In the world of construction, people are shifting towards the idea of using an old steel container and transforming it into a one of a kind accommodation unit to live in. As technology becomes more advanced, people are looking for modern and easy alternatives of construction. One of the most recent trends includes converting shipping containers into accommodation for guests. These accommodation units are unique and offer a different take on prefabricated buildings in South Africa.
By comparing an accommodation container to that of a traditionally constructed unit informs people more about the benefits of the new age trend in prefabricated buildings. When it comes to constructing buildings for accommodation the more traditional way, construction workers would generally have to use materials such as bricks and cement to build a structure on the site, but when you choose to convert an old shipping container into an accommodation container it introduces other elements into this new building system.
Taking on the task of converting an old, used shipping container into a modern and stylish accommodation container takes a lot of precise planning. We at Container King are passionate about container conversions. All of our containers can be converted into anything that you require. The cost to convert our containers is usually far less than what it would cost to construct a building the traditional way for the same purpose. As an added bonus, it can be done at a fraction of the time it would generally take to build using the traditional way.
One of the main advantages in using a shipping container as an accommodation unit would have to be the fact that the container body acts as the structure of the accommodation unit. Each part of the structure is manufactured in the factory prior to any conversions taking place. This means that the builders and constructors only need to assemble windows and doors into each container. This can be done by removing some of the steel from the container and replacing it with more durable materials such as glass for windows. This method ultimately cuts down the amount of time spent on construction in comparison to the traditional methods of building.
Accommodation containers reduce the amount of labour-intensive work during construction by at least seventy percent. Building an accommodation unit the traditional way requires builders and construction workers to physically be involved in the entire construction process. By choosing to invest in an accommodation container, it can save you money without having to sacrifice the quality of the unit.
Furthermore, accommodation containers can easily be moved from one area to another. Unlike traditional accommodation units, these containers can be transported to any desired location. The more traditional accommodation options are usually fixed to a specific area, making it the responsibility of the client to travel between their own home and the accommodation unit.
Our steel accommodation containers are the most practical solution for their application. Purchase yours today or choose to rent this container or any other prefabricated building today.
