SMT Research is providing a leak detection system for 75,000 sq. ft. of mechanical interstitial space in the UBC Life Sciences Centre. The space is located above research labs and is designed to enable easy access to mechanical systems for maintenance and re-configuration. The related plumbing and mechanical system component failures are costing the facility millions of dollars in water based damages since the award winning building was built.

Through the installation of a suite SMT Building Intelligence Products, the water will be detected with-in seconds, and notify users with-in minutes by text page, email and notification through their Building Management System.
