Historic New England Haverhill Center Environment and Storage Project

Improved storage of Historic New England's decorative art and household furnishing collections through the creation of a room-within-a-room storage pod in the museum's centralized collections and conservation center. Some 22,000 artifacts that document everyday life in New England would be rehoused in a mobile high density storage system within the pod, which will be designed to efficiently maintain environmental conditions for the collections.

Historic New England's Haverhill Environment and Storage Project will upgrade environmental controls in its collections and conservation center located in Haverhill, Massachusetts. The building's environment threatens the well-being of the collections due to wide temperature fluctuations, low wintertime humidity, and mold growth due to water infiltration through leaky windows. This project will mitigate environmental threats to the collection by not only rehousing priority objects in an interior microclimate storage solution but also secure the building envelope against further water leakage and conditions that will compromise the objects stored here.
