Moore, who has more than 17 years of experience at Elon, will oversee facilities management, sustainability and planning, design and construction at the university.
Elon University has named Brad Moore associate vice president for facilities and chief facilities officer, both newly created roles that will oversee the facilities management, sustainability and planning, design and construction management units at the university.
Moore has served as director of planning, design and construction management since 2012 and in 2014 also took on the role of university architect. He has played an integral part in the ongoing development of new facilities and redevelopment of existing facilities on Elon’s 690-acre campus, which includes 219 buildings with more than 3 million square feet of space, nearly triple the amount in place when Moore arrived in 2005.
The university’s recent growth has included the addition of numerous LEED-certified buildings, including Founders Hall and Innovation Hall, which opened in fall 2022 and are certified LEED Gold. Projects and facilities completed under Moore’s leadership include The Inn at Elon, East Campus Neighborhood, Richard W. Sankey Hall, Schar Center, Steers Pavilion, Dwight C. Schar Hall, LaRose Student Commons, Inman Welcome Center, the Station at Mill Point Neighborhood, Lakeside Dining Hall, the Global Neighborhood, Alumni Fieldhouse, South Gym, PARC, the Koenigsberger Learning Center, Hunt Softball Park, Numen Lumen Pavilion, the campus wayfinding signage system and the new Elon Elementary School.
Moore said he is thrilled about the opportunity to collaborate with the incredible members that make up the combined facilities department. “These talented teams have created and maintained the beautiful Elon University campus that we all enjoy,” Moore said. “I am excited to see how together we can continue to shape and serve this amazing and unique living and learning environment.”
Moore will report to Vice President for Finance and Administration Janet Williams and will provide guidance and direction for the continuous growth and improvement of university facilities. While he will keep providing leadership for the campus master plan and design of new major projects, in this new role, Moore will focus on positioning the university to achieve the goals outlined in its strategic plan, Boldly Elon, while continuing to improve customer service.
Moore joined Elon University in November 2005 as assistant director of construction management and was promoted to associate director of planning, design and construction management in 2007, then to director in 2012. He has a bachelor’s degree in environmental design in architecture from N.C. State University and master’s degrees in architecture and in regional and city planning from Clemson University. He begins his new role on June 3.
