Lots of questions these days about reusing shipping containers in buildings.
Shipping containers are cheap and structurally sound. Why aren’t we seeing more of them here? They are not designed to be buildings, so it takes someone knowledgeable about building science to provide the right materials in the right place with the right equipment to make them comfortable, energy efficient, healthy, and durable.
In our first seminar on this subject, we have two commercial projects to be presented, from the perspective of a designer, a builder, and an engineer.
