GLOBAL CONTAINER PARTNERSHIPS is an organization that has perfected a method and system to economically convert retired international shipping containers into sustainable housing and community buildings such as medical facilities, schools and neighborhood centers. The proven system is based on matching a team of our experts with local citizens to create needed structures, to teach skills to local team members and to aid local economic development. This training and knowledge will better prepare the residents to help the advancement of their own communities while raising their own personal standard of living. The containers, made of steel or aluminum and designed to support extreme loads, are the building blocks of the construction. They may be assembled in a variety of configurations meeting specific requirement of site or community. They allow for the use of unskilled labor in constructing the buildings. They can provide secure space, support second floors and roofs, bridge uneven grades and generally establish the structural foundations for a successful building at costs well below conventional construction. In addition to the conversion, installation and transformation of containers into sustainable buildings; the GLOBAL CONTAINER PARTNERSHIPS team encourages and helps train community residents to take an active role in improving their living conditions, education and neighborhoods.

So I recently had the fortune of getting to tour what might be one of the biggest shipping container building companies in the US. Which happens to be right here in Charlotte. While they happened to be local, they have been developing container buildings all over the place. A lot of what they do is pop up trade show booths, but I was clued into some neat full building projects on the horizon. Here are some photos from my tour, check them

    This particular example is a residential duplex with one family upstairs and one family downstairs. The structure is made up of a total of four boxes. Two boxes are stacked on top of each other on the bravo side of the building, and two are stacked on the delta side. They leave a space in between the two stacks of boxes that is later built out with conventional building materials to make up the main living area and kitchen. The bedrooms and bathrooms are located in the actual connex boxes. There are no windows on the B or D sides and only one small window on the C side. The only way in and out is on the A side. The upper unit does have an attic access and a corrugated metal roof.
