An implementation project to install a new building automation system that would enable more effective control and continuous monitoring of environmental conditions for the protection of the museum's collection of 90,000 works of art. The collection includes significant holdings of European and American works on paper, African art, Asian art, American fine and decorative arts, and European and American modern and contemporary works.

The Baltimore Museum of Art (BMA) requests $350,000 toward the $1.5 million cost of upgrading its outdated Building Automation System (BAS), which controls the temperature and humidity levels required to preserve the Museum's outstanding collection of 90,000 works of art. The new BAS will maximize the impact of a decade of improvements to mechanical, lighting, and electrical systems that have complemented an energy conservation program, ongoing improvements to the building envelope, and a proactive energy procurement program. The new BAS is the next step in the Museum's commitment to sustainability and efficiency in the stewardship of its collection. The replacement of the BAS is part of a $24.5 million capital program scheduled to conclude in 2014, the BMA's 100th Anniversary.
