Scott Easton


It is incredibly rewarding to use AEI's design and engineering expertise to create places that people enjoy and celebrate. I’ve been involved in almost 200 projects at AEI, and picking a favorite is like trying to name a favorite child - impossible.”

Scott Easton, a principal with AEI, leads the firm’s commercial, cultural, and public practices, which include historic preservation, corporate office complexes, museums, and performing arts facilities. His experience encompasses significant design assignments for research, higher education, and healthcare facilities. Scott’s education was as an architectural engineer, but his special interest in lighting systems led to the development of the firm’s in-house lighting design studio, PIVOTAL®.

Scott is a guest lecturer for professional development and engineering courses at the University of Wisconsin, teaching electrical engineering. He has chaired the subcommittee for the Illuminating Engineering Society, responsible for developing a new technical guideline, “Lighting for Scientific Laboratories and Research Facilities.” During his career, Scott has had the pleasure of working on projects for the National Park Service (NPS) as project manager and principal-in-charge. His work for the NPS includes such indefinite delivery contract projects as the Keweenaw Union Building and the Benjamin Franklin Life and Legacy Museum.
