Paul Hume joined GWWO in 1993, distinguished himself early through work on challenging assignments with Baltimore County Public Schools and the State of Maryland—clients he retains today—and joined the management team in 1997.

Paul is dedicated to improving learning environments for Maryland’s students and has focused his career almost exclusively on the planning and design of Maryland educational facilities.  He leads new construction and renovation projects that embrace technology and sustainability and provide unique facilities tailored to each client’s curriculum and teaching methods, while remaining responsive to concerns related to facility maintenance and durability, project schedules and construction budgets.  

Within the office, Paul was instrumental in establishing GWWO as an early user of Building Information Modeling (BIM) technologies and he is a regular speaker on its use, merits and implementation.  In particular, he has spoken on the use of BIM in educational facility design at numerous Association of School Business Officials, MD & DC chapter, conferences, and is part of a state-wide task force establishing a BIM Resource Guide for Maryland’s public schools.  

Paul also serves as the President of the Board of the Baltimore Building Congress & Exchange, President of Board for the BC&E Foundation and was formerly chair of BC&E's Construction Technology committee.  He currently serves as the president of the Board of Trustees for Second Presbyterian Church.  He has also served on the Board of the Baltimore chapter of the AIA and as the chair of AIA Baltimore's Technology in Practice committee.  He holds a Bachelor of Architecture degree from Syracuse University.
