Asset Management/Facilities Services

Associate Vice Chancellor Sally McGarrahan

Sally McGarrahan has a Bachelor of Arts – Architecture from UC Berkeley.  She is a licenced architect and was the sole proprietor of a high-end residential design and construction company, McGarrahan Design and Construction, before coming to UC Berkeley as a senior project manager in 2005.  She managed a number of projects for the campus, including the renovation of historic Durant Hall and construction of the new Energy Biosciences Building, a lab facility on the west edge of campus that was completed ahead of schedule and under budget.

Sally became manager of the campus’s Capital Renewal Program in January 2012, directing a multi-year, multi-million dollar annual reinvestment program to restore and renew all UC Berkeley facilities including buildings, utilities, and landscape.  In August 2014 she was appointed Director of Asset Management, a new unit for the campus tasked with oversight of property management, renewal reinvestment, maintenance, and operations for all campus facilities and utilities. In mid-2015, a reorganization joined Facilities Services, the unit responsible for campus maintenance, with Asset Management.  Sally serves as AVC of the combined unit.
