After almost four long months, we will open the doors again on Monday at. 8.00

At first glance, the change after four months of hard work is not impressive, but the observant visitor will soon notice the changes.

What has happened
Looking up into the open space one will notice the glass walls that have been put up all around the second floor. This will isolate the group workplaces and the quiet area from the events and other noisy activities that may take place on the stage and by the big screen.

Next, you may spot the new lighting set up all over. Here we have used energy-saving LED luminaires that turn on and off automatically. The lighting is divided into zones and you can control the colour and intensity of the light within the zones.

On all three floors, new soundproofing ceiling panels have been used. In addition, the entire ventilation system has been replaced - you will certainly appreciate both. The air could be very heavy in the old library in the afternoon.

Finally, we have established new escape routes including new exits and exterior stairs. The flight way doors and stairs are for emergency use only and the doors are equipped with alarms - should you be tempted to open them. Sprinkler systems have also been installed for your safety. Establishing the new escape routes, etc., means that the library is now security-approved for 1,300 people versus 349 previously.

DTU Smart Library
In addition to these more practical installations, sensors are installed on each floor that can measure CO2, humidity, temperature, light intensity and noise. We are currently setting up about 80 so-called Modcams, measuring motion and motion patterns and, through intelligent video analysis, can tell all about the users - in anonymized form and in real time.

Data from the sensors and cameras is collected and stored. Data is used to create the best indoor climate and to guide users to the nicest "climate" right now. However, the huge amount of data can also be withdrawn and used in student and research projects; more about this later.
