D&D-Fast Response Building (D&D-FRB) works closely with its clients to design and provide turn-key military camps and settlements, from concept and construction to full operation. D&D-FRB manufactures rapidly-deployable, pre-engineered, modular mobile buildings and shelters using state-of-the-art concepts and technology.
FAST-RESPONSE EMERGENCY SHELTER BUILDINGS
The design concept for D&D-FRB’s Fast-Response Buildings (FRBs) was to simplify and speed up the response to immediate needs for safe, comfortable and secure shelter. The result is a simple, reliable, high-quality product, optimised to maximise logistics. This cost-effective technology is ideal for military and humanitarian aid operations, as FRBs possess the following advantages:
- Extremely fast and very cost-effective thanks to their simple design
- Optimised use of all modes of transport, with deployment via air, land and sea
- Little or no site / ground preparation required
- A modular and flexible design that can be easily extended and adapted
- Multi-purpose use
- Durable in all weather conditions, with high insulation that adds comfort
- Heating, ventilation and air-conditioning available
- Living quarter, kitchen, and toilet / shower accessories readily available
FLAT-PACK FAST-RESPONSE BUILDINGS
D&D-FRB’s flat-pack fast-response buildings have all been designed by ex-military personnel who understand problems experienced in the field. To this end, our units are designed to fit on standard NATO shipping and air-dropping pallets. All of our products are manufactured in accordance with EU standards, and are also ISO 9001-2000 certified.
The floors, walls and roofs of D&D-FRB flat-pack fast-response buildings are constructed with state-of-the-art Structural Insulated Composite Panels (SIPs). These high-strength, low-weight elements allow the fast construction of buildings that combine personal security, privacy and comfort with durability and low-maintenance.
The SIPs are manufactured using tensioned steel structurally-bonded to high-performance Styrofoam® extruded-insulation produced by Dow Chemical.
Cost-effective pre-storage of these flat-pack units enables an immediate and effective response to unexpected situations, such as conflicts, natural disasters, emergencies, military exercises, commercial and construction needs, and social events.
Due to their simplicity and flexible design, FRBs:
- Can be easily assembled / disassembled in 15 minutes without requiring specific tools or technical assistance
- Can be used to build up a camp or a village in a day
- Require little or no ground preparation
- Are easily erected on any ground, including sloped terrain
- Are robust, re-locatable and re-usable many times for many applications
TURN-KEY MILITARY / EMERGENCY CAMPS AND MILITARY / CIVIL BUILDINGS
FRBs are available as individual units to be used for operation and communication centres, soldier or staff compounds, accommodation units, offices, infirmaries, dormitories, mobile clinics, construction-site units, stores, mobile schools, medical centres, sports centres and outdoor-events facilities.
D&D-FRB also provide turn-key camp solutions for military, humanitarian aid and commercial application use. Examples of these are fast-deployed military-operational camps, staff compounds for NGOs, transitional settlements for displaced communities, and construction-site accommodation.
D&D-FRB’s modular, flat-pack buildings can be immediately deployed in any situation requiring the immediate management of human flows and safe storage, such as sudden-disaster situations, military exercises or civilian projects.
