Founded in 1960, The IU Lilly Library is an important rare books and manuscript library located on the Indiana University Campus. The building was a complete interior renovation including the addition of a new elevator, office spaces, exhibition areas.
The building’s mechanical and electrical systems were original to the building and were part of a complete upgrade to a new, highly efficient and effective system. Plant chilled water and steam are used for a VAV system that maintains very strict temperature and humidity tolerances continuously throughout the year. Due to the extensive rare book collection, the building is designed to operate between 68-72 degrees with a 45-50 relative humidity year round. Energy Wheels, chilled water and clean steam were all utilized to maintain such tight tolerances.
