About Alpine Restoration
Established in 1992 by Bruno Gubetta, Alpine Building Restoration began humbly with small residential projects in historic homes. The young company quickly established a favorable reputation in Vermont, and as a result, were awarded larger commercial projects. Once recognized by some of Vermont’s most respected designers and architects, Alpine became one of the most sought after masonry restoration companies in New England.
About Bruno Gubetta
Growing up on a small farm in Northwest Connecticut, Bruno learned a “boots on the ground” work ethic from his father, an Italian immigrant and experienced Master Mason. In college, Bruno worked as a mason tender while he earned an Associates Degree in Environmental Science and Bachelor’s Degree in Biochemistry. But Bruno’s passion for masonry never left him. In 1978, he also became a Master Mason, and then a principal partner in a well known Toronto restoration company. The company’s largest project, the Toronto Sky Dome, schooled him in cutting-edge construction. The massive undertaking also gave him first-hand knowledge and know-how in meeting deadlines and demands of large scale projects.
Today Bruno’s passion for historic building preservation in Vermont and a dedication to excellence have earned him the coveted position as Vermont’s preferred Master Mason. His team — also qualified masons or trained craftsmen — take pride in their attention to detail. The company’s philosophy has proven crucial in time sensitive and historic projects.
Bruno’s personal interests include a life-long dedication to health and fitness. As a veteran skier in Vermont, he is a past Chairman of the Board of Examiners, PSIA Eastern Division, and Eastern Demonstration Team Member. He is also a highly skilled mountain biker and road cyclist.
Bruno is also a commercial instrument pilot in fixed wing and helicopter aircraft. He shares his talent with his son Kris, also a commercial pilot. Bruno resides in Waterbury with his girlfriend.
