Talk about the luck of the Irish, not only is the University of Notre Dame in the middle of the largest building initiative in its history, but the $400 million project also has a former Notre Dame student-athlete as part of the project team. Meet Genevieve Malone, a Project Engineer II with Barton Malow Company. A native of Dayton, Ohio, Malone was a member of the Rowing Team during her tenure at Notre Dame, earning three monograms and four Big East titles. She was also part of the Engineering Honors Program.
Coming back to Notre Dame has proven fulfilling. “Notre Dame gave me so much while I was here that it’s rewarding to give back in this way.” More specifically, as the project engineer, Malone handles submittals, RFIs, subcontractor coordination, and logistical planning. She monitors the field progress. Her responsibilities encompass stadium earth retention; the tunnel and underground MEP; stadium lights, seating, and windows; brick; cast stone; and the air handling units. She was also in charge of the previous stadium project — replacing the stadium grass with field turf.
But stadiums are not the only structures Malone has overseen. She began her career with the Walsh Group in Las Vegas and coordinated the construction of the Administration Building and Education Center addition of the Las Vegas Veteran’s Hospital and an air traffic control tower, base building, and parking structure at the McCarran International Airport.
Malone graduated in 2011 from the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering & Earth Sciences.
