Back in 2000...

CEI Boston started in the fall of 2000 as a part time venture between friends and partners, Peter Banks and Brian Caffrey. The company began to grow by completing dozens of major supermarket renovations. Then, by hiring experienced technicians and investing in the latest saw cutting equipment, CEI began to establish their saw cutting business. By providing quality work, within budget and being accountable to their clients CEI saw steady growth through the 2000’s. In 2007, CEI constructed a 15,000 square foot headquarters in Norfolk, MA to better service its employees and clients. CEI continued to add services that clients were requesting. This created our full-service model of providing turnkey demolition, saw cutting, concrete construction, site excavation and utility work. This model provides a single source of contact and helps accelerate schedules and eliminate scope overlap. CEI continues to service the New England market by employing a skilled group of professionals dedicated to providing a high level of service, building quality projects safely and on time.
