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.
Framingham State University Hemenway Hall Addition and Renovation, Framingham, Mass.
2016 BSA Accessible Design Award; 49 Fume Hoods Largest Installation in the world at the time
Architectural Engineers provided plumbing and fire protection design and construction administration for the $60 million expansion and renovation of the campus science center. AEI designed protected water, acid waste, wet sprinkler, plumbing sanitary waste, lab waste, venting, domestic and protected hot and cold water recirculation, and emergency wash tempered recirculated water piping systems. The plumbing design included compressed air, vacuum, and natural gas systems specific to laboratory regulations. A four-story central common integrates two buildings to create one unified science complex, and the building features 49 filtered fume hoods, which at the time was the largest installation of fume hoods in the world.
