Coronavirus Update/ Returning to the Office: AEI now IMEG 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 now IMEG'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 New Haven Aquaculture Laboratory, New Haven, Conn.
As part of it's larger project at the Boathouse at Canal Dock Park, AEI also provided MEP/FP resilient design services in the Aquaculture Laboratory that involved locating building systems above the flood plain level in the event of a hurricane-strength storm surge. The lab includes a head tank system and a recirculating aquaculture system. Fortification measures were accomplished by constructing a raised platform across the first level for occupant circulation around the tanks and relocating equipment at necessary heights above the flood elevation.
