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 Life Sciences Laboratory II (LSL2) Fit-out, Amherst, Mass.
With a goal of providing cutting-edge space for interdisciplinary research, the Life Sciences Laboratory II building on the University of Massachusetts, Amherst campus features both laboratory and laboratory support space that includes a growth chamber laboratory, a freezer farm laboratory, an FTMS laboratory, and a server room. Working in the 98,000 SF South Wing, AEI provided plumbing and fire protection engineering services for three floors, and another partial floor of the fit-out. AEI designed and selected pre-action systems serving the human testing laboratory and MRI suite, and designed the lab waste and plumbing systems serving the laboratory fixtures, fume hoods and incubators. In addition, work involved high purity water systems, lab gas piping systems, and animal watering systems. All plumbing and fire protection system design was carefully coordinated to limit interference with a fully functional MRI suite.
