About

History

Siefert Associates, LLC was founded in June of 2000 by Vincent Siefert. At that time he was working out of an extra bedroom in his home and with his dog by his side. Since then, Siefert Associates, LLC has grown from a one-person operation to a team of 35-plus working out of two office locations - Watertown, CT and White Plains NY. Siefert has quickly become the professional engineering firm of choice in the New York City metropolitan area.

We are defined by our Core Values of Honesty, Integrity and Work Life Balance and our network of clients is comprised of peers who share these same values. We are extremely proud of our client relationships, and led by an understanding that our success depends on their success.

Vince founded Siefert Associates in 2000 after working 13 years for contractors. This experience gave him a unique understanding and insight into the construction industry. He achieved the rank of General Superintendent, often managing over 100 people, through which he honed his leadership, project management, and construction engineering skills. Working with people and projects is his passion. He keenly understands the importance of finishing projects on time and listening to and understanding client needs. It is of utmost importance to the Siefert team to establish relationships that inspire confidence and mutual trust. Vince started Siefert Associates as a sole proprietor, working out of his house, and has grown the firm to over 35 employees with locations in Connecticut and New York. When the company began, Siefert Associates provided services primarily in the New York City area. Over the past 21 years, the company has expanded its work to include New England, Mid-Atlantic states, and the Midwest, with major projects in Michigan, Florida, and Canada.  At the beginning of his career, Vince worked with construction and engineering firms such as Moretrench America, Walsh Construction (Div. of Guy F. Atkinson), Kiewit Eastern, George A. Tomasso Construction, and Zieman Engineering. His early years were spent in building construction and later progressed to heavy highway civil construction work. This path helped Vince develop the expertise to lead a company that provides creative, high-quality construction engineering services for large-scale infrastructure projects. Vince and his wife Eva are the parents of four wonderful, accomplished daughters and four grandchildren, who all live near their home in Connecticut. Vince is an active person who loves the great outdoors. He spends his free time boating, mountain biking, skiing, motorcycling, fishing, listening to live music, and practicing yoga and meditation.
