In spring 2016 we were 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 which kept 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.
