Home Episode 81: Every Shelter and Emergency Floor
In this week's podcast, Matt and his guest, Scott Key, architect, builder, founder of the non-profit Every Shelter, and inventor of Emergency Floor, go deep into how builders can help change the world. 

They touch on the recent tragedy in Turkey and how refugees and victims of natural disasters shelter in inadequate constructions. They talk about how refugees can be displaced for two decades or more, how these camps have higher levels of disease and poor health, and how Scott's invention, Emergency Floor, can change these conditions.

The Emergency Floor panels are injection molded, have an R-value of 4.5, a high flammability rating, and don't require professional installation. Every Shelter also up-cycles billboard materials into a vapor-closed tarp for emergency use as a roof or shelter wall. These products are lightweight, easy to set up, and can make a massive difference for the displaced.

Listen in as Matt and Scott delve into contractor failure, good building standards, and builder responsibility.

The Build Show is partnering with Every Shelter to raise $50,000 to help families impacted by the Earthquakes in Turkey and Syria. We've already made our donations to get things started. Take part in our campaign at:
