This workshop/conference is one of the first of its kind in the US

during and after new construction and/or renovation of cultural
institutions with collections. Aspects of the complex design and
construction process that directly affect collections will be
discussed and evaluated including the design process; building
placement; site drainage; landscaping materials; loading docks and
collection movement; freight elevators; storage vaults; construction
materials and off gassing; vapor barriers; HVAC system upgrades and
replacement; natural and artificial light levels; window coatings
and coverings; traffic patterns and crowd control; security issues
during construction; renovating a historic building vs. building a
new structure; checks and balances systems and much more.  Outside
experts will also discuss specialty issues including HVAC systems,
security, insurance, and etc.
