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 Whitmore Hall Mechanical and Electrical Upgrades, Amherst, Mass.

As prime consultant, AEI provided MEP/FP study, design and CA services, and through our consultants, architecture, structural and environmental engineering, for complex HVAC and electrical upgrades including the conversion of a former server room to swing office space, and replacement of the existing constant volume dual duct mixing boxes and existing main electrical gear. The electrical replacement included existing conduit feeding the distribution panels throughout the building. AEI identified additional systems impacted by code-mandated requirements. The ceilings needed to be replaced and asbestos was abated in a phased approach to keep the building occupied.
