RARE CONDITIONS – Calvin College’s Heritage Hall archival library stores a growing collection of rare books, manuscripts, photographs and other institutional archives. The college worked with C2AE to implement phased upgrades and expansions of HVAC systems and lighting to meet archival library standards, increase storage for collection, and redesign of the entrance and study area. Environmental design conditions and associated mechanical systems were chosen to properly preserve the archived collections.  

With the college enterprise in mind, C2AE developed several implementation phases to allow the college to move forward with each phase as funding allows and minimize the impact on adjacent library spaces.
