MULTI-CONTAINER BUILDINGS

Modular Shipping Container
Buildings Save Time and Money

Sturdy, weather-resistant and modular, repurposed steel shipping containers are suitable for an infinite number of industrial, military and workplace applications. Using heavy-duty ISO containers as a blank canvas, our engineering and design teams can customize these structures based on your unique goals and specifications.

Those who choose to build shipping container structures can expect to:

  • Save money. Shipping container-based buildings compress time to revenue
  • Save time. Assembling shipping container-based modules on site is significantly faster than traditional construction
  • Reduce hassle. A quality-controlled building process ensures quotes and deadlines are reliable

Shipping Container Buildings Are Easier to Permit Than Ever Before

Falcon Structure's Evaluation Service Report (ESR 4163), gives building code officials confidence in our containers. We streamline the permitting process by providing shipping containers approved for use as building materials under the ICC's acceptance criteria, AC462.

VIEW FULL REPORT

What does ESR 4163 mean for you, the customer?

Falcon’s code-compliant shipping container modules make permitting of container-based structures for occupancy not only possible but streamlined and faster. Both you and local coding officials can be confident that our shipping containers are safe and structurally sound.

Why use Falcon Structures' code compliant containers?

Developers, architects, engineers, general contractors and occupants of container structures need to be 100% confident the base building material used in a structure is safe, thereby passing code inspection more quickly and with less hassle. Falcon’s code-compliant containers ensure any code official can quickly and easily determine the containers used in a structure are code-compliant.

Count on Us

Why Developers Count on Us

We're an experienced in-house container modification company that can provide and modify code-compliant container modules. Falcon Structures is also a resource for best practices and referrals to other container structure experts.

Why Architects Count on Us

Architects have confidence that the project will not be stalled or rejected due to permitting issues. We can also offer guidance for creating structurally feasible container buildings.

Why Engineers Count on Us

Falcon provides a proprietary, detailed internal design guide of container technical specifications enabling engineers to confidently design a safe structure. We've already done most of the leg work when it comes to container research.

Why General Contractors
Count on Us

Our off-site manufacturing and on-site installation experience bolsters confidence in the timeline and execution of the overall project. Contractors can be confident our containers will be delivered on time and on budget.

Why is building with shipping containers so much faster than traditional construction?

modular_vs_traditional_building

While customers prepare the site, our production team modifies shipping containers in-house and then sends them out for delivery. Once the modules arrive onsite, local contractors assemble the conex containers like LegoTM bricks.

As illustrated in the infographic, simultaneously manufacturing the container modules as contractors prepare the site dramatically truncates the construction timeline. 

When creating Fortress Obetz, Falcon Structures and local contractors assembled 122 of our modified conex containers into a three-story public gathering space in just 10 working days. Since the entire project was completed in less than a year – half the time traditional construction would have taken – the customer was able to profit months earlier thanks to the advantages of modular construction.

Can Be Used For:

Public Spaces & Stadiums

While customers prepare the site, our production team modifies shipping containers in-house and then sends them out for delivery. Once the modules arrive onsite, local contractors assemble the conex containers like LegoTM bricks. Simultaneously manufacturing the container modules as contractors prepare the site dramatically truncates the construction timeline on everything from stadiums to libraries.

Apartments & Multi-Family

Compress time to revenue by quickly assembling apartments and condos out of building code-compliant container modules. Modular construction makes developing even small awkward lots in urban locations a viable investment. Shipping container modules also require no oversize trucking permits. Develop everything from luxury condos to affordable public housing.
