The shipping container housing development was created using moveable and reusable parts, repurposing shipping containers to offer a sustainable, cost-effective and flexible housing solution for Ealing Council. The shipping container homes were fully constructed, fitted and finished in 24 weeks at our factory in Cornwall, allowing the container homes to be installed quickly at Hope Gardens, with minimal additional works required on site. With the reusability of the shipping container housing at Hope Gardens at the core of its design, this innovative model is crucial to addressing the long-term affordability and sustainability of the built environment for Ealing Council, previously placing families in housing earmarked for being knocked down, and even paying for families to stay in bed and breakfast accommodation. The awards set out to recognise the most inspirational projects and achievements of property professionals throughout London. Winners will be announced in May Do you have an idea for a container conversion?
We are currently in Beta version and updating this search on a regular basis. The single-family module is based on a cargo container, constructed with strong materials emitting a low cost, and low environmental impact. The project is founded on community participation, improving the quality of health and housing in the Pesquero II settlement through sustainable materials. The design focuses on Egyptian life around a single house unit with all the necessary needs for a small family. Sheltainer aims to offer a flexible solution with new open spaces, activities and homes.
Our Case Studies section is a place to seek inspiration as you think about a future container project. For those who are more familiar with the opportunities that shipping containers present, inspiration becomes a more tactical affair. As an example, even if you know you want a container home, what should it look like? As you start to brainstorm your own design ideas, a great place to start is looking at what others have already produced.
Devin C. This case study is designed to examine the feasibility and possible implementation of the use of modified steel shipping container units, as temporary relief housing for victims of natural disasters. In this study we will analyze an on-going shipping container project being constructed in Santa Rosa, CA as well as use previously constructed research on this type of construction.
