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.

Mass College of Art and Design, Tower Building Fire Alarm Systems Replacement, Boston, Mass.

AEI designed a new fire alarm and voice evacuation system involving an emergency generator, upgraded lighting, and a new fire pump base, which included a new fire command center room and BDA system for radio communications.  To meet current code requirements, controls were added to auto-release stair doors, duct smoke detectors were added to the mechanical equipment for unit shut down, and door opener holds were added to maintain access in corridors during a life safety event.
