When a container has reached the end of its shipping days, it takes approx 8000kWh of energy to melt down the 8000lb of steel that its been constructed from. So, using the containers for other purposes is a great ecological solution.
The basic design of containers lends itself to many uses, as well as a great deal more if converted. They can be used for:
-Portable Business Units
-Housing For Generators
-And Much More!
The list is endless. Walcon was recently involoved in an incredibly ambitious project which featured on the famous Channel 4 program ‘Grand Designs’ in which an architect built his home out of containers supplied by ourselves! Find out more about this here.
