Shipping containers meet light weight steel.
This concept is a marriage of our trusty light steel frame building method and the popular shipping container creating something truly unique and versatile. This home's proposed site was a rocky cliff-side location which required some out-the-box thinking to make the concept work.
The proposed site was largely inaccessible and extremely rocky making conventional building works almost impossible. As a result we designed a container structure as the super structure & added light steel frame building components to get the building in line with an upmarket residential structure. This structure simply wouldn't have been feasible without the flexibility our light weight steel provides.
A truly dynamic duo.
Containers make a decent solid frame, also their versatility means they can be stacked and orientated to service any need, be it residential, commercial or industrial. Add light steel frame and you have a recipe for unique structures that not only look great but allow for great design flexibility and a much simpler build process.
Ground floor plans.
Below we have the ground floor plans for the home, it is a unique yet familiar layout that despite it's unorthodox building method will provide a comfortable living environment.
The Big 5 ethos
This unique approach to building with the container acting as the shell to build on/around using light steel frame is a great example of the flexibility that our alternative building technology can bring. We are excited to share more projects of this nature with you in the future as we continue to grow. Here's to the world of structural innovation!
