WHAT IS A CONTAINER?
The Shipping Container Revolution was
started by Malcolm McLean, who, in 1956
changed the world by inventing the first
shipping container concept.

There are now
approximately 20
million TEU in
service in the
shipping lines
today, with over 55
million TEU on the
planet.
MV Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller has the largest cargo capacity
of any ship yet constructed, and is the longest ship in service
worldwide as of 2013. She can carry 18,270 TEU.

Form of recycling - every shipping line and leasing
company can only use these containers for ten
years before recertification or resale.
Very quick build time as structure already exists.
Container buildings can fit on small properties,
unusable by traditional construction.
Lower building costs. 20-30% cheaper than
traditional construction. Approx $100/sq.ft.
MODIFYING CONTAINERS



In Amsterdam and the UK, shipping containers have been
popular for student housing and apartments since 2005.
At about the same time in the US, people like Adam
Kalkin, Peter De Maria, and the Lo-Tek company in New
York began using the shipping container in contemporary
homes.
In mid 2006, David Cross of SG Block was featured by Bob
Vila and on many news programs because his company
built the first conventional looking container home for a
government project in St. Petersburg, Florida.
