DISASTER PREPAREDNESS

MICEBS

MICEBS was developed in Australia to assist countries and communities to build resilience into their lives by providing an earthquake proof, cyclone resistant core to any reconstructed structure.

 

When MICEBS is packed into a twenty foot disaster response container there are sufficient MICEBS components for the construction of four, thirty square metre substantial buildings with a level floor above the ground, adaptable to sloping sites and able to be assembled without specialist labour. The components are able to be transported by either pick-up truck, bicycle or canoe (a Red Cross requirement).

 

Delivered to the disaster zone from central depots as required using either road, ship or helicopter, the community can decide what MICEBS configuration is required, where the best location is for erection and who will do the build. MICEBS can accommodate up to one metre of site cross fall meaning that no earth works are required.
