Ameico Headquarters are located in an Historic building that was built in 1917 for Southern New England Telephone, as a switchboard facility. After falling into disrepair, AMEICO founder, Peter Kahane purchased this property in 2012. In partnership with State and Federal historic preservation trusts, this building was lovingly restored for and adaptive reuse project.

Solar panels supplying the bulk of buildings energy demand. Panels are carefully placed, so as not to impact the historic appearance of building. Dual flush toilets, low flow showerheads and faucets. A full shower and changing room, encouraging employees to run or bike to work
There is something about parenthood that gives us a sense of history and a deeply rooted desire to send on into the next generation the great things we have discovered about life. And part of that is the desire to instill in our children the love of science, of learning and particularly the love of nature.
