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.

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.

Beacon Cinema, Pittsfield, Mass.

Because historic film is tremendously flammable, fire suppression was enhanced in the projection room to protect this National Park Service Historic Building.

Architectural Engineers provided MEP/FP design services for upgrades to the $5M, 75,000 SF downtown cinema in accordance with strict National Park Service historic restoration requirements. As part of its work, AEI designed new water, gas and electric services, designed mechanical systems for the theater, projection rooms, lobby, elevators and escalators, and coordinated trades with the acoustical consultants. The former multi-use building was converted to include six stadium-style theaters, a restaurant, and retail and office spaces.
