Bushbunker is an architecturally designed bushfire safety bunker concept that has been envisioned in response to the horrific Black Saturday bushfires of February 2009. The design addresses the limitations of the Victorian Governments revised building standards for bushfire prone areas, as well as the critical shortcomings of current market solutions.
The Bushbunker represents a concept that has been designed from scratch specifically as a bushfire bunker, and is comprehensively engineered to withstand the severe environmental conditions that a major bushfire produces. It has been designed for maximum survivor ability no matter the intensity or type of fire.
