Last summer, Siegfried had the pleasure of having Georgia Bracchi as a landscape design intern. This year, she decided to come back! When asked what prompted her to return to Siegfried, she said, “I gained so much valuable information as an intern at Siegfried. Having been exposed to landscape architecture application in a professional practice setting, I built new skills that my classes at Poly wouldn’t have offered me. Siegfried has a very welcoming as well as professional setting, and since California’s reopening, I was looking forward to site visits and more work in the field. I think it’s very important to observe the connection between the design and actual implementation happening at the construction site to see the process…
In September of 2020, we shared a rendering of the plans for Miner Avenue’s Complete Streets project. Today, we are sharing some progress photos of the project in motion! This project is a 10-block rehabilitation that spans from Center Street to the UPRR underpass. Improvements include lane reduction from four to two lanes and Class II bicycle lanes; the addition of median islands and a roundabout; traffic signal modifications at the signalized intersections; streetlights; as well as wider sidewalks with pedestrian and bicycle amenities. The roundabout will assist with traffic flow and add a beautiful landscape feature to Downtown Stockton. Keep an eye out for more progress photos down the road as the dreams for this project come to life!
Extra! Extra! Read all about it! Check out the new Galaxy Quest Play Structure featured in Stockton’s staple, Pixie Woods Park! Siegfried donated civil and structural engineering, landscape architecture, and surveying services for Pixie Woods’ newest playground. We worked closely with the City of Stockton and the Pixie Woods Board to prepare plans and designs for the new structure, as well as the work for the fill material surrounding the playground. To preserve the structure long-term, Siegfried also designed a shade structure to cover the area. Due to Covid-19, the reveal of the structure was delayed. However, we are pleased to share that Pixie Woods is now OPEN Thursday through Sunday from 10am to 4pm, and the new Galaxy Quest…
Today, we celebrate International Women in Engineering Day (INWED). INWED is an international awareness campaign celebrating the performance and achievements of women in the field of engineering. This day provides an outstanding opportunity to enhance the profile of women engineers and highlight the opportunities available for women interested in pursuing an engineering career. At Siegfried, we value all of our engineers, but today, we celebrate the women who make a difference in this field and within our company, and inspire others to do the same.
Siegfried worked with the City of Ripon to repair a damaged outfall storm pipe. With rainy weather on the way, Siegfried was tasked with repairing this damaged outfall pipe quickly. Utilizing our team of structural engineers, civil engineers, and surveyors, Siegfried went to work and was able to see this project from start to finish in a little over five weeks. The improvement to this damaged storm pipe included a flared end to help direct the flow of water, rock embankment, and vegetation removal. Please check out these before, during, and after pictures!
Intern Highlight! “Hello, my name is Amjad. I am a senior at the University of the Pacific studying Civil Engineering. Being able to work alongside 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!
