About Us


The Cameron Management concept is to house all functions of owning and managing a commercial office property under one umbrella: ownership, property management, leasing, and engineering. This concept produces valuable synergies, which in turn help contain the overall cost of running a building. These lower costs are passed on to the tenants through well-managed operational expenses. It is Cameron’s philosophy to maintain particularly close relationships with its tenants so that they feel valued and their needs are responded to quickly.

Allan Fuller Director of Engineering


As Director of Engineering / LEED AP, Allan Fuller focuses on increasing efficiency of operations and reducing energy consumption by applying practical and innovative improvements throughout all of Cameron Management’s investments.



In 2013 and 2014, Cameron Management acted as the general contractor in the Esperson escalator installation and Rusk lobby. The most competitive bid for the conveyance work was originally priced at $940,893.20 by Kone Elevator. Allan was successful in reducing the bid to $789,999 netting a 16% savings of $150,984. Similar efforts were achieved in all MEP components of the project making the overall cost substantially below typical market costs for this type of project.

During 2011, Allan developed and implemented a capital improvement project for Energy Plaza to provide an auxiliary cooling solution for the Petroleum Club, eliminating 1,400 hours of central plant run-time annually. The project reduced energy consumption by 365,817 kilowatt hours for an annual savings of $30,667.

In August 2011, Allan, once again, led the Cameron Management Team in acquiring LEED Gold EB: O&M certification at 1001 McKinney.

In August 2009, Allan spearheaded the documentation and work for the certification process to acquire the LEED-EB v2.0 Gold certification for 2000 St. James Place, a former Cameron Management property.

The Houston Club Building was purchased in 2007. Under Allan’s leadership and focus, building operation was fully automated with new controls, and energy consumption was reduced by 57.4%. All work was performed in-house.

When Cameron acquired the option of buying a position in 7660 Woodway, Allan increased the asset value by replacing the existing air-cooled HVAC system with an evaporative-cooled system that reduced annual operating costs by $150,000. The project earned a Centerpoint rebate of $56,000 reducing the capital cost to less than $300,000.

The lack of emergency power was a major concern in the purchase of the Esperson buildings in 2004. The previous owner cited costs in excess of two million dollars for not addressing the deficiency. Allan’s plan revisions reduced the capital cost to an affordable level of $620,000.

The Richmond portfolio of buildings were automated and refurbished under Allan’s guidance to improve performance and create value by lowering labor and operating costs.


Allan began his career in building management at 1001 McKinney in 1976, where he served in a formal apprenticeship program sponsored by Houston Management and Real Estate Company, Houston Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA), and the US Department of Labor. Allan’s engineering career spans work in hospitality and industrial facilities and working as an independent mechanical contractor. Allan started working with Dougal Cameron in 1995 with the purchase of 3000 Richmond from Gerald Hines and provides the facility operations solutions for the Cameron portfolio.

Tenant Testimonials:

Conner & Winters, LLP


Conner & Winters, LLP is excited about finally becoming a member of the Esperson family of tenants in its “Crown Jewel of Houston Office Buildings,” taking the 23rd floor of the Niels Esperson Building.

This has been a long, nine year wait for the right opportunity

says Douglas M. Selwyn, Partner in the Conner & Winters law firm, who negotiated the lease.

I have admired this building for many years. The history, elegance and charm of the Niels Esperson building makes this very attractive in contrast to the new glass, concrete and steel structures that appear cold and sterile. The president of our firm, while in Houston on business, toured the office prior to negotiating the lease, immediately saw the same qualities of the building, lease space and history, and supported our efforts to lease the 23rd Floor.

With the Houston office of Conner & Winters expanding, it most recently added Bill Worthington and Peter Arbour.
