Barley is originally from Masonboro Sound, just south and east of Wilmington, NC. Growing up in a small fishing community in a family of builders, Creating and Making was a part of life, working with wood and metals was a life-skill from a very young age. This inspired a lifetime of learning about architecture and engineering. Attending UNC Charlotte and The University of Washington opened a new door to the world of architecture, integrating the art of making with new meaning and focus.
For more than 30 years, this inspiration continued, and has always involved the design build process as a model. Most of the last decade Barley has centered his career around housing, with organizations that integrate real estate into the design build model. Barley has represented real estate, design and construction processes for over $2B in assets for Owners in the last decade, with strong measured results. Vertically integrated organizations have allowed design-build modelling for very large mixed use housing projects.
Academic experience teaching and lecturing at The University of Washington and The University of Missouri fuels mindful focus on the broader interest. A foundation of hands-on field work facilitates skills to foster excellent Teamwork and Teambuilding skills within the Owner/Client/Builder interactive process, complemented with intensive problem solving savvy and proven results.
Barley brings this unique set of experiences and skills to Wolk360, and looks forward to helping the team manage both design and construction processes.
