BDA partnered the development of bespoke semi-monocoque glass reinforced plastic insulated panels. These panels are designed for temperatures that fall to -57 C celsius and incorporate triple glazed vision panels.

Adjustable hydraulic and telescopic legs with ski pad feet were incorporated to cope with the rapidly changing snow and ice terrain.
