Container City™ is an innovative and highly versatile system that provides stylish and affordable accommodation for a range of uses.
Devised by Urban Space Management Ltd, the Container City™ system uses shipping containers linked together to provide high strength, prefabricated steel modules that can be combined to create a wide variety of building shapes and adapted to suit most planning or end user needs.
This modular technology enables construction times and cost to be reduced by up to half that of traditional building techniques while remaining significantly more environmentally friendly.
To date Urban Space Management Ltd has successfully used the Container City™ system to create office space, retail space, artist studios, a nursery, youth centres and live / work space.
This low cost approach to housing needs has been commended by both government and private sectors alike, and in 2005 the Fawood Children’s Centre was shortlisted for the RIBA Stirling Prize.
