SCA Design, LLC, founded in 1995 by Sheldon Colen, is a certified Nevada Local Emerging Small Business (ESB) specializing in architectural and design services, including but not limited to concept design, remodel, re-design, renderings, master planning, special projects, tenant improvements, commercial projects, project management and residential/multi-family.

The company is licensed in the State of Nevada and is headquartered in Henderson, Nevada. The company is also licensed to do business in the States of Utah, Arizona, and Idaho. The company’s founder, Sheldon Colen, and his team of highly specialized experts, including the architects, technical staff and administrative staff continues to solidify the company’s well-earned reputation as the go-to company for architectural and design services. With over 70 years of combined expertise, between Sheldon and his business partner, their team brings to bear unsurpassed experience and design expertise to achieve his customers’ desired outcomes.

Teaming with a qualified Architect

SCA Design can be considered as a source of choice for any prime contractor, joint venture (JV) or government customer seeking architectural and design services or teaming endeavor. As a result of Sheldon’s and his team’s relentless commitment to delivering value-centric, on-time services, coupled with best value offerings, the company was awarded a subcontract resulting from a meeting of the minds to provide design services to Atherton Construction and Arriola, Joint Venture (JV) as the architect of record for a project to design and replace the existing split heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system with a single unit at Area 1, Nellis Air Force Base (AFB).

The company’s Nevada business continues to play an important role in the revitalization of Nevada’s economy by winning a first-tier subcontract with a federal government prime contractor and contributing to job sustainment and/or growth. Based on the award of the subcontract, the company was able to retain 13 full-time jobs.


The Nevada PTAC has been and continues to be an invaluable partner in the success of the company. The company has directly benefited from its partnership with the Nevada PTAC by receiving additional opportunities for networking and the promotion of the company. In addition to the Nevada PTAC’s bidmatch services that provides access to numerous potential contracting opportunities, Government Contracts Advisor John Rice has provided and continually provides sage contracting advice, on-time assistance, actionable counseling, and client follow-up services that have proven beneficial to the success of the company. For example, John provided solicitation-driven, on-time and actionable counseling to help the company with the solicitation review and navigate the subcontracting aspects, including the “Privity of Contract” doctrine applicable to the U.S. Air Force and its prime contractor and its non-applicability to a subcontract pursuant to a sole source, Request for Proposal (RFP) solicitation for a design/build project at Nellis AFB.

We congratulate Sheldon and SCA Design on their achievement, and we wish them continued success in the future.
