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.
University of Massachusetts Fine Arts Center Lobby Addition, Amherst, Mass.
Architectural Engineers provided MEP/FP engineering services for the addition of a significant architectural glass enclosed lobby area at the entrance to the theater and gallery space. The lobby’s HVAC system was designed to accommodate 500 people. The building included cast glass that was equipped with thermistors to direct conditioned air against glass preventing condensation, hydronic radiant heating embedded in the topping slab, and fiber optic lighting.
