“Deborah’s professionalism is consistent and runs very deep. In-person communications and detailed written reports have scientific credibility and educational value. She works at a level of expertise, with clients and the public, that is demonstrably transparent, ethically thorough, and of practical application to individuals lacking a background in the field of acoustics. One acquires new perspectives (and new ears) working with Deborah.”

Deborah Jue, Principal & Treasurer

Since joining Wilson Ihrig in 1990, Ms. Jue has been involved in with many projects from environmental assessments and entitlements, through design development, construction documents and construction administration support. As an acoustical consultant, she has provided noise measurement, analysis and recommendations to control noise and vibration both at the interior of the project and at the neighboring properties. She has authored many reports concerning compliance with the requirements of California Noise Insulation Standards, Title 24, local Noise Elements, environmental assessments and Federal noise criteria, and is well aware of the additional design and construction technique requirements to achieve industry standards. She gives presentations to public officials when necessary to explain construction noise problems, noise mitigation goals, and noise control methods. She can develop construction noise and vibration criteria to address vibration damage potential to nearby buildings and sensitive structures, and vibration annoyance or disruption potential for occupants of nearby buildings. As part of her work, she is a senior technical lead on highway and rail noise models, environmental analyses for all types of projects, and planning for long-term construction noise and vibration.

In addition to her project work and oversight, in her role as company Treasurer, she is an integral part of the management team for the company.
