"I like working at CCa because my name is on the door and that makes it easy for me to remember where I work"

Marcy Fields

"I feel the number of long term employees we have here at CCa exemplifies the kind of place it is to work (or it's because we are old and can't find employment elsewhere...) "

David Prickett

University of Southern California '79

"I completely enjoy mentoring our staff on becoming the best architects they can become."

Jamie C. Poladian

"I feel like I've learned more about the profession of architecture in one month at CCa than I did after 7 years of architectural design school. It's not just the type of work we do or the standards that we adhere to, but the people we work with every day who contribute most to the learning environment here."

Alex Jewell

"Cal Poly taught me many things, but there are so many more things that I need to learn about the profession. Working at CCa, I am presented with new challenges and experiences on a daily basis, which has allowed me to learn an incredible amount in the short time I have been here. "

Isaac Luevano

California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo '15

"Architecture grants you the access to new knowledge every day and through strategic design we see that knowledge come to life. At CCa, knowledge is the driving factor that pushes us to the limits in order to have a successful design that becomes a reality. "

Chris Paxton

"Being able to be a part of a project in all stages; seeing it go from the design phase to the construction phase really provides for a better understanding of Architecture."
