Maria Denney has dedicated her career to building educational spaces since 1998. Her experience as an architect, contractor and construction manager give her a breadth of experience to successfully lead a team forward.
Maria has helped many school districts in the Bay Area have successful bond programs including San Francisco, Oakland and Berkeley. Most notably, she lead the construction program at Oakland Unified School District with their $475m Measure J bond. Her tenacity and ability to work through difficult issues is what sets her apart from other managers. Her strengths include embracing the rigors of community engagement, being fiscally responsible when the client's needs outweigh their budgets and exposing the strengths of each member of the team.
Maria is always an advocate for what is best for the students and making sure the tax payer's money is being spent responsibly.
