Two dozen modified shipping containers are being used to house the homeless.
The village that will spring up on the Sand Island site will offer electricity, plumbing and 24 hour security. It’s expected to house 75 to 100 people.
Shipping containers are so versatile and in many instances, a cheaper alternative to a permanent building. The use of containers as a building material has grown in popularity over the past few years due to their strength and affordability.
Other alternative uses:
- Fire and military training facilities
- School and office buildings
- Artists’ studios
- Exhibition spaces
- Cafes, bars and restaurants
- Shopping malls
- Experimental Labs
