About Shipping Container Homes

At Shipping Container Homes, quality design, environmental stewardship, and affordability are not conflicting ideas. We are committed to building a more sustainable future and protecting the great outdoors throughout all areas of our business. Our goal is to create spaces that enhance and expand your living space and add value to your home while embracing the idea that living smarter is better than living bigger.

COMMITMENT

RESPONSIBLE MATERIAL SOURCING

Our devotion to a greener future begins with our materials. Every Shipping Container Homes model is constructed with a variety of eco-friendly building materials and complies with even the most stringent of energy codes. The dimensional timber we source is FSC-certified, meaning that it comes from responsibly managed forests that provide environmental, social, and economic benefits. Our Energy-efficient windows and doors help reduce your power consumption while making your Hive Home more comfortable, allowing you to rely less on your heating and air conditioning units in all climate areas. At Shipping Container Homes, intention and innovation are at the heart of every design, focusing on features and materials that will extend the life of our product and support a more sustainable future for our environment.

MINIMAL WASTE

Beyond our commitment to green materials, we strive to create as little waste as possible when building each of our structures. Our optimized engineering and clean factory production ensure the highest quality, minimal waste, and a product that installs efficiently. Building a Shipping Container Homes rather than a home renovation or addition not only requires fewer resources, time, and costs but also reduces the amount of waste produced dramatically. The typical construction site generates an average of 1.7kg of waste per square meter of the building, requiring a large skip or waste on-site, while on-site assembly of a Shipping Container Homes typically only fills one large garbage can. In addition to waste reduction, we are also pioneering a robust materials recycling program at our production facility.

LONG-TERM SUSTAINABILITY

WALKABLE COMMUNITIES

  • ADUs are a gentle way to add housing density in cities, without the need to develop and build on new lots
  • ADUs reduce development pressure on outlying areas, which helps protect land that serves ecological functions
  • ADUs reduce the number of people who need cars by creating walkable communities – this helps lower greenhouse gas emissions and improves air quality
  • Urban Infill leads to the cleanup and reuse of abandoned sites, often removing hazardous materials from neglected areas

TELECOMMUNITING

Decreases Greenhouse Gas Emissions:

  • Transportation is the largest source of greenhouse gas emissions in the Australia ., accounting for over 28% of total emissions in 2018 – vehicles are responsible for about 82% of all transportation emissions
  • The average Australian car emits 4.6 metric tons of CO2 per year. Assuming that the average employee drives 30 kms to and from work each day, telecommuting would reduce transportation-related emissions by about 69% each year.

Diminishes Carbon Footprints

  • Less use of fossil fuels – 650 million barrels of oil would be saved if half of the Australia  workforce worked remotely
  • Reduced power consumption from large offices – if 50% of the total workforce telecommuted, nearly $500 billion would be saved in electricity, real estate, and employee turnover
  • Reduces office waste such as paper and plastic goods
