Kudos Cabins for Aid Agency Deployment to Disaster Relief Zones

When a World Food Programme (WFP) logistics officer discovered Kudos Cabins at an industry exhibition, we became the organisation’s preferred choice of modular building supplier. Amazed by our ability to reach a high mezzanine level by carrying the individual modules up the staircase with manpower alone, he saw a solution to the WFP’s problem of transporting and constructing mobile offices and temporary accommodation facilities when working abroad

Often deployed to disaster zones, the WFP are usually one of the first aid agencies to arrive at the site to provide disaster relief aid. Given the nature of the environments they arrive in, personnel resource levels are high but infrastructure is low; therefore, our Cabins, constructed using Kudos’ folding technology, are the ideal solution.

The WFP’s equipment is flown to the nearest landing space, from which it must be transported using any available vehicle. As the mobile Cabins are folded flat on their own, purpose-built, steel, stackable pallets, they can be transported individually by any flat-bedded vehicle; if required, each building module can be transported individually.

As aid agencies like the WFP must be reactive and respond to the specific needs of the disaster zone within which they are working, they are able to adapt the Cabins to link the building modules together to form bespoke buildings: such as operations rooms and communication centres. As each individual module is portable, they are able to situate the Cabin in the most appropriate positon: near external utilities, away from hostile areas, or even inside existing buildings.

With a solution that enables site offices and temporary accommodation to be immediately built so operations can being rapidly, the WFP have deployed Kudos Cabins to disaster relief areas and MOD defence zones worldwide.
