Emergency Shelters or disaster relief shelter designs must be affordable, available for large and small relief projects and be superior to tents. Relief Shelters must be economical to ship, easy to build and last a long time so the recipients ( usually families ) can do more than survive, they can thrive. Additional features that would be beneficial include: not rotting, being insulated, resist insects, and being tough enough to withstand the rigors of use and time.
Emergency Shelters for Disaster Recovery and Relief that transition to a permanent Home.
But maybe the most important feature for a disaster recovery shelter or emergency shelter is that it should be able to transition economically into a permanent house. Why throw money away sending tents, then more tents and then cobbling things together that will not last? That process is totally old school, way to expensive, takes way too long, and leaves the people you are trying to help vulnerable for a long time.
Seriously, we think things can be done better!
That is why we developed the most versatile disaster relief shelter building system available today. There is not much new about panel shelters or shelters made from sip panels. People have been building with panels for quite some time. The problem is panels are expensive to ship! To combat that, we have developed a portable sip panel manufacturing system to build almost any type of shelter using panels that are made on site ~ anywhere in the world.
These shelters have a long list of features. Most notably, they are:
Economical ~ Scalable ~ Incredibly Tough ~ Extremely long lasting ~The ONLY shelter that becomes a permanent home ~ Insect resistant ~Does not rot ~ Most efficient to ship – Guaranteed ~ Built on site and utilizes local participation ~ Can be built by almost anyone, almost anywhere ~ Affordable with the price of a shelter ranging from $800.00 USD – $2,300 USD (depending on model and quantity)
IADDIC disaster shelter products are perfect in situations requiring long-lasting and low-cost shelter to be erected very quickly. Our unique construction process enables large quantities of shelters to be constructed very quickly making them ideal for: displaced person camps ~ refugee camps ~ tent cities in America ~ field shelters ~ disaster shelters ~ emergency relief shelters ~ workforce housing ~ man camps And because many times its impossible to know exactly what size and how many of each size shelter you may need, With IADDIC, you decide what type and size structures are needed when you need them.
Why Onsite Shelter Building?
Because it’s effective! It’s economical, and just about anyone can be taught how to use the system. AND – the shelters will last decades and can transition into affordable housing in the reconstruction process. Our on-site panel production uses the same high-quality materials used in conventional Structural Insulated Panel manufacturing with thinner walls and tough skins. The SIP panels can be made in a wide variety of sizes and with a bit of disaster preparedness planning, can be ready to produce everything from refugee camps, refugee shelters, disaster relief shelters, temporary housing, small houses, schools, clinics, and more.
These shelters can fill the needs of anyone needing a temporary shelter building systems that deploy quickly and stays with the recipient for a lifetime. This is a departure from traditional disaster preparedness processes where the recipient is transitioned through many products and through the many stages of the post-disaster recovery process: From tarps, tents, transitional shelters, and finally a house. These processes may take a decade or more to complete following large natural disasters, especially in poorer regions which often times leaves the occupants vulnerable to additional calamity. Just look at Haiti where 9 years later many people are still living in tents.
