Richmond-based civil engineering firm Koontz Bryant Johnson Williams (KBJW) announced Tuesday that Cameron Palmore has been hired as director of housing and education.
With more than 24 years of experience, Palmore most recently served a five-year contract with the University of Virginia’s Energy and Utilities Department as a senior project manager. In his new role, he will focus on growing business and building relationships within the housing and higher education markets.
“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,” KBJW President Greg Koontz said in a statement. “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 at his alma mater, Virginia Tech.”
Palmore, a licensed civil engineer and land surveyor, earned his bachelor’s degree in civil engineering from Virginia Tech in 1995. He has worked throughout Virginia on redevelopment, athletic fields, new construction, parking lot design and stormwater management projects. Outside of work, Palmore also serves as an advisory board member and co-chair of the curriculum and course enhancement committee for the Virginia Tech Land Development Design Initiative.
Founded in 1990, KBJW provides services including land planning, site design, landscape architecture, geotechnical engineering, environmental engineering, drainfield design, wetland delineation and land surveying. Some of the company’s more recent projects include work on Christopher Newport University’s Trible Library, the President’s Circle in Hollywood Cemetery and the U.S.S. Monitor Center.
