Northwest Shelter Systems Consulting Packages

Northwest Shelter Systems (NWSS) is a world leader in underground concrete bomb shelters and specifically shelters built to withstand nuclear, biological and chemical (NBC) attacks. Building and contracting your own bomb shelter is a rewarding experience, but it can be overwhelming as you begin the planning process. NWSS is proud to offer over fifty years of combined experience between our consultants Kevin Thompson and Mark Johnson. Hiring a consultant who understands site evaluation, construction materials and shelter design can save you thousands of dollars as you begin your project. NWSS offers a variety of consulting packages, from a simple phone consultation to premium site consultations which include crucial shelter elements such as: imbedded vault blast door, emergency escape hatch, filtration systems and more.

Northwest Shelter Systems Site Evaluation

In addition to the consulting packages, NWSS offers a site evaluation which is essential in order for our consultants to provide you with informed guidance on each individual project and layout. A site evaluation allows our consultants to review your project’s architectural plans and evaluate the plans for correct underground shelter construction. Unfortunately, even if you have had a qualified architect design your plans, if they do not understand bomb shelters and NBC designs, the plans may need to be adjusted to provide the best protection possible. Correcting structural issues prior to beginning construction is far more cost effective than attempting to correct them after construction has begun.

A site evaluation allows our consultants to assist you in choosing the best location on your site for construction of your shelter. The highest priority in selecting a site is accessibility, but understanding all the factors that will go into the shelter and slight adjustments to placement can possibly save you money without compromising the integrity and safety of your shelter.

Benefits of site evaluation:

• Ensure plans are correct and designed to fit your individual needs.
• Ensures your shelter is in the optimal location to provide quick, safe and undetectable access.
• Answer any questions you have regarding designing and building a shelter, and provide experienced advice to ensure even unasked questions are resolved.
• Step-by-step explanation of plans which helps you understand the process from start to finish.
• Informational package including previous shelter plans, photos and accessories will be utilized to ensure you understand the process.
• Saves you time and money.
