What They’re Saying
Even more than their technical expertise, I have to bring attention to their exceptional customer services. I had the pleasure of working regularly with Rebecca and Debra, and found them engaging, innovative, and always professional. They listened carefully to our ideas, crafted them into working models, and made them a reality. All the while, they kept me grounded and helped me understand the myriad of rules and regulations surrounding new construction. With them I always felt knowledgeable and in the loop of information.
As the Superintendent of a small school district, StudioWC continually supported me as Facilities Manager. My first call was to Debi and Bob and they were always responsive, helpful, and informative... StudioWC is an outstanding architecture and engineering firm and I highly recommend them for any project -- large or small.
...I have had the opportunity to work with Bob and Debra during the planning, design, construction, and closeout of many of [Santee School] District's projects over the past seven years. The complexities of this program, as well as the day-to-day challenges were always met with professionalism and hard work by Bob, Debra, and their team. StudioWC have been great partners and I look forward to working with StudioWC again in the near future.
I can only recommend StudioWC 200%.
It is without reservation, and with great pleasure, that I recommend this outstanding firm to other organizations.
StudioWC will be an excellent selection to add to your team!
I have worked with both Debra Vaughan-Cleff and Robert Webb, and recognize [their] dedication and work ethic to [their] clients. I would be more than happy to be a reference....
Bob Webb’s architecture and construction expertise, and Debra Vaughan-Cleff’s project management, civil engineering, and funding expertise, are a perfect match for school design and construction. We have worked with StudioWC many successful projects.... Their latest project [for our District], Pepper Drive Learning Resource Center, is a beautiful educational space with a design that knocks your socks off and was within budget... As the Director of Facilities and Maintenance for Santee School District, I emphatically and highly recommend StudioWC.
Encinitas Union School District | Olivenhain Pioneer Elementary School Energy Upgrades
StudioWC provided architecture and engineering services for energy upgrades at Olivenhain Pioneer Elementary School at EUSD. The energy improvements included skylights in all rooms, revised lighting switching to A/B, extended canopy overhangs, replacement of all mechanical units, replacement of roofing with cool roofing, a rain water collection system, and a 172 kilowatt AC photovoltaic power system. The PVs are located in the parking lot and serve as shaded carports, as well as on hard court surfaces to provide shade in play/PE areas. The mechanical, lighting, and skylight upgrades reduced the utility loads by 25% and the PV is expected to provide 75% of the electrical demand.
