 states.

 

Our team brings a wealth of skills, values, and expertise to each project with our unique approach that draws on over 30 years of experience.  Principal level involvement helps ensure the best qualified individuals are integrated into the design process ensuring responsive, high-quality engineering.

 

Dedication, collaboration, and quality are the cornerstones that have allowed MPA to enjoy lasting relationships with our clients, and we welcome all new clients with the same committed philosophy.

Mission statement

Our mission is to exceed client expectations utilizing our experience and expertise to offer technically advanced and cost-effective design solutions.  We communicate clearly and concisely with both clients and colleagues.  We provide accurate engineering as well as client satisfaction through strict document control.  Our work environment promotes personal growth through education and accountability.

APPROACH

Each project is overseen by one of our Principals from the initial design phase to project completion.  Our goal as we enter into design commencement is to understand the owner’s requirements and budget constraints to seek out optimum value for both initial and long-term investment.  Value, quality, sustainability, functionality and life expectancy are the key components to determine optimal solutions that will best meet the needs of our clients.

 

Our proactive approach and hands on philosophy means that our most senior engineers are directly involved in all aspects of the project including hands-on construction support.  We work closely with the architectural team to ensure our designs seamlessly integrate and complement the building architecture.  We provide sophisticated and aesthetically pleasing solutions to difficult challenges while maintaining a superior level of flexibility to accommodate potential modifications in the future.
