Techo trial-deployment nearing completion

Techo Trial Deployment

I’ve been in Dominican Republic for over a week now and am delighted to report that all six of the shelters sent from the UK are successfully deployed.

The terrain here is difficult and there have been a few unexpected problems to overcome but the whole Techo team has worked extremely hard and the chosen families are very grateful for their new homes.

I think we can feel very proud about what Extremis has provided here and I’m looking forward to collecting the research data now and getting some feedback from the new occupants to complete our first deployment. Simon Allen, Senior Project Engineer.


Sebastián Smart, Executive Director, TECHO Charity UK

I’m writing to thank you and your team for all the effort that you have made to develop the Dominican Republic project, from the incredible design of the houses, the fundraising, the coordination with the DR team and the Valientes.

All this incredible work will come true in a couple of weeks. The good thing is that some of the poorest families in Latin America, those that are usually living without electricity, sewage and water, will work alongside Extremis and TECHO volunteers to have a new start, with a new house.

Just wanted to say thanks to all your team. You had been amazing!
