Bunker Down Consultants Break New Ground
Fort Takapuna, Auckland – Prompted by overwhelming interest from customers concerned about climate change and rising sea levels, Bunker Down has completed another innovative new project: an underground home in Auckland that can be powered by SeaSwell™ wave generator technology - literally harnessing energy from rising tides to power your home.
In the event of an unfortunate, but inevitable, severe storm, there is no need to evacuate since your Bunker Down residence can be submerged by up to 10-meters of seawater. Our already-renowned BalistaBlast™ bullet and fireproof glass, standard on all our underground facilities, has been re-engineered with a 6.2 atmospheric pressure rating and a dedicated air supply to provide the ultimate life assurance solution. Never again will you have to worry about the safety of your family, or losing power, during a storm event. In fact, with SeaSwell™ installed, you may even be able to sell power back to Ausgrid following turbulent weather!
Bunker Down Subterraneous Property Consultants is Australia’s leading developer of underground homes. Whether you are anxious about a major crisis, temporary civil unrest, or simply seek the ultimate space of personal privacy, we can provide you with the peace of mind you deserve.
Bunker Down was founded in Victoria, Australia in early 2009 by CEO Dirk Talbot, who lost his beautiful country estate to the Black Saturday bushfires.
‘Walking through the ashes that used to be my house,’ Mr Talbot said in a recent interview with 9News, ‘I started thinking about how you build a house that doesn’t burn. I’ve now dedicated my life to providing the ultimate space of protection for my family.’ The decision brought Mr Talbot to Sydney, where the sedimentary rock of the Sydney Basin provided the perfect palate for his first custom-built subterraneous home at Bondi, Sydney. When it comes to nuclear, biological, and environmental security, the air-filtered underground is your only sure safe harbour.
Living underground is not solely about safety, however. Underground space allows for better climate and atmospheric control, since subsoil temperatures remain consistent throughout the year and are sheltered from the seasons, insects, and bushfire smoke. And if silence is golden, then these bunkers are truly gilded living. Protected in your personal haven, even time can be controlled using state-of-the art lighting that recreates the circadian rhythm on your schedule.
Once from rock and poured to your design preferences, a Bunker Down property requires almost no maintenance or upkeep, as they are virtually indestructible – particularly if you upgrade to our Diamond ShellCore™package, which can withstand heat of up to 260°C and .50-Calibre rifle fire. With internal well-water access, surface-level solar panels, or our new SeaSwell™ wave generator technology, you can be assured that even in the event of a state-wide emergency, you won’t need to sacrifice your lifestyle – because you were prepared!
Don’t be left behind. According to British researchers, from 2008-2017 4,650 planning applications for subterraneous residences were submitted to seven London boroughs. Many of them included cinemas, game rooms, libraries, bars, and even aquaponics facilities. These amenities can be safely enjoyed without suffering from ‘surface anxiety’. No-obligation excavation and hardening estimates for your future underground home are available now.
