“AEI opened its Boston office in September, 2020. This region’s economic drivers -- healthcare, life sciences, and higher education – are a natural match for AEI’s core planning and design strengths. We are excited to bring AEI’s expansive high-performance design services to a city that has such a strong commitment to resilience and sustainable design.”
Boston is one of the oldest cities in the United States and home to many key events of the American Revolution.

The numerous colleges and universities in the region provide a highly educated workforce that supports thriving businesses in healthcare, biotechnology, finance, and information technology. Boston is a hub for innovation and entrepreneurship, serving as a launch pad for thousands of start-ups. Businesses and institutions in Boston invest heavily in environmental sustainability and the people that live here contribute to the highest average rate of philanthropy in the country.
Boston is an ideal place to live for outdoor enthusiasts. Beaches, including Cape Cod are within easy driving distance. Head north into Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine, and you will find the mountains for camping and hiking in the summer or skiing in the winter. During the summer, Boston is a highly visited stop for musicians with many outdoor concert venues, including Fenway Park, that host concerts to meet everyone’s musical taste. The large number of micro-breweries and restaurants create a thriving food scene, especially if you like seafood. If you are a sports fan, there aren’t many better places to live with the Patriots, Red Sox, Bruins and Celtics almost always competing for championships.
