Sustainable Preservation at Museum Offsite Collection Storage

Installation of a central HVAC system with digital controls for the 14,000 square-foot offsite storage space of the Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum, which preserves and interprets the history of the Pikes Peak region.

The Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum requests a $290,000 National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Sustaining Cultural Heritage Collection implementation grant to support its $658,933 project, Sustainable Preservation at Museum Offsite Collection Storage. This project aims to improve the environmental conditions of the CSPM’s offsite collection storage facility through installation of an efficient HVAC system with digital central controls, and low velocity fans. Critical project outcomes include: improved stability in the temperature and relative humidity readings; improved energy efficiency; a state-of-the-art space that will allow the museum to continue to collect and preserve artifacts for decades to come; and improved scholarship of museum patrons through display of its collections and associated programming.
