Co-Owner and Architect
Steven joined Cannatelli Builders in the Summer of 2021 as a Co-Owner and fills the role of Chief Architect & Construction Officer.
With 35 years of experience, Steven possesses a unique expertise as both an AIA Architect and a Builder. This allows Steven to work closely with each project Architect, Engineers and his team of subcontractors, in coordinating drawings prior to construction. This team building approach creates a more positive experience for our clients and ultimately saves costs and reduces the overall project schedules.
Steven’s career in construction started when he was very young. He grew up working on his father’s construction sites before studying Architecture. After receiving a Bachelor of Architecture degree in 1988, from Syracuse University, and studying 3 semesters in Florence, Italy, he accepted a position with Centerbrook Architects & Planners in Essex, CT. During his 13 years at the firm, Steven honed his skills in all aspects of design, construction, advancing technologies, and most importantly, his professional development and team-building skills. After his father passed in 2001, Steven started Tiezzi Construction, LLC, in honor of his father, which he ran for 20 years, before joining Cannatelli Builders. Steven’s knowledge and attention to detail are unparalleled, which enabled him to build unique, high-end residential and commercial projects in CT before heading to FL.
Outside of the office, Steven enjoys spending time with his family, cooking, cultivating his garden, racing go-carts and traveling to Italy.
