July 16, 2013, Boston, MA--On July 16, 2013, Kleinfelder leaders cut the ribbon dedicating the Kleinfelder Libary at The Engineering Center in Boston.  Bill Siegel, PE Kleinfelder President and CEO, based in San Diego and Joe Cormier, Kleinfelder's Vice President and Regional Delivery Manager, based in Cambridge, MA joined Dean Groves, PE, Chair of The Engineering Center Education Trust and TECET staff for the ribbon cutting.


The Kleinfelder Libary is one of three meeting rooms in the Aldrich Center at The Engineering Center in Boston at One Walnut Street.  The building is conveniently located steps from the Massachusetts State House, Boston’s financial district and public transportation.  Overlooking the Boston Common, our meeting space is perfect for smaller group meetings and events. 


The Aldrich Center in this historic building at One Walnut Street, is part of The Engineering Center.  The building has a long history of serving local dignitaries. Designed by Charles Bulfinch in 1804, the renowned architect of the Massachusetts State House and US Capitol in Washington, DC, the building is officially as the Phillips Winthrop House and is recognized as The Engineering Center.  A historical landmark located on Boston’s Beacon Hill, was the residence of some prominent historical figures such as John Phillips, first Mayor of Boston, his son Wendell, the famous abolitionist, and Thomas Lindall Winthrop, Lieutenant Governor of Massachusetts in the early 1800s. In 1998, the first floor of The Engineering Center was dedicated as the Aldrich Center to honor to Dr. Harl P. Aldrich, Jr. for his significant leadership and generous contributions towards the vision of providing a permanent home for the engineering and related professions a reality.


The Engineering Center Education Trust's (TECET) mission includes promoting engineering and land surveying careers and excellence in these professions. TECET staff provides association management services, implements the policies of the TECET Board, operates our Aldrich Center for meetings, provides educational programs and advocates on behalf of the engineering and land surveying professions.
