OU Architectural and Engineering Services director retires

NORMAN — Michael Moorman, director of the University of Oklahoma’s Architectural and Engineering Services and University Architect, has announced his retirement, effective Jan. 1.

Moorman joined the OU staff in 1982 and, since 1995, has served as director of A&E Services, during which time he has guided more than $1.6 billion in new construction or major renovation projects for OU’s Norman, Oklahoma City and Tulsa campuses. He is responsible for the capital improvements program on all three campuses and long-range campus planning for the University.

Moorman first served as assistant director for A&E Services and as the university’s campus planner, during which time he earned a Master of Business Administration from OU. 

He has overseen major projects for numerous academic and research facilities, including comprehensive development planning for OU’s Research Campus.

Moorman cites the creation of Brooks Mall as one of the most important campus changes with which he has been involved.

Moorman also represented OU’s Office of the President on the four-member Architectural Review Board for the development of University North Park.

Boren said that he will recommend that the OU Board of Regents approve the appointment of Brian Holderread, project director for Manhattan Construction Co. of Oklahoma City, to serve as director of A&E Services, effective Nov. 1.
