01) Concrete Tent – I Didn’t Know That

“Watch Richard Ambrose and Jonny Phillips quickly construct a building made of concrete canvas material that has all the elements of concrete, but is flexible enough to be turned into any shape. This technology allows people to erect permanent structures in a fraction of the time needed for traditional building techniques.”

Concrete Canvas Shelters ’09:

Modern Industry & Tech – Concrete Cloth & Concrete Canvas Shelter:

“In this video compilation are presented some of the possibilities for civilian and military use of UK-based company Concrete Canvas main products based on technology which holds company name, concrete in easy to operate canvas like form factor which allows easy transportation, manipulation, and assembly of a concrete with increased durability (for given thickness) allowing work in remote areas and reducing time necessary for some specific construction jobs by a value, that can fully compensate for a higher cost of this alternative material by man hours and logistics which will be otherwise needed to be paid, if old concrete deployment methods were chosen instead.

Especially interesting are Concrete Canvas technology solutions for military and agencies dealing with various natural or man-made disasters, where the need for building infrastructure and housing at shortest possible notice is of the essence in order to allow logistic chain flow and civilians or soldiers in need for insulated shelter to survive until more time-consuming infrastructure is built or evacuation is arranged.

Concrete Canvas Shelter has also some potential to become the poor-mans castle for persons and their families that lost their homes, and/or waiting for their re-/construction after natural disasters like tornados even in developed countries as the shelter can be later used among other things as the cold place for food storage.
Other examples may be possible if shelter becomes adequately reinforced and buried underground with some pillars to take a weight of the earth above to serve as a storm shelter which when properly insulated with a chimney for a ventilation coupled to NBC filter can take role of “all kinds of disasters bunker” for a prepper folks on the budget….
