KCBA Congratulates Anthony Russo and Stephen Custer

By KCBA Architects

KCBA Architects is delighted to announce that two employees have achieved licensure as registered architects in Pennsylvania.

Anthony Russo has been with KCBA since 2009 and acted as a key team member on many of the firm’s largest and highest-profile projects such as the new Science Center at Bucks County Community College, major renovation/expansion of Pottsgrove High School, and the reconstruction of Altoona Area High School. Anthony has also made many positive contributions to the firm’s operations, particularly related to technology and the research and introduction of new design and documentation tools. Most notably he helped spearhead KCBA’s transition to BIM as our primary documentation software early in his tenure and has trained many team members in its use. Anthony holds a Bachelor of Science in Design (Architecture) from Clemson University and Bachelor of Architecture from Temple University.

Stephen Custer joined KCBA in 2019 bringing a background in the design and development of commercial office and retail projects. He has rapidly acclimated and been making strong contributions to a range of KCBA’s projects in the senior living and institutional realms. Stephen brings a passion for technology and is engaged in advancing the firm’s use of different tools and software. He’s also active in professional advocacy efforts and serves on the Board of Directors of the Society of American Registered Architects PA Council. Stephen holds a Master of Architecture from the New Jersey Institute of Technology and a Bachelor of Science in Architecture from Jefferson University.

Michael Kelly, AIA, LEED AP, Principal of KCBA, said, “Congratulations to Anthony and Stephen! I and the rest of the KCBA team join them in celebrating this exciting accomplishment. Both are instrumental members of our firm and we look forward to many more professional achievements during their careers.”
