US Silo company to build a "Safe T" hurricane-proof home at 2018 at Kinnick Stadium

Sukup Manufacturing is "thrilled to announce" that a team from the company will build a Sukup Safe T Home at the annual CyHawk football game on September 8, 2018.

The build will take place at Kinnick Stadium in Iowa City, USA and near to the Nile Kinnick statue immediately south of the stadium, beginning at 13:00.

Former professional football players Tim Dwight and Sage Rosenfels will lead the construction team, which will also include well-known former student athletes, such as Jeff Horner, Jack Whitver, Greg Brunner, Lane Danielsen, Jadda Buckley and many more. 


The Sukup Safe T Home is a hurricane-proof structure the company created from a modified grain bin. The home is hurricane-, earthquake-, fire-, termite- and machete-proof and can be constructed in one day or less. There are 350 Safe T Homes around the world in locations from Haiti to Peru. In 2016, all 200 homes in Les Cayas, Haiti, survived the Category 4 Hurricane Matthew with minimal damage; by contrast only 10 percent of traditional housing survived the disaster.
