Consultants Harley Haddow appointed M&E contractor Munro Building Services for this prestigious contract, which included an extensive suite of archives rooms operating at different conditions to suit the precious items and works of art.
From newspaper cuttings and film to Henry Moore’s original drawings and negatives, it was critical that the correct temperature and humidity was maintained so a combination of chilled water and DX CD3 close control systems were specified, to be supplied by Heronhill.
In the Negative cold store archive room, working on behalf of Munro Building Services, Adcock Refrigeration & Air Conditioning installed a DX CD3 system which needed to maintain 7°C.
