Altieri has provided MEPF consulting engineering systems for cultural, educational, community, residential, and historic buildings for over 60 years. Our reputation as an industry leader is based on considerable expertise in special systems serving highly controlled, architecturally challenging environments, and the seamless integration of these systems within the architectural and landscape context.

Decades of design experience have been driven by our imperative to engineer the best solutions for each project – to ensure that our designs are sensitive to architectural integrity, support the creative vision of our clients, and enhance the user experience. We deliver high-quality designs employing the most current technologies, on time and with a critical eye to managing costs. It is our mission to meet high profile design challenges with solutions that set the pace for a sustainable future.

This priority has been a distinction of our work since the early 1960s. Significantly, The Getty Center received LEED® Silver certification eight years after opening, based on Altieri’s designs from a period predating the introduction and implementation of the LEED® process. Today, over 40 of Altieri’s projects have been awarded LEED® certification. 

A Connecticut-based Small Business Enterprise (SBE) with a deeply rooted culture of creativity, Altieri is a diverse, imaginative, and versatile team of engineers. A distinct hallmark of our success is the team’s commitment to quality and the involvement of our Principals and Associate Principals in the design and direction of each project. Clients praise our “unrivaled multi-disciplinary expertise,” “gold standard of creative design,” exceptional attention to detail, and outstanding team coordination.
