Disused grain silos long considered an eyesore in Johannesburg, South Africa are now topped with four layers of reclaimed storage containers and ready to house hundreds of eager students. Mill Junction is an innovative housing project offering secure, comfortable, reasonably priced housing that could help raise the number of students who actually earn a degree.

The 11-story grain silos make up the bulk of the complex, with many apartments contained within. Windows have been cut into the silos and a paint job will help unify them with the colorful containers stacked on top. Mill Junction will contain 375 individual apartments as well as libraries, lounges, computer rooms and study facilities.

The height of the complex will give students some of the best views in the city, especially those lucky enough to get the storage container units with balcony space. About half of South African undergraduate students drop out of school, partially due to the high cost of living. This project offers energy-efficient, low-cost accommodation with details like motion-sensor lighting and common green space on the roof.

Construction was completed in January 2014 and students are now in residence.

Cost of container storage varies based on your particular use and application. Containers come in many sizes and with different modifications, and consequently can vary widely in price. A simple container targeted at a backyard storage application can be difficult to compare with a container that has had extensive modifications made to it for a business to use as a temporary office.  As with all products, you really need to “go inside” the product and drill into the details when comparing prices, in order to understand your options.

Know where you want to put your storage container, but not sure if you should put something underneath it? Whenever AZ Containers sell a container to a person who will use it for storage, the person buying it typically asks "what kind of site prep is necessary"? 
AZ Containers recommends these options :

  • Placing the container on 6 x 6 timbers.
  • Placing the container on a bed of Crushed Stone.
  • Placing it directly on Asphalt. (You may want to place the corners with 2 x 10 wood planks to the corners of the container doesn’t sink into the asphalt during periods of high temperatures.)

The only thing to be concerned about is that the surface is fairly level, smooth, and firm. The truck and trailer weigh over 30,000 lb., a concrete pad, asphalt paving or other sturdy surface is preferred and most drivers will not drive off of a road or paved surface. If you need an off road delivery it is best to discuss the road condition in advance. In considering the resting location for a container Asphalt, gravel, grass, earth, concrete surfaces are all acceptable. The container is self-supporting at the four corners. Therefore, on soft unstable surfaces we recommend each corner casting to be supported with a concrete footing, railroad ties, asphalt or a bed of gravel to spread the weight. This is also very important for container doors to operate smoothly. We recommend to keep them out of the wet mud and dirt as the container will last longer.

Was The Container Spot Primed? - Companies will claim to prep a container and then shoot it with a paint that has a "zinc primer built in". That's not a bad thing in and of itself, however, I feel it is better to take it one step further. At AZ Container we recommend spot priming any rust spots with a "rust converter" which turns any surface rust into a hard substance which is ready to be painted. It's similar to POR 15 which is used in the restoration of automobiles that have rust.
