Bergman Commemorates 40th Anniversary with Year-Long Celebration


Rochester Chamber Parnter member Bergmann is celebrating 40 years of providing architecture, engineering and planning services to clients across the nation. To kick off a year-long series of activities, Bergmann unveiled a commemorative logo, which can be viewed on the firm’s YouTube channel, as well as a theme for its 40th year that reflects on the firm’s history while looking ahead to the future: “Inspired People. Inspiring Design.”

Throughout the year, Bergmann’s social media channels will share stories of inspiration that spotlight people and projects from each office. Special 40th anniversary events for employees will also take place throughout 2020. “Every day, our team members find inspiration in a variety of sources that lead to unique solutions, whether it’s designing new workspaces, taking a new approach with community planning initiatives, or solving a transportation challenge,” said Pietro (Pete) Giovenco, President and CEO. “We take great pride in celebrating our people, their creativity and the impact they have on our clients and communities, especially at this important milestone in our company’s history.”

Donald J. Bergmann, P.E., who passed away on December 25, 2019, founded Bergmann Associates in 1980. The firm was a product of his vision for a new approach in consulting engineering, one tailored to client relationships and full-service solutions. The firm started as a civil and transportation design company with a handful of employees, and over four decades has grown to a full-service firm with more than 400 employees in 15 locations across the Northeast, Midwest and Atlantic regions.
