Taplanes have provided their one piece Alpha cubicles for the Halley VI Research Station in Antarctica. Built to house up to 52 crew members, the station comprises labs, offices, bedrooms and a social area, is the sixth version of the station to be placed on the Brunt Ice Shelf and is home to scientists studying various environmental changes.
The Alpha cubicle was ideal as the station is tight on space. By utilising this more compact cubicle, the architect was able to optimise the limited space available in the Research Station’s bedrooms. Ensuring a completely watertight product is vital give the lack of a local plumber.
