Shipping Container

Featured Projects

After 20 years of pioneering the modified shipping container industry, we’ve completed more than a few projects (over a million square feet worth, actually). We bring complex problem-solving experience and scalable manufacturing processes together to serve a range of industrial businesses. Here are some of the top projects that showcase Falcon Structures’ container creativity and expertise.


Container Locker Room & Breakroom

Faced with the threat of losing talent and valued contractors due to lackluster amenities, Clarios, an energy storage company, turned to containers for a solution. Falcon created a timely modular structure made of 10 40-foot containers. The bottom five were modified to include a wall of 10 shower stalls, as well as a large opening for lockers and benches. The five top containers are accessible by an exterior staircase and serve as a breakroom for 70+ workers with a private foreman's office. 

Just five months after production started at our factory in Austin, Clarios' Missouri-based team was able to enjoy their all-new breakroom and locker room. 

Energy Transfer

1,000+ Miles of Pipeline & 317 Container Enclosures

Over a thousand miles of crude oil pipeline runs from the Dakotas to the wetlands of Louisiana. Our customer, Energy Transfer, has unmanned monitoring stations located all along the rural pipeline. They needed an enclosure solution that would protect their valuable equipment while also providing access for regular maintenance.

Falcon Structures manufactured a time and cost-effective solution with 317 10-foot container enclosures. The weathertight design and reinforced roofs can withstand the harshest climates along the pipeline. We scaled production to meet Energy Transfer’s needs and delivered five containers per week until all of their stations were enclosed.

When COVID-19 hit, the Hy-Vee supermarket chain had to quickly rework their infrastructure to accommodate online grocery shopping and curbside pickup. Falcon Structures helped the company continue to generate revenue in uncertain times with a fleet of 40-foot double-wide shipping containers that served as curbside kiosks. Within just two months, 100 modified containers were manufactured, shipped, and installed in store parking lots across Hy-Vee’s eight-state region. 

OBI Seafood

Comfortable Housing for Remote Alaskan Fishermen

From March to September, OBI Seafoods sends workers to remote locations for the Alaskan fishing season. Their wood-based housing options were falling apart, and onsite construction was not feasible due to the rural setting.

Falcon modified our existing Jack & Jill floor plan into 14 40-foot living containers, complete with full bathrooms, climate control, and spacious living spaces. We completed the containers just 35 days after starting production. Since containers are inherently transportable, we shipped them by rail from Texas to Seattle, then via barge to their final destination in Alaska. They were ready on-time for the new fishing season, and they’re now the most coveted lodgings among the fishermen. 


Grid-Replacing Solar Power Modules

Bringing off-grid power to rural operations is no easy feat. Fortunately, modified shipping containers provide the transportability and durability to make it possible. EWX Solar Solutions partnered with Falcon Structures to design 11 power modules from 20-foot containers. The top canopy holds 15 solar panels and expands to collect solar energy or collapses for easy transportation. Inside, the boxes are split with a firewall to separate the powerful generator from wall-mounted batteries and a technician workspace. 

Falcon Structures and Martin Marietta came together to create the new standard for aggregate company batch houses: a three-container, two-story structure. It’s portable and durable enough for the rugged industry, small enough to sit near a quarry, and spacious enough for a break room and office. The double-wide lower level has a bathroom and kitchenette for workers and drivers, while the top container acts as a private office for the plant manager. This batch house not only exceeded Martin Marietta’s expectations, but it also inspired other aggregate companies to replicate the design.
