Curtis Butterfield, Richland Office Manager
Out of the Office
I enjoy spending a lot of my time working around the house and doing home improvement projects. When I’m not working on the house, I’m spending time with my wife and five children. We enjoy traveling, exploring, and spending time together. One of our recent memorable trips was Christmas in Garden Valley, ID. It snowed constantly for the whole week. We enjoyed the crackling fire, snow sledding, soaking in the hot springs, holiday cooking, a visit from Santa, and making wonderful memories.
I’ve spent five and a half years of my adult life outside of the USA. Much of that time was spent working in Iraq and Afghanistan as a military contractor. It was scary at times, but I met some interesting people and made some lifelong friendships. I found it extremely satisfying serving our service men and women.
Work History & Expertise
I worked as a plumbing contractor for 15 years prior to becoming an engineer. Seven years of which I owned and operated a plumbing business. I also spent three and a half years doing O&M plumbing as a military contractor in Iraq and Afghanistan. My plumbing experience is very broad as I’ve designed and worked on a large variety of facilities, systems, and projects. I transitioned to engineering in 2017 because I wanted to expand my knowledge and tackle bigger challenges. My engineering experience focuses mainly on water and wastewater systems planning, design and construction for pipe, pump, HVAC and plumbing systems. I also manage a variety of projects and lead the HVAC and plumbing group here at Keller. I am passionate about client satisfaction and always strive to exceed our client’s expectations by providing deliverables on schedule and within budget.
