AEI is a certified women-owned WBE/DBE engineering firm operating from Boston, Massachusetts. We also hold WBE status in Connecticut and Rhode Island.
Founded in 1985 by Robin Greenleaf, AEI provides innovative solutions to engineering problems in the building systems industry. We do so in in the spirit of extraordinary teamwork and partnership. Our project experience includes heating and air conditioning, plumbing, electrical lighting and power systems, instrumentation, and fire protection engineering. Because we have assembled all of these disciplines in one firm, we assure a well-coordinated design product. AEI provides professional support throughout the construction phase, which enables us to provide an immediate response to construction-related issues.
AEI has been certified by the state of Massachusetts as a women business enterprise (WBE) and disadvantaged business (DBE) since 1986.
The principals of AEI are registered professional engineers in all of the New England states and are licensed in mechanical, electrical, fire protection, and civil/ structural engineering. Our principals and project managers average more than 25 years’ experience, and all principals are LEED accredited professionals.
AEI fully embraces the principles of sustainable design and strives to incorporate environmental responsibility, resource efficiency, occupant comfort, and community sensitivity into our engineering solutions.
Our portfolio includes virtually every project type – laboratories, academic facilities, state office, public safety, municipal buildings, airport terminals, courthouses, transportation / infrastructure, commercial high-rise office buildings, corporate headquarters, tenant interiors, residential towers, libraries and museums. Our clients include federal and state agencies, municipalities and towns, and private corporations and owners.
We understand that each project requires a fresh perspective that requires active participation from all stake holders. We understand that collaboration requires an ability to listen, a willingness to pursue alternatives, and a knack for knowing what questions to ask at the appropriate time.
We have LEED accredited staff in every discipline and are committed to educating our clients about the latest relevant engineering solutions. We are active in many professional associations and serve in leadership roles of ACEC, ACEC/MA, IESNA and PWC Boston.
AEI began priming work in 2002 and often enjoy reciprocal relationships with many of our clients. Sitting on both sides of the table enables us to practice from a unique perspective. As a sub-consultant, we understand the challenges our prime clients face, and we work towards making our interactions easier. As a prime consultant, we recognize our sub-consultants focus and work to bring them into a more integrated project experience.
