Container Living PH reinvented products, services, and business models by using discarded shipping containers in residential and commercial construction, creating a new trend in the Philippine marketplace.

What are the advantages of using shipping containers as building materials?



All shipping containers are of the same width and most have two standard height and length measurements and as such, they provide modular elements that can be combined into larger structures. This simplifies the design, planning, and transport. As they are already designed to interlock for ease of mobility during transportation, structural constructions is completed by simply emplacing them.



The shipping container is basically the equivalent of a framed building. They are self-supporting with columns, beams, and hardwood flooring that is already in place. More likely, all that is left to be done is paint or add cladding to the exterior and do some plasma cutting for the doors and windows, thereby eliminating time and labor during the home-building process.


Sustainable and Eco-friendly

A 40ft shipping container weighs over 3,500KG. When upcycling shipping containers, thousands of kilograms of steel are saved. In addition, when building with containers, the amount of traditional building materials needed (i.e. cement) is reduced.
