Koontz Bryant Johnson Williams (KBJW), a leading regional civil engineering firm headquartered in Richmond, Virginia, is excited to announce the addition of Cameron Palmore, PE, LS, as the firm’s new Director of Housing and Education. A seasoned engineering professional, Palmore has more than 24 years of experience as a land development consultant, known for providing on-time project delivery and permitting, from acquisition through construction.
“We are extremely pleased to add Cameron to the KBJW team,” shared Greg Koontz, President. “His extensive background and experience in all types of housing and education projects including single family residential, townhouses, apartments and higher education, will be a great addition to the firm. In addition to his work experience, it is great to see someone so committed and involved with the education of young engineers in our field through the Land Development and Design Initiative (LDDI) at his alma mater, Virginia Tech.”
A Licensed Civil Engineer and Land Surveyor, Palmore received his Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering from Virginia Tech in 1995. He has significant experience with clients throughout the Commonwealth and has worked on a broad range of engineering projects, including redevelopment, athletic fields, new construction, parking lot design and stormwater management. In his new role as the Director of Housing and Education at KBJW, Palmore will focus on growing business by strengthening existing relationships and developing new relationships within the housing and higher education markets.
“I’ve known Greg [Koontz, President] for years and in every conversation, he’s talked about the unique culture of KBJW,” said Palmore. “Lots of companies say they’re family-focused, but at KBJW, they live it. Family truly is a priority, and it shows in the work of the employees and the product that they deliver. I’m excited to be part of such a family-oriented company and look forward to helping grow business, while maintaining that family feel.”
Most recently, Palmore served as the Senior Project Manager for a five-year term contract with the University of Virginia’s Energy and Utilities Department. In that role he oversaw the design and construction of multi-disciplinary projects, with a focus on central utilities. He also managed large capital projects at other state universities. Most notably, he oversaw the design and construction of a steam tunnel replacement at Longwood University in Farmville, VA.
In addition to his work locally, Palmore continues to play an active role with his alma mater, serving as an advisory board member and co-chair of the curriculum and course enhancement committee for the Virginia Tech Land Development Design Initiative.
