The Sistine Chapel’s last HVAC system, installed over 20 years ago, was no match for a dramatic rise in visitors to the well-known tourist destination. This month’s cover article details the new HVAC and environmental control system, which debuted October 2014, to preserve the chapel’s majestic artwork. The design had to account for air temperature, air humidity, airborne pollutants and sound level. Other articles include a look at BACnet’s 20th anniversary, an award-winning island hospital, and reusing existing HVAC systems and components.
