Walton McCarthy designs modern-day underground shelters to protect clients from long-term effects of disasters

When Walton McCarthy started building bomb shelters in 1978, he found the concrete shelters inadequate for protecting against nuclear attack. He devised a modern-day shelter that is airtight, fully self-contained and able to protect against natural disasters as well as nuclear, chemical and biological weapons. Now, demand for the shelters is so high that he has not been able to match it with production and he is increasing his manufacturing facility by 50,000 square feet to meet the demand.
