McKinley & Associates headquarters

We believe our strength lies in the quality of the people we employ. Our seasoned staff has an unsurpassed knowledge of the business and the dedication it takes to make each project a success. And we're structured for efficiency. Our architects, engineers and technicians are all in-house, creating optimum communication and collaboration, which results in outstanding service to our clients. In addition to architects and engineers, the firm also offers professional services in interior design, commissioning, LEED design (sustainable and energy efficient “green” design), and educational planning.

In its third decade of service, McKinley & Associates has shown continued growth in both revenue and number of design personnel. Our corporation is comprised of a professional staff of more than 30 persons, and is conveniently located in Wheeling, West Virginia, Charleston, West Virginia and Washington, Pennsylvania, which are within 500 miles of one-half the population of the United States.

The ever-expanding list of states we have worked in includes Utah, Minnesota, Illinois, Michigan, Kentucky, Ohio, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Maryland, South Carolina, and North Carolina.

Our Philosophy is to provide our clients with experienced leadership and innovative design expertise to accomplish the goals of their project. Function, economics and versatility, in addition to the development of strong aesthetic appeal, are crucial elements in our design process. We also believe that enhancement of the physical environment in which each individual lives and works should add significantly to the enjoyment of life. Our firm has dedicated our professional skills to attain these goals.


McKinley & Associates is now a 100% ESOP Company (Employee Stock Ownership Plan). From this, our employees now own 100% of our corporation.
