His extensive background includes the planning, design, and construction of new and renovated buildings in industries spanning healthcare, research laboratories, higher education and more. Subsequently, Buck is well-versed in the associated design standards, best practices, and code requirements of various industries, having successfully designed highly technical and comprehensive engineering solutions serving a wide variety of specialized facilities.

Beth Crutchfield, PE, LEED AP, and Don Zimmerman, PE, CEM, will assume leadership roles in RMF’s Charleston office as Division Managers.

Crutchfield joined RMF’s electrical engineering team in 1992 and has since worked on projects from healthcare and education to research laboratories, with expertise spanning all phases of development.

Through her training and education, she is well prepared to take over the financial responsibility for one of the firm’s most consistently successful divisions. 

Zimmerman will be leading the operations of the division. He also came to RMF in 1992, designing large utility infrastructure projects before joining the Charleston office in 2003. In recent years, he has provided design, engineering, and construction management services for a wide variety of mechanical engineering projects out of the Charleston office for government, commercial, educational, and industrial clients. Through his tenure at RMF, Don has proven that his practical knowledge of production and what it takes to deliver quality work is unsurpassed. His unique ability to understand workflow bottlenecks and assist the staff in managing work ensures that RMF’s standard of quality is consistently maintained.

“Beth and Don’s dedication to providing clients with the highest quality of work, and willingness to support the entire office, has laid the foundation of our collective success,” said D. Crutchfield. “Working as a united team, they will continue the excellent work that the division has completed for over 20 years, both within South Carolina and across our organization, and drive us into the next 20 years.”
