Barbara Maloney



Ironically, the very thing that makes Barbara Maloney an award-winning planning and design principal and project team leader is the individual sport at which she excelled in school. She was a regional league and tournament golfer which requires a great deal of self-reliance and confidence, but the sport also taught her how to focus at critical times and to positively channel her competitive energy.

These qualities are very necessary to master the types of complex and demanding urban development and campus planning projects in which Barbara specializes. In particular, the pace of change in higher education is significant so the challenges – and the rewards - are enormous, the latter particularly when working with an engaged and thoughtful client. One project that stands out for Barbara is the planning of the University of California, San Francisco, Mission Bay campus.
