Firm Profile

Founded in 1997, The Vernal Group has served numerous clients in the Central Valley and throughout California and other states. We have a strong commitment toward the improvement of the communities in which we live. A tribute to our performance is the number of repeat clients we continue to serve.

The firm’s practice includes architecture, interior design, planning and sustainability consulting. We have a strong interest, knowledge and experience in new construction, adaptive re-use, historical preservation, rehabilitation and neighborhood revitalization. The Vernal Group’s team approach, integrating the strengths and experience of staff and consultants alike, produces designs that work as a cohesive whole. We commonly utilize 3D modeling, Building Information Modeling and graphic renderings internally as a design tool, while ensuring that the client, and often the public, can suitably visualize the design. Our firm is uniquely qualified to provide a great variety of architectural services from large commercial to small residential projects including projects requiring approval from the Division of the State Architect for California.

Our design philosophy is to go beyond the particular needs of the client and ensure that our projects enhance the built environment within their neighborhoods. This includes quality aesthetic design, barrier-free accessibility and sustainable design. We have extensive experience with historic preservation, enthusiastically working to maintain or renew buildings and sites of cultural significance. We promote the development of under-served and neglected communities. Our own office is an example of our philosophy which resulted in a professional office that was slated for demolition and saved by our efforts to preserve quality built structures that many deem obsolete or blight inducing. 

A large portion of our work is donated in realization that if our communities are healthy, we all benefit. As architects, we appreciate beauty and great design.  We also promote strong communities beyond architecture, extending throughout our society as a whole.
