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

Shannon Abraham joined KCBA in June 2018 after completing her architectural studies at Penn State and quickly established herself as a creative, detailed, and dependable team member. She has participated significantly on many of the firm’s largest and highest-profile recent projects such as the new Avon Grove High School, new Lower Moreland High School, renovation of Kratzer Elementary School for Parkland School District, and an outdoor athletics master plan for Cedar Crest College. Shannon shines in all facets of the architectural process with a particular aptitude for the development of imaginative and sustainable schematic design concepts. She is a LEED Green Associate and holds a Bachelor of Architecture degree.

Emily Liuzza joined KCBA in April 2019 with a background in the design and development of higher education projects. She rapidly acclimated and began making strong contributions to a range of KCBA’s projects in the higher education and K-12 realms. Prominent examples include the new Center for Mallett Percussion Research at Kutztown University, the renovation of Masland Library at Cairn University, a new community outreach center at Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology, and the new Arrowhead Elementary School at Methacton School District. Emily is a well-rounded professional with excellent communication skills; two special areas of expertise are the development of project renderings and the administration of construction. Emily holds both Bachelor of Architecture and Master of Science in Architecture degrees from Penn State.

Michael Kelly, AIA, ALEP, LEED AP, Principal of KCBA, said, “I’m excited to congratulate Shannon and Emily on this signature professional achievement. They both are important members of the KCBA team and it’s been a great pleasure to observe their impressive accomplishments over the last few years. We look forward to many more!”
