Ausco Modular ready for disaster situations

25 September 2017


Australia experiences some of the most severe weather related natural disasters in the world including severe storms, bushfires and flooding, meaning people and businesses need to be prepared and ready if the worst does occur.


For many sectors, including education and health, work cannot cease if a natural disaster impacts their buildings. For example, when devastating fires raged through the Tasman Peninsular in early 2013, over one-third of all buildings in the town of Dunalley were lost – more than 65 structures including the local police station and primary school. With Term 1 a matter of weeks away, Ausco Modular was able to assist immediately and supply temporary buildings for the Dunalley Primary School to operate as normal while the school was rebuilt.

Not only can Ausco Modular deliver modular units for education purposes and amenities, equipped buildings for medical use can also be delivered in a quick timeframe – generally one-third of the time of a traditional build. Modular units that may have been used as decant facilities for medical needs for regional hospitals are also good solutions. When medical buildings are destroyed or damaged, modular buildings can be delivered and installed to ensure medical professionals are able to continue providing a high level of care to patients who may have also been affected by the natural disaster.


The modular solution also provides temporary medical facilities in areas that aren’t traditionally serviced by medical professionals, as well as accommodation for emergency support staff flown in to an area that has no viable accommodation.


Regardless of the disaster situation, modular buildings can often be the only timely and affordable solution that allows businesses and towns to continue to operate and get back to business as usual. If you are in need of a timely building solution, modular should be considered.
