Sandra Gramley, AIA, NCARB, LEEDap BD+C, was recently named as one of Seven Women chosen as San Diego Business Journal’s Top Women in Construction and Design.
Ms. Gramley co-owns one of San Diego’s oldest architecture firms, Platt/Whitelaw Architects (PWA), and as one of the firm’s lead project architects, she plays an important part in developing and perpetuating PWA’s reputation as a sustainable design leader now, and over the 20 years she’s been with the firm.
Sandra serves the current American Institute of Architects (AIA) San Diego president. In this role, Sandra is helping create the Center for Design, the AIA’s effort to create a gathering space, located in downtown San Diego’s Civic Center, that celebrates architectural design and designers and engages the general public.
A champion of accommodating people from all walks of life, many of Sandra’s recent projects at Platt/Whitelaw involve designing public spaces. Over the past year, these include the award-winning Cesar Solis Community Park in San Diego’s Ocean View neighborhood, modernization improvements for public school campuses, and a Therapeutic Recreation and Agewell Services Recreation Center for the City of San Diego, the first of its kind on the west coast.
