British Caribbean

We supplied Flospan buildings to the Government of the British Caribbean Island of Montserrat.

These Flospans were purchased after the devastation caused by Hurricane Hugo, and were funded by the Overseas Development Agency of the British Government, (now the Department For International Development).

Flospans were chosen for their wind resistant design and ease of transport after Hurricane Hugo devastated the island. Since being erected as classrooms and offices after that hurricane, they have proved their mettle by surviving three more hurricanes and a volcano.

Two photographs show the Flospans in a sea of volcanic ash. In some cases the ash has drifted right up to window height, but the buildings are still in such good shape that Conport was asked to quote for moving them from the exclusion zone so that they could be reused as airport buildings.

Technology used: FLOSPAN
