Taking this concept to the next level, containers are also used as the basis for commercial modular office complexes. Using multiple boxes, the 40 foot by 8 foot or 20 foot by 8 foot architecture allows the designer almost limitless configurations. Set three 40’ containers side by side and you’ll have a nice 24’ x 40’, 960 square foot modular building that can be modified in a plant, delivered and set up in a matter of days.
Natural disasters leave victims who continue to suffer long after the media turns its focus elsewhere. People who lose their homes and all of their possessions may feel lucky to be alive, but they need a place where to continue to live. Recently, some architects and others interested in providing temporary, emergency housing have begun to make use of a resource that seems plentiful – metal shipping containers.
To insure your shipping container home or building is safe, the local building authority or popularly known as ”the building inspector” is likely to require you to provide a set of fully engineered drawings and calculations of your shipping container house/building which are likely required to be sealed by a professional engineer that is certified for the state or province in which the building is going to be placed. You’ll need an engineer experienced in this type of design, if you need a reference for someone who is very proficient in this field please contact us and we will connect you with a qualified engineer who we have worked with for many years to assist you.
Shelves and fixed work stations can be installed inside as well. They are typically made from steel, but the owner can select other materials. The design and size are also individually determined.
The most basic transformation of containers into portable offices include taking a single unit and installing a ”person door”, some windows and finish the interior by framing and insulating the walls and ceiling, adding lights and electric duplexes (plugs) as required. The ceiling is covered with a ceiling tile or pre textured gypsum, the walls are covered with vinyl covered gypsum and the floor is covered in commercial grade tile. Some electric base board heat and air conditioning units are installed and the container doors are sealed and welded closed. There you have it, a very strong and very portable office.
Data centers in a container or portable modular data centers, fit servers, storage and networking equipment into a standard container outfitted with an air conditioning system. Modular data centers are prepared for fast deployment, energy efficiency, and high-density computing to offer data center ability at a lower cost as compared to traditional construction techniques. The modular data centers significantly decrease the building time from years to a matter of months and in the event of a disaster could be deployed in a few days.
