Parallon Business Solutions

I am writing as a reference for Studio 8 and Matt Taylor for the continued excellence in workplace design and support over the last 2 years he has worked with Parallon Business Solutions.  Matt and his team have maintained a focus on what we as the client are looking for in work space design, always being conscious of cost impacts, timelines, and quality of work.

Studio 8 has truly worked as a partner with Parallon as we experience our growth, but helping proactively plan and design our work space in a manner that has met our workforce and leadership’s needs.  The size and customer focus allowed us the flexibility to react to changing work space needs on a very timely bases, and has always been responsive to our needs.  Matt and his team have taken an approach that has made them more than just a vendor, but a partner in our work space design and implementation project work.

I just wanted to take a brief minute to say how refreshing it has been to work with your organization and how rare it is to see designers that take the time to listen to a client’s desires, program, and then translate that in to solid working documents.  I appreciated your group’s relentless passion to meeting committed dates of production.  Design professionals that can attain creative designs and do so in a committed time frame are rare.  You guys were true team players in integrating contractor & subcontractor value engineering & combining components but yet still achieving the desired results.  Some of your staff were young but had a great understanding of the process and the professional confidence to defend and direct the design while keeping the newness of fresh eyes on the design of a corporate environment.  The relationship that you had with the codes department also revealed that they have a respect for your group and this relationship, in my opinion, helped expedite the receipt of the building permit.

It has been a real pleasure working with you, and I would not hesitate to recommend your service to any potential clients.

Franklin Police Headquarters

I am pleased  to write this letter of reference for Matthew Taylor.  You may be aware that the City of Franklin recently completed and occupied a new Police Headquarters.  Matt Taylor was involved in our process from its conception.

During the several years of planning of our facility, I had many occasions to interact with Matt and his staff.  We traveled to other venues to study other buildings, were involved in public meetings during the planning process and spend many hours working together.

I am pleased to say working with Matt and members of his staff was a totally pleasant, uplifting experience.  I can speak to his professionalism, his expertise, his straight forward demeanor, and honestly during our process.

Roberts Residence

Studio 8 Design has acted as architect on two home renovation projects or my house here in Nashville, Tennessee.  Matt Taylor was the lead architect on both projects.

In both cases, I was very happy with both the technical aspects of the services provided and the responsiveness of Matt and his employees.  I have enthusiastically recommended his services to many potential clients and will continue to do so.
