Building Science Research and Product Development that has Benefitted from SMT Products and Services

We are commercially known as SMT,  but SMT Research is our full name.

We started SMT with a suite of products and services to assist with moisture detection in existing buildings, and soon found that the people who perform the building science research also wanted access to the same abilities in their labs - and in-situ monitoring construction projects. Our monitoring systems and solutions have been used to enable leading building science investigations to occur on everyday construction projects. With SMT equipment you can turn any project into a “test hut” of knowledge and verification of desired outcomes.
