Extremis Technology

Extremis™ is a pioneering UK engineering company which invents and designs low-cost, folding, transitional shelter solutions which can be re-folded and re-deployed with relative ease. The Extremis™ vision is to house displaced people across the globe, but its customers also use its products for different commercial applications – such as worker accommodation and tourism. The company has so far appointed licensees in Nepal, India and Pakistan with active trading in India and Pakistan.

The company has four core shelter designs in its current product set which are actively being manufactured and marketed by its licensees. All of these provide a fast-deployable family home for five people. The HuSh™ range of shelters arrive to site in one piece and unfold in minutes, without the need for skilled labour or tools to erect. Shelters can be deployed to almost any terrain and conventional foundations are not required.

CommonwealthFirst is delighted to be able to support Extremis™ in its mission to provide shelter relief for all those affected by earthquake, hurricanes, floods or war and will be actively looking to make these products more accessible to the Commonwealth countries who most need them.
