Underground Bunkers, Panic Rooms and Bomb Shelters

London specialist Basement Company

Providing protection for you and your family

At the end of May 2018 Sweden issued a ‘preparedness’ Pamphlet for the first time in 30 years which was distributed to every citizen in Sweden. The publication 'If Crisis or War Comes' contains detailed advice about the location of bomb shelters and how to prepare for the basic necessities for survival should a crisis occur.

This action may have taken many in Europe by surprise, no one is really expecting an imminent all out war, but the response from the Swedish Government comes after a number of incursions by Russia into Swedish Air and Sea Space.

In the UK we have also had some troubling activities, only in January this year (2018) RAF Fighters intercepted two Russian bombers near UK Airspace and more recently the Navy has been called upon to escort a Russian Spy Ship through the English channel on their return from Syria.

...And then there is the crisis in Ukraine...

Add the above incidents to the multitude of Terrorist Threats including Biological, Chemical, and Cyber attacks and it is starting to look quite prudent to have some measures in place to keep you and your family secure, particularly in major cities like London. This is where an Underground bunker becomes a useful addition to your house.

Subterranean Basements are specialist Basement Builders that cater for a wide range of basement uses. We can specify Basements as secure rooms, panic rooms, or basements shelters.

Bomb Shelters and Nuclear Bunkers

Underground bunkers or Bomb shelters need to be away from large structures and preferably in open space, so these structurses, unlike normal basements, are built away from your property. Bunkers should be built at a depth lower than normal storage bunkers and have sufficient ground mass on top of the roof structure to prevent possible damage and contamination. Fall out shelters also need air sealed door access and generators that will produce power for the shelter.

Bunkers also require integrated air systems that can pull air through specialist nuclear, biological and chemical filters. Built in storage for bottled water, tinned foods and other long life provisions are considered in the design as well as toilet, washing facilities and drainage.

Each bunker can be constructed to required specifications and tailor made for families. Subterranean Spaces design bunkers which can be totally bespoke and made for long periods of habitation or just for a few days.

The rooms act as versatile additional living space but also double as protected spaces with the specification and installation of Air filtration systems or ‘Scrubbers’ that use advanced HEPA filters to purify the air from Pathogens such as Anthrax, Chemicals such as Sarin, Chlorine and Mustard gas and other Bio-chemical agents which may be potentially used in a terrorist attack.

Additional Structural protection and vital storage capacity can also be provided in the Basements along with water filtration and storage as required.

Panic Rooms and Secure Basement rooms

Providing secure and safe accommodation is also a priority for some high net worth Individuals who require ‘Panic rooms’ and secure accommodation in the event of an intruder alert. The basement is an ideal room given its location and the provision of secure phone lines, independent from the main house network allow for emergency communication to be maintained at all times.
