Container Building "Box Office"

An office space made from reused shipping containers, the "Box Office" is being built on a land parcel in a post-industrial neighborhood of the city and is quickly becoming an attraction for local start-ups. Providence mayor David Cicilline, who was on hand for the ground-breaking, said, "Such creative, environmentally-conscious developments are part of a growing trend in Providence of green innovation and social entrepreneurship."

The Box Office will be a model of a small, energy-efficient building, using 25 percent less energy than a conventional new office building.

The brightly colored three-story building is being constructed from 32 old shipping containers (94 tons of steel to be precise), which will house 12 office units. The building's contemporary design, environmental philosophy and inexpensive small units have already attracted several small businesses, artists, and start-ups that are a vital part of Providence's growing creative economy. The site will reduce stormwater run-off into the combined storm sewer by 67 percent through the use of bio-swales (also known as rain gardens) which allow storm water to infiltrate back into the ground where, through phytoremediation, the plants contribute to the filtration of the water. The Box Office will be constructed using environmentally-friendly materials that have been specified by the developer and architect.

Container Building School

This is one more example of construction realized with containers in Bogota (Colombia).

Six 40 foot containers were used to construct the classroom in less than 30 days.

The containers were modified offsite to include wall panels, windows, wood laminate flooring and then placed into position with a crane. Contact us
