Intern Highlight! “Hello my name is Amjad. I am a senior at the University of the Pacific studying Civil Engineering. Being able to work along side the great engineers at Siegfried and my mentor Frank, I have learned so much. Through my experience at Siegfried, I hope to become a better engineer and apply the skills I have learned moving forward in my career. I first heard about Siegfried through Tiger Jobs on UOP’s website. After meeting with some of the crew and hearing about their structural department, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity.” Thank you for all of your hard work Amjad! We appreciate you!
“My name is Casey and I’m a student at Cal Poly SLO, just about to start my final year there. I am studying civil engineering with an emphasis on structural engineering and also working towards a minor in construction management. I really enjoyed my time at Siegfried. Everyone was really welcoming. I had opportunities to learn a wide variety of skills relating to structural engineering, including stuff I would never have been exposed to in college. I first heard about Siegfried from the Cal Poly virtual career fair. It seemed like a good company and they seemed to have everything happening with COVID well in control.” Thank you for all of your hard work Casey! We appreciate you!

The office has such a positive atmosphere, and everyone has been so welcoming since my first day.⠀ ⠀ During spring quarter (which was online), my friend had told me about a career fair coming up through zoom. I took a quick look at the companies listed under landscape architecture and saw Siegfried….

Last week, we got the chance to attend the grand opening celebration for the Upper Quarry Amphitheater Renovation project at UC Santa Cruz. The project is a true restoration and retrofit that required all of the teams’ skills to creatively and efficiently meet the numerous small challenges the site and the current codes provide. The terrain was challenging, the tree canopy heavy, the hazards plentiful, but like team players, the Siegfried team adapted to the evolving project conditions to reveal a beautiful, successful project to be enjoyed for years to come. Read more about the project here, and check out the photos from the ceremony below!
It is with the great sadness that we have to announce the heartbreaking news of the death of our colleague and friend, Robert (Bob) Granville Celum Jr. Bob was one of the original owners of Siegfried, who joined the company after serving in the Navy and graduating from Stanford in 1949. During his time at Siegfried, he played a crucial role in Siegfried’s past and current successes by bringing in clients such as the Morning Star Company and the Massie Company, who still do business with us to this very day. Also of note, year prior to retiring in 1995, Bob was awarded with the San Joaquin Engineer Council’s, distinguished “Engineer of the Year Award”. Beyond his awards and accomplishments,…
