Blount County Archival Preservation Grant

The installation of new climate control and lighting in a renovated facility designed to preserve archival records, dating from the late 1700s to the present, pertaining to the history and culture of eastern Tennessee.

An implementation project for the reallocation of space to reduce energy consumption, improve and stabilize environmental conditions of the historical and cultural records collection of Blount County Records Management and Archives (hereafter referred to as the Archives.) Blount County's documents are currently stored in two locations which are not conducive to records storage. The Archives is requesting funding to help relocate the records by renovating a new (seventy-five hundred square feet) location at the Blount County Operation Center that will house all records collection in one place. Our stategy is to extend Blount County's Bee-Green program by installing an energy efficient HVAC system and make needed renovations in the Archive's location at the Operations Center. The advisory team has used environmetal monitoring data, space usage, and an area within the building's envelope to create a plan for a climate management system that will be energy efficient.
