This paper shows how we can work step by step to design appropriate climate control systems. We know enough about climate specifications to reduce risks significantly. The specifications for preservation should be wheighed against other factors in a risk assessment, methods used in museums need to be adapted for this purpose. A climate analysis will give the basic conditions for climate control. A climate control strategy should use a combination of passive control, ventilation, heating and humidity control to achieve the desired indoor climate at low cost and with minimal impact on the building.
