Beehive Shelter Systems, is an architectural / engineering firm led by Lane Lythgoe. The firm is dedicated to NBCE (Nuclear, Biological, Chemical, Electromagnetic) Bunker design throughout the United States. In recent years Beehive Shelter Systems has seen global interest in its bunker projects. Major disasters, civil unrest and the threat of terrorism has led citizens to focus on being prepared for emergencies – sending the bunker industry into a growth boom period that does not appear to be slowing.
ArchiCAD has been the software of choice in use by Lythgoe and the team at Beehive for the past eleven years to build safe environments for the family and property. Lythgoe’s expertise and knowledge of the highly specialized bunker requirements has been recognized in his recently receiving a U.S. patent for a pre-cast bunker design that was completely designed in ArchiCAD.
