In this era of sustainability and energy use, best-practice expectations for building systems are rapidly evolving. Museum and gallery facilities are under increasing pressure to reduce their environmental impact and be run more efficiently, whilst the objective to provide the optimum environment for exhibition display continues to be the key interest. There are also opportunities for museums and galleries to benefit from government initiatives to improve their facilities in all aspects whilst addressing the sustainability objectives.
Prepared by consultancy firms Steensen Varming and International Conservation Services, A Practical Guide for Sustainable Climate Control and Lighting in Museums and Galleries is informed by national and international theory and practice.
In 2014 M&G QLD and the project partners invited feedback on A Practical Guide for Sustainable Climate Control and Lighting in Museums and Galleries, which was used to inform this revised second edition of the resource.
