practical shelter innovation for disaster relief

Working with partners.

There are 3 initiatives that we hope will be of interest to potential partners:

2. Manufacturing the steel RSK.

The steel shelter is fully developed and ready to be assembled in numbers. All the components are easily available and no special tooling is required.

We now need a partner, either in the corporate or private sector, that can develop the business potential of this shelter kit .

Our experience in researching and designing this product will be put towards making the partnership a success.

3. Educational opportunities

We see promoting the educational side as a key to getting the reciprocal frame construction concept widely adopted.

Schools: exploring the educational aspects of reciprocal frames from history, geometry, physics, mathematics and hands on practical work.

Universities; further research and engineering.

Other groups including Scouts and Guides.

1. Deploying the bamboo RSK.

Our aim is to show how the bamboo shelter kits can successfully be deployed in large numbers as part of a relief effort.

This could be achieved on a low cost budget by using local bamboo resources.

Options include a pilot project, as proposed in South Sudan, or as part of an existing deployment of shelter.

We consider it very important to work with aid agencies and partners in the field to achieve this objective and get the required feedback and monitoring.
