About

Altieri (Altieri Sebor Wieber LLC Consulting Engineers) provides leading edge engineering systems for museums, educational institutions, libraries, theatres, residences, and research facilities. Established by John L. Altieri in 1959, the firm evolved from residential and small commercial projects to working with architects such as Paul Rudolf, Dean of the Yale School of Architecture. Subsequent relationships with Eero Saarinen and Saarinen’s successor firm of Kevin Roche and John Dinkeloo continue to this day, notably with Kevin Roche’s 40-year master plan for the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Altieri’s extensive portfolio also includes engineering support for iconic office buildings, luxury residences, and many landmark buildings and campuses. The company’s vast experience and exceptional track record with high-visibility projects, such as the Getty Center in Brentwood, CA and the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, consistently draw internationally recognized architects to retain the firm, including ten recipients of the Pritzker Prize to date.

From its base of operations in Norwalk, Connecticut, Altieri’s 60-member team is known for its collective expertise in assessment and master planning of mechanical and electrical systems specifically for education and cultural institutions. Directed by principals Andrew J. Sebor, J. Kenny Wieber, Philip C. Steiner, Kari A. Nystrom, Michael A. Freliech, Adam J. Trojanowski, and J. Kenny Wieber, Jr., the firm looks beyond individual buildings to evaluate context and presence, available resources, and opportunities to synthesize multiple systems to achieve energy economies.

Altieri’s principals and staff remain grounded by the original principles set by John Altieri to achieve excellence in the design of responsible energy distribution and the control systems that manage them. The firm conceives and executes highly innovative mechanical and electrical solutions that support the architecture and contribute to the quality of the built environment.
