Rather than a costly active smoke-control system, a DDC control panel was installed adjacent to the main fire alarm control panel to allow the products of combustion to be quickly vented after a fire event. Another major collaborative decision centered on the capacity of the emer- gency generator. Instead of providing full HVAC redundancy and emergency power, the project team decided to super-insulate the building envelope and close off the storage areas in the event of a power outage. Museum staff developed procedures to limit access to storage areas in the event of an emergency, cued by a series of responses from the building control system.

Another warning light over the outside of the doors stops people from entering. Like a picnic cooler, the rooms will maintain design conditions for long periods of time. In the case of a very long outage, the temperature and humidity will slowly stabilize to out- door conditions. Collection managers on this project were most concerned with the impact of a rapid cycling of temperature and humidity on the integrity of artifacts, so this approach was considered to be a reasonable compromise between the need to control costs and long-term energy use, and the Institution’s responsibility to preserve artifacts.

Provincial examples include Guelph Museumsand the Oakville Museum. Increasing the Museum’s collection storage space three-fold and renovating the existing lower level will greatly aidin the long-term preservation of the Museum’s collections.The current need to overfill shelving or use inaccessiblelocations for storage (i.e., tops of shelves, ceiling rafters)and aisle floors will be eliminated, and regular inspectionscan be implemented more easily. Eliminating the mixtureof high-risk activities—collection handling, research, con-servation treatments, exhibition preparation and publicconsultation—in the current storage spaces also supportsproper pest management and collection security.

His advice, when weighing up the project constraints, was to leave as much of the existing HVAC system as possible in the areas to be refurbished, and only add in a small unit to supply the new building. Care has been taken to minimise windows where possible, in order to reduce heat loss/gain. This was particularly important, given that Canberra has hot summers upwards of 32˚C, and cold winters that go down to -10˚C. The AEP is due for completion in mid-2013.

Regional Updates and Member NewsNorthern California and Nevada Member Ottawa Member RegionRegion Federal Government to Create the Canadian MuseumBy Joe Brennan, Chair of History By Guy Larocque On October 16, Canada’s Minister of Canadian Heritage and Official Languages announced the federal government’s intention to introduce legislation creating the Canadian Museum of History: the first in a series of measures on the road to Canada’s 150th birthday in 2017. This will be done through amendments to Canada’s Museums Act, which will change the name and mandate of the Canadian Museum of Civilization. The announcement was made at the Canadian Museum of Civilization in the presence of the Museum’s Board of Trustees, Museum staff, eminent Canadian historians, and members of historical associations from across Canada. This year is seen as the start of the five-year countdown to Canada’s 150th birthday in 2017.
