Company History

The Vermont Secretary of State issued a Certificate of Incorporation for Dufresne & Associates, PC on February 19, 1999, which formalized the start of business for what would be known as Dufresne Group. Dufresne Group was founded by Robert E. Dufresne, PE (RED), who until 2014 was the sole stockholder. In 2018, ownership of the company changed to Naomi Johnson, PE who serves as President and Christina Haskins, PE and Andrea Day, PE who serve as Vice Presidents. With this ownership change, Dufresne Group is now 100% women-owned and is a registered Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) in Vermont and New Hampshire.

The past decade has been one of growth and transition with the addition of two new office locations in Vermont to better serve our clients and our staff. At Dufresne Group, family values are a priority. Our offices are located first near where area office managers live and secondly at key client locations. Driving an hour or two to work detracts both from work efficiency and most importantly from family time. Generally, if you are in Vermont, we have an office near you. Our wide area network is strong and independent of office locations. For instance, the largest project yet undertaken by Dufresne Group included $32,000,000 of water works and infrastructure replacement for the Town of St. Johnsbury. Engineers and technicians from all four offices completed portions of this work seamlessly using advanced design software as well as tried and true project review and management techniques. The project made the cover of the June 2014 issue of the New England Water Works Journal.

Dufresne Group employs seven licensed Professional Engineers as well as several highly qualified project engineers, field engineers and technicians. Our expertise has expanded to include all aspects of water treatment and distribution system design, wastewater treatment and collection system design, water and wastewater system modeling, water and wastewater master plans, infiltration and inflow investigations, water quality investigations, stormwater collection and treatment, asset management, permitting, funding assistance, topographic surveying, sidewalk & pathway feasibility studies and design, erosion prevention and sediment control, and construction services.

We continue to look for areas to learn and grow to better serve our clients. If you would like to learn more about Dufresne Group please browse our website or feel free to contact us directly.
