Coronavirus Update/ Returning to the Office: AEI's is in the process of preparing our office for staff to return on a modified schedule, providing the City of Boston re-opening guidelines continue to move forward. During quarantine, AEI's staff have successfully worked remotely. Every staff member is equipped with the same equipment at home as they have in the office to ensure efficiency and seamless transitions between workstations. We will continue to work remotely and will provide a formal reopening date when it's available. At this time, only staff will be allowed in our space. Our contact information and policies on in person meetings and site visits remain the same as they have since early March. Please feel free to contact us if you have questions.
AEI designers and engineers use building information modeling (BIM) software to design and model building systems. BIM can calculate loads, solve difficult design issues, and enable designers the ability to visualize a structure before it is constructed. With 3D scanning and point cloud technology, AEI is able to model MEP/FP elements and existing conditions with a level of accuracy that was unheard of only 20 years ago! Every project brings new challenges, and sometimes a few obstacles. BIM not only enables better internal design coordination between disciplines to ensure a clash-free model, it also allows us to more accurately show clients and end users the intended use of their space.
3D modeling software gives AEI designers the tools required to produce clean, professional and presentation-quality drawings, which includes renderings used in virtual reality headset applications.
AEI’s BIM team, combined, holds more than 30 years of experience. With an extremely high standard for excellence, a desire to exceed our client’s expectations, and the drive to remain on the cutting edge, AEI strives to always master the latest technologies and produce technically sound, high-quality, and impressive designs.
AEI has an Autodesk subscription, enabling us to use the most up-to-date software from their AEC suite. The software we are currently using includes the following :
• NavisWorks Manage • Recap
• Trane Trace
• Visual Professional
