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 Morrill Hall Geoscience Building, Amherst, Mass.
AEI performed mechanical and electrical engineering in five spaces of the Morrill complex, which included conversion of a teaching lab to a 50-person fixed seat lecture hall and renovation of four research labs for use as teaching lab spaces. An independent HVAC system was designed to meet the increased ventilation requirements of the lecture hall. Changes required retrofit of the existing sprinkler and fire alarm systems in the building. The work was completed in an occupied building and required careful phasing to maintain building occupancy.
