Building containers

Building containers and their development

Building containers, cabins, site barracks – these are all names for the most well-known and most widespread type of residential module. The building container was created on the basis of a pragmatic requirement for temporary facilities for construction workers.

The module must be relatively light and compact in size so that it can be easily loaded and transported with a normal truck, and also easily fitted in the designated location.


Today's building container has come a long way from         the former unsightly site barracks. In addition to                   the exterior and interior appearance, in particular thermal comfort and fire resistance have also improved considerably. There are many changes and the most important thing is that the module is really modular. Infinite variations for use in modular construction can be produced. It can have different standards of materials used, varying numbers of windows and doors, and can be adapted to connect with other modules to create a larger room. The possibilities are endless and depend primarily on the plans of the client.

Parameters of building containers

Although the standard size of the building container is 6,058 × 2,438 x 2,890 mm, it can of course be manufactured in other dimensions. The primary limitation is the possibilities of transporting the unit to its destination.

The skeleton of the residential container is usually formed by a welded frame made of galvanized steel with an extended service life. The outer shell is insulated sandwich filling. The inner side is made of laminated chipboard, for example, while the outside is covered by galvanized sheet with easily washable paint. The roof is also usually made of trapezoidal sheet metal. The floor is made of plywood or chipboard covered with PVC linoleum. Containers can be fully equipped with sanitary equipment, heating and lighting.

All containers and container assemblies meet the most demanding construction market requirements and are certified according to the strict local standards applicable in the countries where our company operates.
