Out of the Box Solutions - Atlantis Water Management provides quick, easy, and incredibly strong emergency shelters for disaster recovery sites
Atlantis Water Management is excited to sponsor the upcoming Emergency Shelter Exhibition.
Atlantis is proud to endorse this event and initiative taking place from Thursday 1st to Saturday 3rd September 2011 on the forecourt of Customs House in Circular Quay, Sydney. Atlantis is always amazed of professionals' ability to create innovate new applications with their versatile product range.
Jun Sakaguchi (Architect), Exhibition curator explains; “This exhibition is to propose shelters that could not only protect people from rain and other elements in emergency situations but also provide a space to feel secure and comfortable in a disastrous environment. This is a fundamental component of the recovery process.”
Jun also highlighted that it was desirable to have a shelter design that utilised sustainable construction materials readily available after a disaster.
QUT (Queensland University of Technology) architecture students will join Green Leaf Engineers to construct Modulo, in just one day on the 31st of August, prior to the official exhibition opening on the 1st September.
Modulo is the shelter concept from Green Leaf Engineers that is made from recycled polypropylene gabion-wall elements which are stored and transported as a flat-packed kit, along with roofing, flooring, lighting and heating components.
The shelter walls, benches and storage facilities are made of Atlantis Flo Tank modules. The ease of construction of the flat packed Flo Tanks, as well as the aesthetics, made Atlantis Flo Tanks a perfect option to create the internal and external architectural elements.
The shelter floors are constructed with Atlantis 52mm Flo Cells which are strong yet lightweight, modular and feature superior drainage characteristics.
Atlantis’ goal is to provide sustainable stormwater management and green building application, offering value for society. Atlantis’ mission is to “Create Green Cities for life”, and in this effort they are pleased to endorse this architectural exhibition and provide support for people in need.
