Temporary Housing 101: What Is a Workforce Shipping Container Home?

Portability makes containers a great option for temporary housing.

We create modified shipping container homes for some of today’s largest employers and workforce housing providers. Our temporary housing units are ideal for teams who work in the following sectors:

How is your temporary housing constructed?

Our container homes are repurposed ISO shipping containers, also known as Conex boxes. The boxes are made from corrugated, Corten steel and designed for the rigors of open-ocean travel. At Falcon, we refurbish these prefabricated units into the most durable, cost-effective, portable housing options available.

Is your temporary housing portable?

Yes! Deploying our workforce housing units is fast and easy.  We can deliver to just about anywhere in the Continental United States. And setup only requires a flat surface with ample square footage (floor-plans are available in 40-foot and 20-foot lengths). If your jobsite moves, our container housing is easy to pack up and relocate.

Can temporary housing be modified?

Absolutely. Standard workforce housing units include:

  • Plumbing for a shower, sink, and toilet
  • Climate control (heating and air conditioning)
  • Lighting and electric
  • Wiring for telephone and Internet connections
  • Insulated walls and ceiling

In addition, we can work with you to create specific modifications based on your team’s needs. And if your workforce expands, we can help you create containers additions—either stacked or joined.
