    The fast-safe-simple house

    During a live presentation, customers and interested parties were shown how quickly and easily a GHS Temporary Home can be assembled.


    The key feature of the GHS system is its simplicity. A Temporary Home can be erected in just a few steps thanks to prefabricated elements. As a result, customers all over the world can use local qualified personnel for the erection of these houses and are not dependent on Service teams from Europe. On 11th May, selected customers and interested parties were shown “live” just how easy this is. The guests were able to convince themselves of the simplicity of the system on-site. The GHS fitters assembled wall elements in only a few minutes. The fully-assembled exhibition house is now standing at our premises in Ried im Traunkreis and can be viewed at any time.

  • A project with “added value” in Erftstadt

    A project with “added value” in Erftstadt

    In Erftstadt, refugee housing has existed for some time in the form of containers. When further accommodation was called for by the German Government, Peter Schranz and his team at GHS won the tender convincingly.

    Erftstadt is situated west of the city of Cologne and has taken on the task of offering assistance in times of large migratory flows. As a result, huge container villages were erected relatively quickly in an industrial area which were intended to provide accommodation for the incoming asylum-seekers. However, the German government wished to generate still more sleeping places, and put this project out to public tender. Besides the usual container solutions, alternative suggestions were permissible, and it was this fact which attracted the team from GHS. “The idea was to work in a cost-saving manner, and additionally to achieve better thermal insulation than is possible with containers”, explains Project Manager Peter Schranz.

    The Temporary Home by GHS is based on a timber-frame construction; a high-quality foam filling serves as a shell, and all “the extra bits” play both a role in the statics as well as acting as thermal insulation. On 7th March 2017, four completely identical buildings with a total utility area of 1400 m2 were assembled on a large green field, each featuring rooms measuring 12 m2 for two people. In addition, there are also small communal rooms, kitchens and washrooms in each house. The project was successfully completed on 11th May 2017, after a construction period of only two months.

    GHS Temporary Homes in Bad Leonfelden

    Millions of people are currently seeking refuge. In most cases, Germany is the stated destination. But the number of asylum applications has been growing rapidly in the last months in Austria as well. 700 asylum seekers are currently being housed by the Upper Austria Red Cross. 48 more will in future be given winter-proof accommodation in GHS Temporary Homes in Bad Leonfelden.
    It took just a few days for three GHS houses, which in future will provide accommodation for asylum seekers, to be built on a plot close to the Red Cross site. "This accommodation meets all the requirements for housing and looking after people who have sought asylum. There is no need for refitting or adaptations," explains the Upper Austria Red Cross President Dr. Walter Aichinger. The first house is already taking shape - three more will follow. 

    We are pleased to be able to support the Upper Austria Red Cross in this with a check for Euro 60,400.
