Sometimes the reason to go with containerized housing is the portability factor. In scenarios where the housing needs to move from location to location, shipping containers are the ideal solution because of the ability to move the containers and to quickly setup the containers use them for the duration of the projects and then move them on to the next location.

Work camps in remote locations such as drilling sites and mining areas present a host of logistical challenges. AZ Containers can construct containerized work camps with various configurations and functions. For example, on larger work camps, 40' containers can be repurposed into dedicated sleeping quarters, sleeping up to 16 crew members; other units can then be dedicated shower and restroom facilities. Because it is containerized, shipping can be done through common carriers, offloading with standard cranes, and setup complete with minimal construction.

FEMA:
FEMA and other relief organizations use AZ’s portable buildings as disaster shelters and temporary housing in recovery efforts. Our boxes are delivered to the location quickly and picked up when the crisis is over. They are secure and can be modified in many ways to meet your needs. Our containers are also useful for storing equipment and supplies that will be needed to help the people of the affected area.

Fire Fighters:
The forest service utilizes our boxes for temporary living and sleeping quarters for fire fighters while they are in the field. This arrangement allows the fire fighters to get the rest they need without needing to transport them all the way back to their permanent fire house, thereby saving time, money, and ultimately lives.

Shipping containers for sale can come in a variety of conditions.  Generally speaking, containers are either used, refurbished, or new.  Used containers can vary greatly.  ‘As is’ boxes are not usually wind and watertight, or there could be something functionally wrong with them.  Examples of the issues often seen with ‘as is’ containers are holes in the floor or soft spots, extensive rust, broken gaskets, doors that do not open or close, and holes in the roof.  These containers are great for people that do not necessarily need a perfect container.

Many used containers are in wind and watertight condition.  This means that there are no holes in the container so water can get in and that it protects the goods inside from the wind.  Because used containers can vary greatly, it is important to really look at these boxes.  Make sure you do the following when checking out a used container:

1.) Open up the doors, and try to close them again.

Sometimes doors or hinges can sustain damage from being bumped into by vehicles or other containers during shipping.

2.) Walk around the container to inspect any rust spots.

If there are any large dents, they will probably turn into large rust spots eventually. No used container will be perfect, but by thoroughly inspecting the container, you will know what you are purchasing.

3.) Inspect any internal flooring.

Many containers have wood flooring, either plywood or particleboard, and you should check for rotting wood, or even potential mold problems.

New or ‘One-Trip’ containers are in the best shape.  They will have minimal dents and very little rust. A container can never be purchased new and never used.  These units are built in Asia and are shipped to America, hence the ‘one-trip’ notation.  If you are worried about the way a container will look or if you don’t want to do any maintenance work on the unit, a new container might be the best option.

Exclusively using abandoned and recycled materials, a group called Citiq Developments has turned unused grain silos into student housing for 400 students. They perched four stories of stacked storage containers atop the silos in this project called Mill Junction in Johannesburg.

The eco-friendly nature of this building’s structure doesn’t stop on the outside. Citiq estimates the building’s features to decrease energy by 50 percent in comparison to a conventional building. The indispensable shipping container parts of the greater structure allow for long-standing sustainability that matches this energy-conserving efficiency.

Supplemental to the basic living spaces inside of the containers are communal kitchens, Wi-Fi, study space, a gym, and other recreation rooms. A colorful and inviting roof offers more lounge space, allowing for sprawling views of the city. This is not the first or last shipping container housing project in Johannesburg, but it still serves as an innovative example of the extent to which storage containers prove to be logical design solutions.
