Keith Kammerer


Keith Kammerer joined Werner Buckl and Buckl Architects in 1995 to open the N.J. office and to develop clients in the Philadelphia and New Jersey markets.  Prior to joining Buckl Architects, Keith was a client serving for 5 years as the Director of Facilities Planning and Construction for Hahnemann University / Hospital, a large inner-city academic health care institution located in center city Philadelphia.  After receiving his Bachelors of Architecture degree from Rennselaer Polytechnic Institute in 1982, Keith was commissioned as an officer in the U.S Navy Civil Engineer Corps.  With a degree and Navy commission in-hand, Keith traveled west to Long Beach, California where he served in several construction related NAVY billets including two years as the ‘Staff Civil Engineer’ at the Naval Hospital – Long Beach, a 500-bed healthcare facility providing health services to all active duty personnel and retirees in the greater Los Angeles / Orange County areas.

Following his service in the Navy, in 1988 Keith headed back to his native Philadelphia area where he spent 4 years in traditional A/E design firms including 2 years with H2L2 Architects in Philadelphia. During this period Keith received his professional license in 1988 and in 1991 began at Hahnemann University / Hospital as that institution entered into the initial phases of a major campus redevelopment program.  5 years of major expansion and renovation projects within a complex inner city healthcare campus provided incredible wealth of experience to head back to the design field by joining Buckl Architects in 1995.

It is that broad-based experience with both design and operational healthcare services that anchors Buckl Architects current direction and approach to serving our clients and our approach to staffing for our healthcare clients and projects….with a strong perspective from the operational side!
