This is an opportunity to be provide niche equipment and service to support a flag-ship project as part of the Emergency Management System Reforms. The New Zealand Emergency Management Assistance Team (NZ-EMAT) will deliver the capability described originally as a ‘Fly-in Team’ and will enhance the overall capability of the emergency management system. Resilient, flexible, rapidly deployable multi-purpose habitation will be a key element of the capability the team can offer to affected agencies when responding to an austere disaster environment.

What we need:

Rapidly deployable, portable, habitation systems capable of providing weatherproof multi-purpose work environments suitable for functions such as; coordination centre space, emergency responder accommodation, equipment storage and maintenance.
Each unit should be modular, and be capable of being joined to other units to provide a larger weather tight structure.
Each unit should be easy to erect in less than 30 minutes with no more than six people. Where specialist tools or equipment are required these must be supplied and there should be alternative or resilient means of ensuring the unit can be erected if these are not available.
Each unit should break down into component parts capable of being palletised, and handled mechanically and manually within safe working limits.
The deployed units need to be suitable for use in New Zealand all-year round, in an austere post-disaster environment and capable of sustained use for at least 6 months including subsequent severe weather events, and be capable of field repairs where required.
We anticipate each unit providing 30-70m2 of work space with a minimum 1.8m internal working height (some intrusion for sidewall / roof supports around the outside may be acceptable).
Each unit, should weigh less than 300 kg and be capable of being broken down into component parts no larger than 1.8m x 0.8m x 1.2m"
It is envisaged that the units will be some form of soft sided tent or marquee type structure.
We anticipate four caches of equipment across the country. Each cache is anticipated to have a minimum of two units. These units may be different sizes i.e. ‘medium’ and ‘large’ units to provide some task delineation and deployment flexibility. All units across the country should be able to join together to provide at least 300m2 of work space. Options for extended vestibules or porches, to provide changing areas and weather protection to entrances are desirable
