Barnharts high profile projects include PetCo Park, San Diego State University College of Arts and Letters, San Diego Lindbergh Field Terminal 2 Expansion, California State University Los Angeles Student Union, Lewis Library and Technology Center, Mission Viejo City Hall, Abraham Lincoln High School Reconstruction and the City of Indian Wells Golf Clubhouse.
