Tomb of Jesus: SMT sensors help monitor and report on the wall moisture level of the renovation

SMT has been trusted to monitor the most sensitive data centers, art galleries and historic structures in the world. In most cases these projects are performed under confidential contracts as moisture in assemblies are considered sensitive private information.

We are proud to be able to tell the world that we provided masonry moisture sensors to monitor and report on the wall moisture level of the renovated Tomb of Jesus, Church of the Holy Sepulchre, Jerusalem.

The masonry moisture monitoring technology has been installed and is presently monitoring the newly renovated Tomb of Jesus. The sensor technology is used to monitor the masonry at the monument foundation where moisture transfer is occurring through capillary action through the stone and mortar.

The sensor was developed in conjunction with the University of Manitoba through an NSERC Engage project. The outcome of this project resulted in using the sensors to monitor the moisture performance and degradation of Canada’s parliament buildings.
