Case - Folk High School

The folk high school had been through a bigger renovation of their building's roof due to moisture related damages that made the rafts unusable, but they had a listed building left they wanted to keep alive to prevent further millions being used on roof renovations.

Challenge

At the other rooftops it wasn't discovered when the rainwater came in through the roof and made the raft beneath moist.

The rooftops are not always easily accessible and therefore is not a place Facility Managers usually check.

Due to that, the Facility Manager of the folk high school asked for a way to be alarmed when these critical elements beings to absorb water, instead of detecting the damage late as they are used to.

Solution

The folk high school uses BeResourceful's sensor & data solution to automatically monitor the moistening of wood in critical areas of their building

Sensors will be put around areas previously affected, such as at the ridge, around the window, the valley rafter and by the chimney
