Office containers: a cost-efficient solution to extend a container’s life
Office containers obtained from repurposed shipping containers are custom-built products manufactured to strike a balance between functionality and operational and aesthetic requirements.
Since cost-effectiveness and eco-friendliness have become imperatives across building construction sectors, which are held accountable for almost 15% of global CO2 emissions (Source: IEA), custom-built office containers have seen a spike in popularity that has resulted in a growth in demand from all sorts of industries and commercial activities, a wide range of customers that aim at reducing their carbon footprint while simultaneously achieving a greater and faster return on their investments.

In addition to this, other relevant aspects draw attention to these advanced solutions that rely on cutting-edge technologies, including time-saving transport and on-site assembly from specialized workers without many additional costs that could arise from construction sites.
Not only does an office container represent a sustainable alternative to landfills for shipping containers that have lived up to their average life span, but, due to a drop in labor and material costs, it also stands as good value for money that can easily replace traditional constructions, especially when it comes to working sites that require temporary and flexible solutions.

From external welding and coating for protection against weather threats to internal insulation to help reduce heat fluctuations, shipping containers turned into offices undergo several modifications carried out by highly skilled carpenters. Adding lighting, heating, and basic plumbing completes this challenging and creative process to achieve innovative and environmentally friendly products that are all-terrain, turnkey solutions tailored to customers’ needs.
