The popularity of using repurposed shipping containers to create commercial, industrial, and residential space is growing at a tremendous rate. We're seeing “pop-up” bars, retail stores, offices and even homes being made out of modified shipping containers. The versatility, lower cost, and safety of these containers make them perfect for a variety of projects.



In a day of innovative projects, from virtual reality to the new Apple headquarters in Cupertino, California, there’s no question that projects and innovation are getting ‘bigger and better’ with more complexity and larger in scope. The FMI Corporation  (FMI) explains in their whitepaper Rethinking Offsite Construction that the downside with current innovation is that “many of these projects face chronic cost overruns and schedule delays. In fact, within the construction and building industry, most accept the fact that nothing ever gets built on time or on budget.”


The importance of achieving work-life balance has become a goal for many individuals in the workforce. Companies are starting to see the value in this balance, and many are taking action to change their workplace as a result. In the past, the main drivers for businesses were primarily financial. Cost savings measured success. However, that has changed and key drivers now include work-life balance, attraction, and retention of staff, employee satisfaction, and overall well-being. Why the change? A recent study by Mental Health America (MHA) reports that “one in four Americans describe themselves as ‘super stressed’.”

Beating the Statistics: Modular Buildings for Emergency Space

"Nobody expects an emergency or disaster -- especially one that affects them, their employees, and their business personally. Yet the simple truth is that emergencies and disasters can strike anyone, anytime, and anywhere. You and your employees could be forced to evacuate your company when you least expect it." - Elaine L. Chao,

Keys to Building a Safe and Secure Facility

Frequently, security features seem to be an afterthought to a new building project (offsite construction plan for example). This oversight or choice to not plan for security features during the programmatic periods of the project - when research and decision making is done to develop the scope of work - can be dangerous and also very costly down the road. If vulnerabilities aren’t discovered and addressed at the onset, an owner may be faced with significant Change Orders, potential lawsuits, insurance issues, or worse, a tragic incident that results in injuries or death.

Permit and Job Site Requirements - How To Prepare

Construction is an ever-changing industry, which means it can be tough to stay current and compliant on any changes, especially as they apply to permits and job site requirements. These requirements vary by geographical location; what may have been true for a building project in one county last year may be totally different one county over this year. It's important to thoroughly research any and all projects before any construction begins.

Making the World More Accessible

Last Tuesday the U.S. Senate voted on a historic piece of legislation. Known to the public as the U.N. Disabilities Treaty, the document borrows wording and spirit from the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. The treaty has so far been signed by 155 nations throughout the world; a list which unfortunately does not include the United States, where the vote fell just short of the two thirds majority required to ratify the treaty. Although the treaty can be voted on again in next year’s congress, for the one in six Americans that are disabled, that’s too long.
