    Abstract:
    The Improved Humanities Collections Environment Control Project will improve the current environmental conditions at the Dakota Discovery Museum for humanities collections objects in storage and exhibit areas. The project will include the upgrade of the existing heating, ventilation and air conditioning system control software, the installation of steam humidification for the lower level storage area, modifications to the boiler intake and exhaust pipes to prevent boiler failures, the relocation of a thermostat/humidistat from a non-collection area to an exhibit area and activation of roof top unit economizers to improve air quality. These improvements and modifications will provide for better and more reliable control of the museum environment, allowing the thousands of collections items to be utilized for exhibit and research purposes for the public.
    Notes:
    An implementation project to modify environmental conditions in a museum housing a collection of art and artifacts that document the history of North and South Dakota and the region.
