For the AEC/RE industry, this time of year is truly awards season!

I had the privilege of emceeing SMPS CT’s Marketing and Communication awards. I want to give a special shout out to CIL who was the entertainment sponsor!  The pre-networking party had three tall paper mache-type characters you could hang out with.  Check out page 12 to see what I mean.

SMPS Boston also celebrated their Marketing and Communication Awards this month! HP account executives, Mark Kelly and Tom D’Intinosanto, attended the event held on June 6. Check out the winners on page 24.

High-Profile was the media sponsor for this year’s Connecticut Building Congress’s Project Team Awards event, which always draws a big crowd! Check out the winning teams on page 16 

I’m so excited to share LAB LSA’s conceptual design, The Blue Necklace, that addresses Boston’s rising sea levels while presenting a plan for a brand new waterfront with more urban development opportunity.  This article is the first of a series that we will be running on the “New Boston Waterfront”.  Turn to page 26 to learn more!  


Cannabis anyone?  Check out Emily Langner’s spotlight on the new cannabis cultivation and manufacturing facility in Lee, Mass. The technology that goes into planning and designing this type of plant is fascinating.  Read more on page 36. 




In a message from NESEA’s new executive director, Miriam Aylward thanked her predecessor, Jennifer Marrapese, for “her mentorship over the past five years and her continued dedication to this organization.”

Aylward said, “When I find myself feeling overwhelmed by the task at hand, I am anchored by the vision articulated in our current strategic plan: We envision a built environment in the Northeast that is climate neutral, adaptive and resilient, energy independent, architecturally inspiring, and supportive of connection and community.”

Data from Economic Impacts of Commercial Real Estate, published annually by the NAIOP Research Foundation, ranks Massachusetts as the No. 7 state in the U.S. for contributions to state GDP created by office real estate development.
