Containers will null the need of concrete, wood and other materials, which are becoming more and more precious and out of stock. The recycling of these steel modules will lessen the need to mine more materials. Thus, construction utilising used containers is a green choice for environmentally conscious individuals and corporations.
SMART construction can be designed to be suited to any environment. It can be camouflaged with exterior cladding to merge within an existing township or designed to survive a hostile environment whether on land or sea.
The modules can be integrated efficiently with standard construction technologies to shorten the duration of the project and to minimize site work and environmental impacts due to construction.
SMART modules are made of Corten Steel, which is 40% stronger than mild steel and is virtually anti-corrosive. The corrosion on the surface of un-painted Corten steel is very slow, losing only 1mm of surface per 100 years (1.5mm in highly corrosive environments).
These SMART structures can last for over 50 years.
SMART structures are not susceptible to the wear and tear of traditional construction and are effectively low maintenance.
Fast construction & High quality
All SMART modules are manufactured in an assembly line process under factory conditions. This ensures, not only the speed of production, but also guarantees the highest quality production at every stage.
With more than 90% of the units finished at the factory, the amount of work at site is minimized resulting in high efficiency of resource utilization and reduced environmental impact.
Cost effective & with a Faster ROI
SMART units require relatively no foundations. This allows significant savings as opposed to the traditional approach in construction.
With the entire module produced in the factory, there is a significant saving in the construction of the structure at site. SMART modules are simply placed and joined together at site enabling for a plug and play solution.
Once the design is into the manufacturing stage, the modules can be produced in an extremely short time frame, thereby allowing the project to go live in an extremely short period of time. At Smart Box, we can produce over 32,000 sqft of living space in a single shift per month.
Unlike traditional construction, SMART modules do not require any deep foundations. It can simply be placed on any level ground. For more permanent constructions, a simple light concrete pad foundation will suffice, saving both Time & Money.
SMART modules, ISO Marine Containers, are engineered to carry loads up to 30 tons and can carry a vertical stacked load of 192MT.
These modules are naturally designed to withstand more dynamic (Pitch, Heave, Roll or Wind) forces than that experienced by any traditional form of construction.
The uni-body construction of a SMART module allows for an extremely strong structure to house all your needs.
