SmartDry damp control received the commission for the Saint H. Willibrord Church in Oegstgeest, near Leyden. Like 30% of Holland, this church lies below sea level, so rising damp was a recurrent problem. The church board had considered many different options, but finally went for SmartDry because of it’s environmentally friendly nature. The board is full praise of the system, which has lead to a number of other projects for religious buildings.
