As European communities grapple with the dire need for refugee housing, Röder Zelt- und Veranstaltungsservice GmbH, Büdingen, Germany, has responded with a versatile system of quickly erectable halls.
Röder manufactured and installed 12 halls designed to accommodate 56 people per unit, along with four fully equipped dining and care rooms and office space, in Bochum, Germany.
The 10-by-30-meter, snowload-rated halls are equipped with electrical distribution, ceiling-mounted heating pipes and appliances. Each housing unit consists of 14 bedrooms designed for four people each, with soundproof partition walls for privacy. A large common room is furnished with four PC workstations and Internet as well as group tables and chairs. Two TV rooms are equipped with sitting areas, a coffee table and a television. On both sides of the common room are entrances to showers and bathrooms, which are installed externally. The 25-square-meter entrance offers a laundry area and storage. The double-walled thermal roof is filled with air, and the facade elements offer insulation.
Designed for swift production and delivery, the units can be installed quickly on almost any surface.
“We are very proud that we have managed to create a special tent system that serves as a fully functional accommodation for the needs of the refugees,” says Jens Brüggemann, CEO of Röder Group. “We are happy that our products can make a valuable contribution to humanitarian aid for the needy.”
