Meets all building & safety codes
Our team is best in class and offers in-house architectural design and full-service engineering. We manage projects from start to finish, navigating the Municipal Approval process at a 100% success rate... even in municipalities that have never approved this type of construction before. Finally, our fabrication team uses the many tricks of the trade we've learned over the years and proprietary information to source, prep, and modify these containers into exceptional buildings.
