    Curt Heuring, an architect with a long history of designing and planning university buildings, has been appointed University Architect, Associate Vice President for Facilities Duane Hickling has announced.

    As the University Architect, Heuring will implement and manage the Campus Master Plan as well as direct planning and programming of new facilities and those to be redeveloped.

    “The building projects defined in the Campus Master Plan are some of the most important architectural undertakings of the University in the last couple of decades,” said Hickling. “Curt Heuring, with his years of campus planning and design experience and his broad experience with university buildings, is ideal for this position, and we’re very pleased to welcome him to the University.”

    Heuring comes from Harvard University, where he was director of project management. At Harvard, Heuring was instrumental in the master planning for the university’s North Yard, its athletic complex and the Harvard Business School. His other projects included renovation of student housing, the Harvard Law School library, the central admissions offices and laboratory and research facilities for the school of public health, the chemistry department, and the division of engineering and applied sciences.

    Previously, Heuring had been assistant director for architecture, engineering and facilities management for the city of Boston during its 500-building, $40-million, capital-construction program. He has also been an architect for the science facilities at Bryn Mawr College, Hobart and William Smith College and Boston University. Additionally, he worked as a project manager and conducted a feasibility study for the renovation of the historic Vermont Marble Company building into a research facility for OMYA Paper Company.

    Heuring received his master of architecture in 1982 and his bachelor’s degree in 1978 from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.
