LOGISTICS & SHELTER a worldwide issue
Briefed by the military to re-invent the shipping container and by the Red Cross to provide a Transitional Housing solution, MICEBS was born.
MICEBS is the essence of lean logistics, the MICEBS container itself provides all the components of our building system. We prepare kits of components to suit a client’s individual needs ranging from disaster response, to medical facilities and emergency housing.
Our basic module of 30 sq. meters (320 sq. ft) provides shelter above the ground and an earthquake and cyclone resistant core for reconstruction. Our modules are man-portable, reconfigurable and reusable.
A MICEBS module can be erected by hand in two hours, by two people using only simple tools.
A unique aspect of our system is that it can be erected on sloping sites with up to one metre cross-fall, without prior site preparation, multiple footing options are available.
MICEBS has been developed specifically for humanitarian needs, particularly Disaster Risk Reduction.
With the development of “BalPal” , MICEBS can now offer both fully fire proof structures and bullet proof walling systems.
