Associate principal Jane Barker, AIA, deepens firm’s experience in higher education and academic architecture, reinforces studio’s commitment to net-positive and sustainable design
Students, staff, and faculty at colleges and universities throughout the Pacific Northwest and along the West Coast have benefited from architect Jane Barker’s campus planning and academic project leadership. The veteran higher education architect has designed more than 700,000 square feet of classroom, residential, and community spaces on more than a dozen college and university campuses. Now, Barker is bringing her experience to Hennebery Eddy as an associate principal, reinforcing the firm’s commitment to creating high-performance, energy-efficient, and award-winning learning spaces that inspire.
“Having worked as both an owner’s representative and as a design partner, Jane is uniquely qualified to anticipate and accommodate the priorities of our clients, while continuing to push the boundaries of design-forward, sustainable solutions,” said Tim Eddy, principal and president at Hennebery Eddy. “In addition, her leadership developing design and performance standards, including systems to achieve net-zero energy, water, and waste infrastructure, and her campus planning experience dovetail with the firm’s net-positive approach to design.”
Barker’s range of certified LEED® Platinum and LEED Gold new buildings at colleges, universities, and independent K-12 schools complements Hennebery Eddy’s portfolio of academic projects, including the recent renovation of historic Chapman Hall at the University of Oregon, the new Harmony West building at Clackamas Community College, and the expansion of Cascades Academy in Bend, as well as Bend Science Station, still under construction at Oregon State University – Cascades.
Prior to joining Hennebery Eddy, Barker was a senior project manager at OSU–Cascades, overseeing and guiding the development of the new Bend campus, including 157,000 square feet of academic, residential, and student life facilities, and planning for 1.2 million square feet in future phases. She previously held positions with other architecture firms in Portland. Barker is a LEED accredited professional, a member of the Society of College and University Planners, and has a Bachelor of Architecture degree from the University of Oregon.
