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.
Arlington Community Safety Building, Arlington, Mass.
After completing a masterplan that involved an inspection of existing systems and the conceptual identification of required upgrades and cost estimates, Architectural Engineers commenced MEP/FP design and CA services in two phases to allow continued occupancy throughout construction. The ADA compliant building features holding cells with a sally port, a fitness center, a briefing room/training center, and a renovated gun range. Work included exterior lighting, new exterior intake and exhaust hoods, plumbing drain body replacement, and a new sprinkler system with anti-ligature sprinkler heads in the holding cells. The existing building was upgraded to enhance police operations and provide community members with Arlington-based historical artifacts in an open, day-lit, and secure environment.
