Event description

Description

This MAPLE visit will look at the experiences of the Herefordshire Archive and Records Centre (HARC) staff in designing and working in a building which adopts a passive approach to environmental control. The building opened in 2015 so this is an opportunity to reflect not only on the initial challenges to be overcome but also the ongoing impact of carrying out typical collection management tasks and providing services to visitors in an energy efficient building.
