Woodsense rebrands to Tector, expanding market reach with innovative moisture detection solutions

Copenhagen, Denmark – Woodsense, the Nordic leader in moisture monitoring technology, proudly announces its rebranding to Tector. This strategic move reflects the company's broader market fit and the overwhelming success of its moisture detection technology in the timber construction market, which is now also being rigorously applied to flat roofs with any type of material, enhancing the offerings for comprehensive building protection.

Tector’s state-of-the-art sensors monitor moisture conditions within buildings, detecting water ingress, and issuing alerts when critical levels are detected. This proactive approach is revolutionising how we manage and prevent water damage, a leading cause of building deterioration.

From day 1, the company's mission has been to mitigate moisture damage in buildings, " said Jeppe Rasmussen, CEO of Tector, “Early on, we observed widespread industry frustrations surrounding leaks in flat roofs. When we found a way to solve this massive problem, users quickly started to spread the knowledge of our solution and we realised that we could do more than just support in timber construction - we could help eliminate damages related to water ingress in all areas of the building across any sector"

Why Tector?

"Detect moisture to protect buildings & budgets"

The transition to Tector reflects our dedication to detecting moisture to protect both buildings and budgets. Derived from the words “detector” & “protector”, Tector embodies our mission to deliver clear, actionable solutions that mitigate risks and ensure the longevity of buildings.  From detection to protection, Tector empowers developers to build with confidence and resilience, safeguarding investments and promoting durability.

Expanding market reach

Tector’s moisture detection technology is trusted by many prominent projects, including the new Mary Elizabeth Hospital in Copenhagen, the Olympic Village in Paris, and Marmormolen, a major waterfront office development in Copenhagen. Tector's technology has been crucial in maintaining the structural integrity and safety of these vital infrastructures, proving its effectiveness in high-stakes environments.

“We’re proud to work with respected clients such as global engineering firm Arup and Scandinavian leaders NCC and Rambøll. These partnerships highlight the trust and reliability our solutions bring to significant projects around the world,” comments Jeppe Rasmussen, CEO of Tector.

Woodsense, now Tector, successfully transitioned from a niche provider of timber moisture management to a leading solution for flat roof monitoring, enhancing offerings for comprehensive building protection, driving substantial growth and expanding its presence internationally.

Addressing a critical challenge

In the dynamic landscape of modern construction, developers face the challenge of managing a myriad of factors to ensure project success and profitability. Moisture ingress is a persistent issue, particularly in flat roofs, which are increasingly used to maximise urban space. Such water ingress can lead to significant and often undetected damage, resulting in costly repairs, project delays, and compromised structural integrity.

The financial impact

Water damage is responsible for 74% of building damage costs, often only discovered when the damage is severe. This can lead to financial strain, budget overruns, and delays, particularly detrimental in critical infrastructure projects like hospitals and schools. For developers, this means increased risks and potential losses that directly impact the bottom line.

Enhancing quality and reducing risks

Our innovative technology not only mitigates risks but also enhances quality assurance. Early detection of water ingress enables faster, targeted repairs, maintaining the structural health of buildings and protecting financial investments. This approach supports sustainable and resilient construction practices, essential for modern urban development.

Commitment to trust and reliability

At Tector, we understand the importance of trust and reliability in the construction industry. Our solutions are designed to be clear, actionable, and dependable, ensuring that developers can confidently manage moisture risks and focus on delivering high-quality, on-budget projects.

Looking ahead

As we expand our market reach, Tector remains dedicated to supporting the building industry with the most advanced moisture detection technology available. Our goal is to provide peace of mind through innovative solutions that safeguard both financial investments and the long-term health of buildings.
