This summer Australia’s governments, communities and humanitarian aid agencies are struggling to respond to catastrophic bushfires of an unprecedented scale and severity.
More than 10 million hectares of land have been burned across the country, causing serious injury, death and the destruction of towns, farms, businesses and homes.
We have all watched the news reports as thousands of Australians have been forced to flee bushfire-affected zones.
We believe that these Australian families deserve to feel safe, secure and comfortable until their houses are rebuilt, and they can return to their lives.
NXT TEC. has devised a solution using our unique building technology to provide affordable, high quality and virtually immediate accommodation for the many families who have been displaced by the fires.
The NXT™ Flatpack is an Australian designed and manufactured, all-in-one rapid deployment accommodation turnkey solution for emergency and immediate disaster response. This Australian-made solution can be used to create emergency camps in the form of clusters or as short-term accommodation on individual properties while families rebuild their homes. In addition, it can also be used for permanent applications after the immediate crisis has passed.
Up to 300 NXT™ Flatpack units can be delivered within 2 weeks from date of order, assembled within 24 hours using common hardware, and there is no limit on the number of units which can be made available to respond to this disaster.
Each unit consists of 25m² of studio accommodation with two bedrooms, an ensuite, shared entry and water closet, comes fully furnished and can accommodate up to 6 people.
NXT TEC. is an Australian building technology company which was founded with a focus on scalable residential projects to improve the accessibility of housing for those who need it most.
As well as supplying the components of the NXT™ Flatpack, NXT TEC. provides end-to-end project management services from procurement to assembly and quality assurance.
And the complete supply and installation of the fire resistant, Region D cyclone proof, and environmentally sustainable NXT™ Flatpack units cost as little as $60 per day (on a 5-year lease plan).
