Quality Assured



Bunkers Slideshow 01.jpg


Are you prepared for a fire emergency?

Forrest Concrete Constructions have been installing in and above-ground concrete structures (buildings) in Ballarat, Bendigo, Echuca, Seymour, Eildon, Alexandra, Melbourne, Castlemaine, Daylesford, and all over regional Victoria.


Forrest Concrete Construction has been involved in major concrete construction work for over thirty years, so we know how to build concrete structures.


For a quote on an above or in-ground concrete bunker, contact via email or phone Forrest Concrete Constructions on 0438 507 176.

There are regulations and technical standards covering bunkers. The Building Commission has released an information sheet highlighting issues that should be considered when you are considering installing a Concrete Underground Bunker.

  • Concrete Bunkers need to be well signposted to assist emergency services

  • Concrete Bunkers should be located so that collapsing structures or trees do not prevent access

  • Vegetation conditions need to be maintained around the home and vault

  • Concrete Bunkers should not be located too close to fire hazards

  • Concrete Bunkers should be located so there is a safe path from the home to the vault. This may involve removing and maintaining vegetation on that pathway

  • The Bunkers must be able to withstand high wind and the impact of collapsing structures or trees

  • Underground Concrete Bunkers need to be waterproof and able to withstand vehicles driving on top of them

  • The Bunkers must be resistant to flames, high temperatures and ember attack

  • Doors should be fire resistant and made from material that has relatively low conductivity

  • With a Concrete Bunker installed, you can leave early with the peace of mind that, should your house be lost, your precious possessions will be safe

  • The Bunkers are engineered from high strength 40 MPS reinforced concrete, not lightweight materials and are a solid structure, as can be seen in the adjacent pictures

  • The Bunkers must be able to keep out smoke and must be well insulated to prevent the temperature inside the vault from increasing beyond a safe level

  • Remember that in bushfire conditions, services and equipment such as electricity, phone, radio, water pumps and sewerage become inoperable

  • A Concrete Bunker should not be used for any other purpose that prevents its use in case of fire e.g: storing flammable liquid

  • The Bunker should be kept clean and dry and free of spiders, snakes and other animals.

  • A Concrete Bunker should be used as part of an overall fire plan, rather than a single solution


If a fire comes through your area it is recommended you leave early
to guarantee the safety of you and your family.

With a Concrete Bunker, you will have peace of mind knowing that all your personal items and effects will be safe.

In light of the fires that destroyed Marysville, Kinglake, and other rural communities, the Victorian State Government has released a list of 52 towns that are Victoria’s most vulnerable to Bushfires.

If you reside or have a property in or near any of the following bushfire-prone areas and towns you should think about installing a Concrete Bunker NOW.
(Some of the towns mentioned have already been affected by first since)

We service all over Victoria and NSW.
