Technology

Through personalized design, AEI’s Technology Consulting, Design, and Project Management Team enhances client communications and facility performance, from voice and data, audiovisual, and security technologies, to systems supporting Intelligent Building monitoring, metering, and management. Our technology solutions foster growth and accommodate change for technically complex facilities with a multitude of data-driven needs, providing turnkey implementation plans for full functionality from day one.

Technology systems are pervasive in modern buildings, enabling communication between systems and between people. The integration of audio and video presentation systems into a built environment requires clear understanding of user expectations and needs. Our audiovisual design staff initially work to understand each clients’ unique communication goals, then leverages the appropriate audiovisual capacities to realize them.
