It is my pleasure to write this letter of recommendation for the Sacramento Design Group (SDG). I own a 25 bed Residential Care Facility in Midtown Sacramento and needed someone with expertise in getting me the required building and planning permits at the City of Sacramento planning offices. I made one phone call to SDG and had a meeting with them the next day. At that meeting I hired them on the spot (due to deadlines I had to meet). I was nervous at first but within a week or two I was very confident that the work was getting done in a timely and correct fashion. The work was completed on time, permits issued and the cost did not exceed what was quoted. I am happy to provide a reference to anyone who is deciding to do work with SDG.


Ken Knutson


I am writing this letter as a matter of recommendation for the Sacramento Design Group. SDG  worked closely with Sylvania Lighting Services on a recent design/build project for PG&E.  They provided a variety of blueprints, Title 24 calculations, and building permit management for us under some heavy time constraints.
SDG performed professionally and helped us meet the customer goals.  In many cases they were given little to work with, and asked to develop complete plot plans and layouts without any existing drawings or materials to work from.  They proved to be innovative and responsive. If your business has design needs we would not hesitate to recommend them.

Mike & Ophelia F.  Sacramento CA 

Thank you Sacramento Design Group for assisting us with our renovation project.  Your preparation of construction plans and your facilitation of the permit process got our project off to a good start.  With your assistance, that phase of the project was much easier and completed much sooner then we expected.  We found your company and the subcontractors you referred to us easy to work with, and are pleased both with the quality of work done as well as the cost.  Thanks again for your help.


Sacramento Design Group,

I would like to thank you and your company for the work you did to make our family room addition become a reality. After giving you our ideas, desires and wants, your staff did an excellent job drawing up the blueprints needed for the building permit. I like the idea of your company doing all the leg work pulling all the permits necessary. It was money well spent. I’ve attached some pictures of our completed addition. All inspections were completed with no errors. Except for the foundation and texturing of the walls, all the work was done by my wife Charlene and me. We had a great time doing this project. Now we’ll sit back and enjoy it. Should I decide to build again, I’ll give you a call. Thanks again to yourself and your staff.


Jeff & Charlene E.
