A new generation approach shaped by decades of experience.

Innovators aren’t born. They don’t take shortcuts. They rely on the hard-earned perspective that comes from years of experience. They discover what’s truly new and what’s been tried but failed.

They break convention.

It’s the only way to transform an industry. It’s the only way to become active rather than reactive.

We’re committed to finding new ways to build and develop better, faster, for less.

We’re introducing innovative processes and assembling a network of forward-thinking subcontractors. We’re offering renters and homeowners greater value. We’re giving partners and associates the most for their investment.

“Pac West’s innovative approach helped us maximize the efficiency of our Big House product, which is now one of our most successful multi-family designs.”

A glance at our history;
a glimpse into the future.

In 1991, William Pennington formed what would become Pacific West Companies.

As business increased, PacWest added structural engineer Mike Daniels and construction manager Bret Dowty, two of the top professionals in multi-family building.

The company initially focused on building custom homes, large-scale single-family subdivisions, commercial projects, and small niche apartment buildings in Nevada and California.

Over time, each partner discovered that their true passion was — and still is — building high-density projects.

In 29 years of business, Pacific West has always taken a long-term approach to doing business. We continue to pour our efforts into refining the construction process, as well as project management technology, anything that helps keep us — and our clients — steps ahead of the competition.

It’s a nimble, efficient, yet powerful approach that propelled us into becoming the country’s sixth highest-grossing multi-family builder/developer. Now, it’s helping us anticipate market changes and allowing us to deliver industry-leading projects that offer more livable space per square foot.


It’s not so much a tagline as it is a description. It’s the only description that accurately fits Pacific West Companies.

We don’t feel obligated to perform “like no one else.” It comes naturally. It’s the way we’ve been doing things since 1991, and continues to be so as we take construction efficiency to a new level.

What does that mean for clients? A unique, superior product delivered in less time, for less money, than from any other multi-family GC.
