Shipping containers for small businesses!
Does anyone out there remember that old song “Anything You Can Do I Can Do Better?” That song perfectly captures the heart of the shipping container movement. Anything a developer or builder can do with traditional wood frame construction, a shipping container can do better, and “better” is defined and quantifiable in a number of ways. Shipping containers for small businesses just makes a ton of good sense. Contact us to find out how.
Reasons why shipping containers make good sense . . .
Let’s talk about cost first of all, since money is always a topic in debates like this. Shipping containers for small businesses, used shipping containers, can be retrofitted and refurbished at a lower cost than traditional wood frame construction of a comparably-sized home for rent or office suite. That is not conjecture nor is it a bold, wishful statement. It is fact! And that lower cost is passed on to you, the buyer/ lessee. Again, a statement of fact! If a lower leasing price is of any interest to you, shipping containers meet that criteria.
Next, let’s talk about impact on the environment. If you are looking for eco-friendly construction again, shipping containers get the nod. Wood-framing of an average 1,500 square foot home uses about 14,000 board feet of lumber. With shipping containers, no lumber is used for framing because the container is already constructed. The only wood used when retrofitting a container is used for the floors, ceilings, and paneling. Again, this is not conjecture. And since there are literally millions of unused containers in the world, there are no other materials like iron ore used in the construction. Again, a win for the environment!
Now let’s talk about flexibility! Once you build a wood-frame home or office suites for rent, there is no flexibility. The original shape of the structure is set in concrete, and changing that shape is a difficult and costly procedure. Not so with shipping containers! If you find you need more room with a shipping container home or office suite, you simply add on another shipping container. They are designed to easily add on and stack like building blocks. It requires very little time, effort, or cost to connect two containers and add a connecting door/passage way. It is a matter of days connecting two containers as opposed to months of building an addition.
And finally let’s talk about an ethereal reason for using shipping containers: they are funky and different, and most definitely appeal to those who think outside the box and are looking to make a creative statement.
But this is all just words on a paper. What you really need to do is go see the shipping container revolution “in the flesh,” and you can do that in the Fort Worth area at Box Office Warehouse Suites, the first, and only, business park in Fort Worth (in the Alliance area) made entirely from shipping containers. Go see for yourself just how practical and useful Alliance shipping container construction can be.
