The popularity of shipping container housing has been steadily increasing in Europe as a modern, affordable and urban living option, but BigSteelBox is currently focused on portable living spaces for work camps in remote areas.
The company recently merged with Mission Group, a developer whose condo building expertise has been utilized to create a display of living quarters out of a big steel box. The living quarters is one 40′ BigSteelBox modified into two separate spaces, each with a private bathroom, built-in cabinets and wardrobe, wall-mounted media hub, 32″ inch swivel TV and extra long single bed. The result is a finish that rivals a high-end condo.
“A lot of companies operating in remote camps have trouble keeping their workers. Good accommodations make a difference and these luxury boxes beat a trailer and bunk beds any day,” says Jason Siebenga, president of BigSteelBox. “They are indestructible, portable, and much cheaper to move than traditional portable housing, modified containers as living quarters are ideal for camps in remote areas.”
