1. Strength and durability :
Shipping containers are in many ways an ideal building material.They are designed to carry heavy loads and to be stacked in high columns. They are also designed to resist harsh environments.
2. Modularity :
All containers are made to standard measurements and as such they provide modular elements that can be combined into larger structures. This simplifies design grids, planning and transport.
3. Labor :
The welding and cutting of steel is considered to be specialized labor and can increase construction expenses, yet overall it is still lower than conventional construction.
