ABOUT

The Humanihut concept was initially designed in 2013 as a solution to the growing humanitarian crisis.

Humanihut’s Story

As a former soldier, Co-Founder and Managing Director of Humanihut, Neale Sutton, had first-hand experience in the hardships of conflict. That experience was his biggest inspiration behind designing an innovative, robust temporary emergency accommodation solution, which was rapidly deployable, had design flexibility allowing a structure to be used for multiple applications, and did not compromise on durability and performance.

A Word From Our Managing Director

The Humanihut concept was initially designed in 2013 as a solution to the growing humanitarian crisis which had its origins in the Syrian War, and to aid the citizens that the conflict was displacing into Jordan and Lebanon. Since then, the Humanihut Field Infrastructure System (HFIS) has gone through a series of developments that have matured into the complete Systems that you can explore across this website. Now focussed into four separate international markets, the HFIS’ reputation has continued to grow, and is now in many locations throughout the world, driving improvements in field infrastructure and accommodation.

The HFIS provides excellent outcomes for those who are accommodated within in it, and Camp Managers who are looking for a financially efficient, technically innovative, and physically robust solution to their field infrastructure needs.

I recommend this solution to you if you require comfortable, economical, robust, rigid, re-deployable infrastructure.
