The American Antiquarian Society owns a major independent research library that houses the largest collection of books, pamphlets, broadsides, newspapers, periodicals, music, and graphic arts material printed through 1876. In addition to these works, the library also holds manuscripts, digital resources, and reference works related to all aspects of American history and culture before the twentieth century.
HTS New England was chosen as the basis of design for the renovation of this library, with the goal of saving on installation costs in the short term, and energy costs in the long term. Because of these requirements and the tight space constraints, 10 Haakon Custom AHUs were installed, totaling 42,970 CFM. All units were designed to fit into the existing brick basement and make it through a standard 36″ door.
