The LAC Preservation Centre: What's there?
Mechanical Plant (heating, environmental control)
Heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems are located in a mechanical plant designed to be separate from, but connected to, the records storage and laboratory facilities. This feature separates and isolates the sensitive laboratory and storage functions of the building.
The mechanical plant, on the left, is a separate structure isolating building machinery from preservation activities.
Three diesel generators provide emergency back-up electrical power to essential systems.
