The assembly and construction approach used to build the cargo container Apartment Building is cost-efficient, minimizes waste and dramatically speeds up the timeline for a construction project.

Here’s how:
  • Individual container modules are prepped, built out and stockpiled at an off-site fabrication facility.
  • Meanwhile, site preparation (foundations, utility systems, roads, etc.) occurs.
  • Once the site is ready, the completed modules are put into place, allowing the final hook-ups and finishing to be done. For an apartment building project the size pictured here, this process is approximately 2-3 months.
