Cameron Engineering has a professional staff of approximately 70 employees including 23 Professional Engineers licensed in New York State, two (2) Registered Landscape Architect and three (3) Members of the American Institute of Certified Planners. Several of our Professional Engineers are licensed in multiple states. Our staff also includes many employees with graduate degrees in the fields of engineering and/or science. The staff works in a multi-disciplined environment and is familiar with overall project requirements, in addition to their specific area of expertise. This enables superior project coordination of disciplines, scheduling, planning for constructability, and implementation of a well-planned and conceived project.

Cameron Engineering has 26 professionals in various disciplines who have achieved the United States Green Building Council LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) accreditation. Accordingly, we strive to implement high-performance buildings incorporating energy efficiency design, and sustainable sites through effective and efficient design and construction concepts. Our designs balance environmental responsibility, achieve resource efficiency, and provide occupant comfort and well-being. Although a limited number of projects achieve true LEED status, implementation of the LEED certification process for specific scope of work items usually achieves a truly successful project; for so many years, this concept has been implemented by Cameron Engineering on each design aspect. Accordingly, we typically would examine the specific problem or deficiency, evaluate cost effective proven remediation techniques and implement solutions considering environmental concerns, longevity and cost effective constructability. Cost versus effect is always evaluated to assure that the most appropriate solution is implemented.
