Cydney McGlothlin named university architect
Cydney McGlothlin, a project manager at the University of Florida since 2003, has been named university architect.
McGlothlin has managed some of the most notable projects at UF, including the J. Wayne Reitz Union renovation and addition, the Harn Museum’s Asian Art Wing and the Herbert Wertheim Laboratory for Engineering Excellence.
As a registered architect in Florida and Colorado, her talent and skill make her a strong advocate for quality design at UF and she will represent the university on the national stage as she joins her peers in the Association of University Architects, said Vice President of Business Affairs Curtis A. Reynolds.
In this role, McGlothlin will guide the architectural aesthetic on UF’s main campus. She will see projects through the approval process and work with the Planning, Design & Construction team to ensure compliance with campus design guidelines and other standards. She will ensure projects comply with ongoing planning initiatives such as the Campus Master Plan, Strategic Development Plan, Landscape Master Plan, Transportation and Parking Strategic Plan, Housing Master Plan, Utility Infrastructure Master Plan, Campus Framework Plan and the Wayfinding Plan.
In support of the ‘Strive for Five’ initiative, she will also benchmark UF’s built environment and infrastructure against other top-ranked universities.
