Insights to empower developers
Construction projects require multiple complicated projects to be managed at any given time. With proactive water monitoring, developers have one less thing to worry about - and are also to use the water data collected to inform their actions.
Extra safety for contractors
Proactive monitoring ensures that when errors happen or project areas aren’t properly sealed, contractors are alerted to it on the day and can fix it immediately, rather than only learning when damage spreads.

Smith & Wallwork, faced water damage risks during the construction of the Northgate House in the center of Oxford. Traditional moisture monitoring methods proved inadequate.

In response, Tector's wireless sensors were strategically placed, providing real-time data on moisture, temperature, and humidity. This proactive approach enabled the building owner to detect another leak that they initially thought had been fixed, which could have led to structural risks and another round of costly repairs if it had gone undetected.

The REWINNUSE project, in collaboration with M-Sora, the Slovenian Forestry Institute, and the Norwegian Institute for Bioeconomic Research (NIBIO), aimed to address the challenges faced by Slovenian joinery manufacturers in sourcing raw material, particularly spruce wood. With spruce becoming increasingly scarce and expensive, alternative wood species and innovative window design were explored.

The project tested the use of alternative wood species and demountable joints for wooden windows, aiming for environmentally friendly solutions while reducing dependence on market fluctuations.

In the heart of the Slovenian wilderness stands the wooden church of Javorca, a poignant memorial to fallen soldiers of World War I. Over time, however, this historic structure faced decay from harsh mountain weather.

To safeguard its legacy, Boštjan Lesar’s team from the University of Ljubljana turned to Tector, for real-time water ingress monitoring and protection. Through careful data analysis and targeted interventions, Boštjan’s team is preserving the church's structural integrity while maintaining its original character.
