About Mobile Lab
It is a comprehensive & versatile portable laboratory to analyse and diagnose historic building materials in an easy and clear manner. By using this equipment the basic techniques to categorise natural and artificial stones as well as degradation phenomena are made available to all those working in cultural heritage preservation.
It is a must to efficiently manage cultural heritage throughout the entire conservation process, from the fact-finding project to the conservation itself, paying special attention to programmed maintenance.
The diagnosis process starts with a thorough and accurate report that covers all the necessary aspects of the structure conditions before operations, such as:
- State of building exterior and interior
- Type and dating
- Morphology ground
- Territorial location
- Distance from the sea
- Exhaustive photographic documentation

We were challenged to assess the Mortuary Church on the Grounds of Glasnevin Cemetery and to provide a solution for the chronic rising damp problem.
Dampness detection campaign was conducted at the Cathedral of Cremona. Accuracy of the diagnostics and effectiveness of the PROTECTiT SRD reduced moisture in the walls of over 70%.
