Bob Sherman


I love to challenge myself and my team to evolve our designs to be the most effective they can be for our owners. We are always striving to balance energy efficiency with simplicity, maintainability, cost, and aesthetics for the most elegant design solutions possible.”

Bob Sherman has a combination of professional dedication, high personal productivity, and demonstrated leadership capabilities. He has been the lead engineer on many large projects from the beginning of his career. His passion for creating well-designed, energy efficient, easily maintainable buildings was a key factor in being named as a Principal.

With a diversity of projects that includes Higher Ed Research Labs and Healthcare, Bob has participated on over two million square feet of functionally complex facilities. He is an expert in decoupled systems, pairing dedicated outside air units with radiant heating and cooling, active and passive chilled beams. Bob’s design incorporates a combination of strategies to meet the energy goals of a given project in a way that is easily understandable and maintenance friendly.

Bob is a leader among AEI’s national Science & Technology group. He is routinely called upon to help conceptualize and peer review some of AEI’s most complicated buildings from around the system. He is a thought leader and mentor for younger staff.

Bob has presented at ASHE PDC, ASHRAE, Labs21, and SCUP conferences on multiple topics, and has written a variety of articles, including “Do You Need an Engineering Lab Planner?” for the R&D Magazine’s Laboratory Design Newsletter.
