Earthquake Update

We here at SRS were fortunate to have not suffered any significant damage as a result of the devastating Feburary 22nd Christchurch earthquake. Our thoughts go out to all those who have not been so lucky.

As a way to show our support, the team at SRS built a fully self contained shower unit which is now on the streets of Christchurch.

We were extremely humbled by a very generous contribution from EFCO Asia for this project.

This shower unit, built in a shipping container with 3 female and 3 male showers, onboard gas hot water system and power generator has now been donated to the Christchurch City Council for use in streets undergoing power upgrades and other services that may disrupt water supply.
