Allan Bamforth provides guidance and oversight to all firm members and their projects. In addition, he oversees quality control on engineering and surveying operations for Bamforth clients. His knowledge of applicable standards and his ability to visualize conflicts and potential constructability issues helps to ensure better quality end products. Mr. Bamforth has overseen projects across the United States, Europe, the Caribbean and the Middle East. He is also a former United States Marine. In 2014, he was inducted into the Hardy Cross Hall of Fame by the Old Dominion University Civil and Environmental Visiting Council (ODU CEEVC). The Hardy Cross Hall of Fame Award is given to an engineer whose lifetime contributions to professional and community service have significantly advanced the engineering profession.

In Memoriam: Together, Linda Z. Bamforth and C. Allan Bamforth, Jr. founded Bamforth Engineers + Surveyors in 1977. Her keen conservative business approach and guidance helped establish the company into the fiscally sound business that it remains to this day.

Anna Lee Bamforth’ s role as a project manager has included preparing preliminary engineering reports, required civil and environmental construction documents and cost estimates; obtaining site plan and permit approvals; and providing construction administration including shop drawing review for projects across the United States, Europe, and the Caribbean. She has surveyed and run the field party statewide and overseas; completed design calculations; and completed analysis of pavements, water, wastewater, and storm drainage systems.

Richard Garriott provides guidance on proposed design solutions of more complex civil engineering challenges. He also assists with multi-disciplined quality control reviews for Bamforth clients, and is able to predict and alleviate potential problem situations in both the design and construction phases of a project. His experience includes projects in civil design involving drainage, pavement, and utility systems.

Darrell Bryan joined Bamforth from the Naval Facilities Engineering Command with expertise in the fields of geotechnical and pavements engineering. He has worked on the design and construction of numerous and varied infrastructure projects from North and Central America to the Middle East. He has led teams for many major road and airfield condition assessments utilizing pavement management and design software, and is knowledgeable in pavement maintenance and materials. He performs design, specification preparation, construction support and quality control functions.

Andrea Landfair manages the civil and environmental engineering designs for Bamforth clients on a variety of federal and local government projects as well as private projects. She primarily concentrates in the increasingly more stringently regulated field of stormwater management. She has been involved with projects in the United States, Europe and Cuba. She is certified as a Virginia DEQ Stormwater Management Plan Reviewer.

Gregory Herron manages construction administration for Bamforth design projects. His expertise is primarily in construction cost-estimating and all levels of regulatory permitting. Mr. Herron provides engineering support in stormwater management, erosion and sediment control, sewer, and pump station design. He is certified as a Virginia DEQ Erosion and Sediment Control Inspector. He has PACP/LACP/MACP certification with NASSCO. He is also certified as a Green Globes Professional, and Guiding Principles Compliance Professional by Green Building Initiative.

While David Campbell has been at Bamforth, he has transformed the former ink on mylar drafting department into a state-of-the-art CADD Department. The CADD Department utilizes the latest AutoCAD, Civil 3D and GIS software. These tools allow Bamforth to provide our clients with a more accurate BIM model, construction drawings, and maps while reducing the time that is needed to design, analyze, and implement changes.

As the Office Manager, Laarni Campbell coordinates the administrative staff, human resources, and accounting duties daily to ensure the office runs smoothly. Her attention to detail is invaluable when preparing submittal packages, and scheduling staff and materials working on projects stateside and overseas.

Mike Wood does the layouts for the new work from the engineers including profiles and details. He creates the sheets that contain pertinent information and gets them ready to be printed to go to the clients.

Kurt Grizzard assists engineers with site, utility and pavement designs primarily for federal and municipal clients.

Jacob Schwartz is a recent graduate in Mechanical Engineering Technology with a minor in Engineering Management from Old Dominion University. He is currently working towards a Master’s of Business Administration at Old Dominion University. His extensive experience with AutoCAD and Revit makes him invaluable in the onboarding of new CADD Technicians. Jacob works closely with our Survey Department to complete quality CADD drawing of topographic surveys incorporating property and boundary information. Jacob is also an FAA Part 107 Certified Drone Pilot, and is developing our drone department.

Chrischa is currently studying Civil Engineering at Old Dominion University with a minor in Environmental Engineering. She has worked with multiple departments at Bamforth. In the Civil Engineering department, she develops hydraulic models, assists with calculations, and drafts permits and submittals. When working with construction administration, Chrischa reviews and documents the Shop Drawings (SD) and Referral for Information (RFI) for each project. Other tasks include backchecking site plans, and revising specs in SpecsIntact.

Josh Godfrey has performed and supervised all types of surveying projects in both the public and private sectors. His experience includes subdivisions, topographic surveys, boundary, control networks for aerial mapping, drainage studies, large scale utility mapping, and construction stake-out. He has also been involved in numerous international projects.
