How Recovery Huts Work

How the System Works

Module Options and SchematicsThese durable and nesting modular parts serve as a single adaptable system sheltering both ‘emergency’ and ‘transitional’ housing needs after disaster strikes and can reduce the delay and costly redundancy of the current two-stage setup and take-down processes.

The basic 85 square feet hut is divided into four 60 pound sections and are available with up to four insect-proof venting door panels that allow connecting to adjacent huts for a variety of family clusters and village layouts. A long list of optional accessories is also available.

Modular Options

Shown here are some simple elaborations of the basic hut system in its expanded form. Employing a few more modules now being developed allow for a huge expansion in building sizes and configurations – including second levels – for more complex building needs and functions.

Village Groupings

The hut groupings and clusters shown opposite give a general indication how Recovery Huts’ modular system allows a wide range of site layouts, different family, ethnic, cultural living patterns as well as for specialized medical triage, first aid, military outposts and HQ, community / governmental agency support facilities, and other uses requiring this kind of adaptability.

Recovery Huts has presented before university and professional humanitarian groups and agencies, scheduled for publication in news media, to be featured in a Brazilian Design magazine, in a new book on shelter design, scheduled to demonstrate at IDEC11, Jakarta.

Recovery Huts are durable and strong for supporting electrical, lights and plumbing equipments, shelves, suitable for permanent resettlement housing.

Our huts can quickly be demobilized, pressure washed/sanitized and thoroughly dried for long-term storage – preventing the mold and mildew associated with fabric structures.

Once their field life is finally over, they can be collected, shredded and recycled into any number of usable products, leaving no environmental trace.
