Brian Barry

VP, Operations (CHI)

Brian understands that the synergy between W.E. O’Neil, the architect, and the owner is the key to success when building a project. With over 20 years of industry experience, with a majority of those spent rising the ranks at W.E. O’Neil, he has become a true champion of the firm’s values and a successful project leader.

Brian recently completed One Oak Brook Commons, a 17-story residential tower that was completed on an impressive 15-month schedule. He assembled and managed a team that was able to keep up with the pace and quality standards set by the owner. Through successful project work like this, Brian fosters long-term client relationships to deliver complex projects in Chicagoland and beyond.

The most rewarding part our industry is not only seeing projects from concept through construction, but also seeing them move into utilization, when people are actually using the project in their lives and in the community.
