Beautiful. Functional. Contextual.
We believe architecture and engineering is a canvas to express what’s important to an organization, an opportunity to represent values and give meaning to vision. From improving a layout to enable teamwork, to incorporating new energy efficient designs for overall efficiency, to strengthening staff satisfaction and identification with organizational core values thru the aesthetic, the built environment has impact. With the strategy and innovation of design, we represent the best of our client’s values and beliefs and enable long-term goals.

To us, sustainable design is a way of thinking and understanding how our designs impact the environment. We believe that sustainable design isn’t a system of points, but a way of thinking about design and understanding the relationship of our designs with the environment, project vision, and client mission. We discuss sustainability goals at project inception, incorporating thoughtful energy-efﬁcient systems, materials and designs from day one.
We work to understand how spaces ﬁt together to mold functional and aesthetically-pleasing designs that represent values and give meaning to vision.
Listening to people’s stories and observing their interactions, we craft spaces that enhance their well-being and support our client’s missions, better enabling them to fulfill their goals and live out their passions.
Merging function with beauty, we aspire to elevate experiences and enrich lives with the impact of aesthetics. Color, materials, furnishing and space organization impact how we live in a very real way. We take care of people by incorporating design details and features that enhance their experience of a space.
Diving into energy calculations is our idea of a good time. Our exploration of the art and science of lighting translates into attractive, comfortable, flexible and energy-efficient designs to enhance the experience of a space. Our designers investigate new and innovative ways to light a space to support the vision of a project, enhancing ambiance and occupant experience.
Investigating the latest energy efficient systems, scoping out holistic HVAC concepts, and developing designs to support a healthy building – that’s our focus to provide maximum levels of comfort while meeting code-required airflow (air changes) with energy conservation always in mind.
Drawing from an architectural engineering background, our engineers understand the delicate balance between building systems and aesthetics. By visualizing spatial relationships to make sure that everything fits in the provided space, our engineers deliver their art by weaving ductwork and piping in buildings and incorporating the systems, sizing all equipment and providing the required connections to make it all work together in energy efficient harmony.
Passionate about merging theory-driven electrical engineering with a people centric view to designing buildings, our electrical engineers develop solutions that power and light buildings to connect occupants with one another and all the systems, data and technology ever present and evolving in our lives. We embrace the challenge of complex infrastructure and steer our efforts into designs that meet future facility distribution needs to meet short-term operational needs and long-term vision.
Focused on delivering healthy, safe buildings for people while protecting the environment, our team designs efficient and code-compliant hot and cold water, sanitary and vent, storm water, and compressed air systems. Our proven portfolio includes “traditional” systems as well as the engineering and design of specialized research and healthcare plumbing systems.
AE Works’ design expertise extends far beyond the traditional ﬁre sprinkler system design. We match every ﬁre protection design challenge with the right, integrated response. Using leading- edge technology, our team is able to develop unique design strategies as well as validate alternative design solutions for every challenge during design thru construction.
AE Works strives to provide each facility a solution to ensure lives are protected and building codes are met without compromising design integrity.
Our team of professional engineers and registered communications distribution designers understand the infrastructure required to interconnect the myriad of systems present in today’s data driven buildings. We are proﬁcient in integrating complex cabling and networks seamlessly into a building structure. We are at the forefront of an ever changing industry, designing building systems now to meet the needs of tomorrow. We provide integrated systems solutions, leveraging each system’s capabilities by maximizing interconnection and data sharing to create smarter buildings.
