Instead of leaving them to rust in junk yards, more builders are re-using shipping containers to build innovative structures. Photo courtesy of bejnar.net.

Shipping Container Youth Center

Still don't believe in using shipping containers to build? What if I told you the exterior of this youth center (click on the link to view photo) was built in one day? That might get your attention. Container City™ used seven old shipping containers to build this cost-effective structure in Mile End Park in East London.

Reusing shipping containers

09/23/2008 09:01 PM hnhtwins

Reusing old shipping containers is great. This clears them from salvage yards. But are they making sure that all the paperwork of what has been shipped and stored is being checked? Chemical companies have and still use them for hazardous chemical storage, then years later they may be used for a youth center?
