Modular Building with Shipping Containers

 

 The Future of Modular Building With Shipping Containers

Due to cost to build and issues with permitting and finance we DO NOT at this time offer any single family homes built with used shipping containers.

Time Savings = Cost Savings

Fast Construction Process = Less Impact on Neighborhood During Construction

Eco Friendly = Recycling Helps the Environment

Durability = Safer in Natural Disasters

The Benefits

Environmentally Friendly
With environmentally friendly building becoming the norm, many developers and homeowners are turning to modern modular homes built with shipping containers as an alternative to resource wasting site built construction projects.   

Building with shipping containers reduces unnecessary costs, labor and time spent on wasteful materials.  Especially wood.  Whether you are interested in creating a single family, multi family or commercial modular building, the experts at USModular, Inc. can help you take the right steps to simply the process.

Recycled shipping containers pack more potential than meets the eye.  Our shipping container home designers can work with you to design your next project to meet all of your needs.  Constructing shipping container homes and buildings looks   relatively simple and  cost effective process…but involves many disciplines including designer, Architect, Structural Engineer, Civil Engineer , Landscape Architect,  Modular Shipping Container Factory , Mechanical /Electrical /Plumbing Consultants, Local and State Planning planners and inspectors,  General Contractor.     USModular, Inc. as the General Contractor coordinates all of the specialists to help with design, permitting, fabrication, interior and exterior finishes, foundation, transportation, crane, set and finish.

Durability

Shipping containers are built with steel frames and built to be stacked on top of each other and the structural frames can withstand over 100 tons of compressive force and to withstand movement around the world…so they are very durable. The steel frame structure gives shipping container homes/commercial buildings added strength against earthquake or fires as the structure is over 100 times stronger than required by most building codes. The exterior of the Shipping container will resist weathering for over 100 years.

   

The Savings

Sustainable and Eco-Friendly
Many developers and homeowners are attracted to the idea of utilizing recycled material i.e. shipping container – as an environmentally friendly method to build homes and commercial buildings.  This is a good reason to build with shipping container – as the majority of Shipping Containers sit empty in storage yards. Only about 1/3 of shipping containers are in use.  This means that the remaining unused shipping containers can be converted into homes or commercial buildings!    For each recycled shipping container builders are able to recycle a large amount of steel.  Along with reusing steel, traditional building materials such as bricks, mortar and wood don’t need to be used! Shipping Container Homes/ Commercial Buildings will take less energy to rum overt time as they use     ductless airflow system we can utilize high performing HVAC equipment and with highly insulated walls / R Values – the home/building will take less energy to heat and cool.
Time Savings

Shipping Container homes and commercial buildings are built faster than traditional construction     methods.  This is made possible because you already have the walls, floor and ceiling for your project built as part of the shipping container.  To build the house / commercial building some walls will need to be removed to make for larger open spaces and all Mechanical /Electrical and Plumbing will be installed as will doors, windows,    interior walls, and insulation and l fixtures to finish the job.

Designs and Uses

Shipping container homes and commercial buildings will most of the time maintain a modern or industrial look….which many owners and developers like.   The clean building lines, flat roofs and metal exterior are very appealing.   But the exteriors can also have a variety of cladding installed to give homes and buildings more traditional looks – with stucco or rock a common exterior cladding.
