In 2016, building automation expert and supplier of HVAC controls in Malta, JMartans, was indirectly approached by the Conservation Division of Heritage Malta to consult on a serious issue concerning the good preservation of the Hypogeum. Since its opening in 1908, the site has been visited by thousands of people. Unfortunately, this was gravely affecting the delicate microclimate of the site and the unique red ochre paintings. For this reason, along with a strict
management of the number of visitors per day introduced by the direction, JMartans was asked to provide an intelligent environmental control system to manage the temperature and humidity of the three levels, at required settings. We are extremely proud to have efficiently helped a UNESCO world heritage to preserve its captivating and mystical beauty. For help with managing any air conditioning and HVAC, get in touch.
