Rebuilding Stronger: Post-Disaster Housing Solutions with Shipping Containers
Shipping containers should be used as post-disaster housing solutions for several compelling reasons:
Shipping containers are readily available and can be quickly deployed to provide immediate shelter in post-disaster situations.
Built to withstand all transportation conditions, shipping containers offer a durable and secure living environment for displaced individuals.
Modular / Assembly Line repurposing of shipping containers significantly reduces costs compared to traditional post-disaster housing units.
Scalability and Flexibility
The modular nature of shipping containers allows for easy scalability and adaptability to accommodate varying spatial needs.
Utilizing shipping containers promotes recycling, waste reduction, and the integration of sustainable features like solar panels and rainwater collection systems.
Crisis Housing Solutions completed the first model for our post-disaster housing program. The unit was featured in the Florida Housing Coalition’s Virtual Innovative Housing Showcase and was successfully displayed at the 2022 Florida “Governor’s Hurricane Conference”.
This unit is just part of our efforts to bring shipping containers into the mainstream of meeting affordable housing challenges.
