She will oversee facilities planning, building construction, and other major projects, renovations, and capital improvements

Mary Wilford-Hunt has been named Lafayette’s director of facilities planning and construction. A registered architect and a member of the American Institute of Architects, she comes to the College from Spillman Farmer Architects, Bethlehem, Pa.

Wilford-Hunt will oversee all of the College’s facilities planning, building construction, and other major projects, renovations, and capital improvements.

“With Bruce Ferretti, director of plant operations, managing the College’s maintenance, custodial, grounds, mechanical, and general trade functions and steam plant operations, Mary and Bruce create an unparalleled team that maintains and further enhances the College’s outstanding physical facilities and grounds,” says Mitchell Wein, the College’s vice president for business affairs and treasurer.

Wein adds, “A LEED-certified professional and member of the U.S. Green Building Council, Mary has a strong commitment to sustainability initiatives in higher education.” Lafayette’s sustainability efforts, led by George Xiques, manager of sustainability and environmental planning, will be incorporated into her department.

Prior to joining Spillman Farmer Architects, Wilford-Hunt was university architect/planner for East Stroudsburg University for nearly 10 years. She led East Stroudsburg’s campus master plan and managed many creative projects.

After receiving her master of architecture degree from Rice University, Wilford-Hunt worked with architecture and real estate development firms in Washington, D.C., for 13 years before returning to Pennsylvania. She also holds a bachelor of science degree in architecture from the University of Virginia and studied design at the Architectural Association in London.
