Through attentive work and dedication, she has helped implement community-driven projects both locally and throughout the state. From the beloved “Nine sisters” concept for the new San Luis Obispo airport terminal courtyard, to lifestyle communities in Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, Monterey and Contra Costa Counties, she has been instrumental in providing design vision and growth for our team. In coordination with our multi-disciplinary team of professionals, she is excited to continue supporting design and development of resilient, meaningful and economically successful projects.

“We are very excited about Bianca becoming a Director. With her 16 years at Wallace Group, she brings the creativity, managerial and technical expertise to help lead her group into new markets, geographic areas and fresh opportunities as we approach our 35th year in the community,” said Brad Brechwald CEO/President.

Bianca’s passion for landscape architecture lies primarily in the opportunity to help people and place be their best. As site designers, landscape architects integrate their extensive design knowledge with engineering, which is critical for the thoughtful and efficient use of our most precious resources – time, money, energy, and water. Looking forward, Bianca believes we will all benefit from places that prioritize health, connect people to place, and help build community.

 

In her new role, Bianca is excited to advocate for the landscape architecture group, helping to highlight the specific strengths where Wallace Group excels. “It’s an honor to support our team as they earn important wins, for example, when Senior Landscape Architect, Ann Sever secured a new project for the design of LeRoy Park– a critical community resource for the City of Guadalupe. Or when our most recent, licensed landscape architect and former student of mine, Matthew Parker, gains the trust and respect of our Clients through his professionalism, dependability, and responsiveness.”

Reflecting on her time at Wallace Group, Bianca is grateful for the attention centering around Dedication to Service. She has been able to work side-by-side with focused and caring professionals to help grow our team into an integrated, collaborative unit, taking a comprehensive approach to design and engineering from concept to community.

What’d you do before WG?

As a former collegiate athlete and NCAA Division 1 Champion, I know what it means to work hard, provide unconditional support to my team members, go after big goals, and play to win. Before Wallace Group, I worked in landscape architecture offices in downtown LA, Alexandria, Virginia, and Pismo Beach.

 Why Landscape Architecture?

My passion for landscape architecture lies primarily in the opportunity to help people and place be their best.

During this time, I’ve been able to work side-by-side with focused and caring professionals to help grow our team into an integrated, collaborative unit, taking a comprehensive approach to design and engineering from concept to community.
