  • 1-17-2014 Samaritan’s Purse Multi-Purpose Command Center

    Samaritan’s Purse asked us to build a van truck body that could be not only a command center but also a classroom and an office. This is the end result. Two rooms and three slideouts provide plenty of space, and the central table offers a great space for coordinating disaster relief efforts. It can also double as a mini lecture hall, complete with a flat screen TV at the front. The rear room is a comfortable counseling area that can be closed off from the rest of the van for private counseling sessions. The trailer will be used throughout the United States as part of Samaritan Purse’s efforts to help those in need at disaster sites.
