Adaptable, Repurposed and Durable: Alternative Uses for Shipping Container

Real estate, office spaces, ecofriendly farming initiatives and miscellaneous storage space: you name it; we can build it with shipping containers.

At Saf-T-Box, we are constantly on the lookout for the latest and greatest shipping container initiatives. Below are a few projects we have stumbled upon within the last few months. Imaginative shipping container projects such as these inspire us, and we hope will inspire you too.

Temporary office spaces with a small footprint

Short term, small spaces were developed specifically for startups in San Francisco.

Small housing and rooms for the homeless

A homeless shelter in Tampa, Florida was constructed from shipping containers.


Waldorf School in Orange County added much needed classroom space

Using 32 40-foot containers, 10,000 square feet of space as well as bathrooms, offices, a science lab, student lounge and an auditorium were added.

Toronto’s first shipping container market

This street food market was economically developed to make it accessible for marginalized entrepreneurs to start a small business.

Do you have an idea of your own? Shipping container homes are an often-searched topic, but they can be used for much more. Cargo containers are ideal for any upcoming construction project you may have – man cave, restaurant, nonprofit organization, pop up shop and more. Give our experts at Saf-T-Box a call and we will establish which size and type of container is best suited for you.
