The Chicago Field Museum’s Collections Resource Center houses over 30million specimens and objects, more than a third of the museum’s vast collections. Using utility incentive dollars to help fund this project, the Syserco Midwest Team replaced the Center’s obsolete and inefficient systems with the latest controls technology. These upgrades will reduce energy consumption, tighten space temperature and humidity conditions, allowing for more precise monitoring of environmental conditions for the many delicate artifacts, and streamline facility operations.
The Syserco Midwest Team worked closely with an energy consultant to implement energy conservation measures throughout this project that will help reduce the Museum’s utility costs into the future. Using their new building automation system, the Museum can monitor total electrical usage as well as track their savings in real time. The new Syserco installed systems will preserve important pieces of history while operating efficiently for amore sustainable future.
