Repurposing shipping containers into new structures is a high-demand service. They are strong and durable. These structures can be converted into any type of building. Slight modifications result in useful and profitable structures. But what if you need more room?
Great news! You can connect multiple shipping containers together to create a single, spacious structure. All it takes is a little bit of engineering and a little bit of extra setup time.
Creating A Multi-Container Unit From Connecting Shipping Containers
Creating a structure out of multiple containers starts in the engineering department. To begin, our engineers will look at the purpose of the structure. In addition, they will consider any special needs you may have for the interior. Finally, they will create a support system for the containers.
One side of each container will be removed. They will be connected together at their final destination. While they are being modified, new supports will be put into place according to the specs given by the engineering department. This ensures the integrity of the container remains durable for years.
When the containers arrive at the new location and are put into place, our assembly team will either weld or caulk the two containers together to form a single unit. When completed, they will install a threshold cover in the interior to protect the seam. This will also improve safety. Next, they will place a ridge cap on the roof of the container unit over the seam to prevent any potential water from seeping into the unit.
Now electricity and plumbing are hooked up. The new building is ready to be used. The process of connecting shipping containers is efficient.
If the building needs to be moved at a later date, the weld or caulk can easily be removed. The pieces can be separated and the building shipped by truck to its new location.
Benefits of Connecting Shipping Containers
As you can see, the process is straightforward. Connecting shipping containers into a new building structure will save your business money. Building a new space takes more time. Connecting shipping containers is cost- and time-effective. Additionally, you can secure two or more containers together. You decide the amount of space needed. In some cases, you can even connect shipping containers on top of each other to make multi-layered units.
Repurposing storage containers is not only an environmentally friendly way to build a new structure, it is also cost-effective. Depending on the space you are making, using a container can be 50 percent less expensive than building a brand new structure.
