Why Use Containers?

Containers are not only sustainable, but they also save time and money.

Millions of acres of forest are depleted every year, much of it harvested for building. In contrast, containers can substantially offset a development's carbon footprint and reduce the use of natural resources. Containers are strong, corrosion resistant, and can reduce construction time by up to 40%. Hard and soft costs are lower as well, particularly in expensive urban and mid-rise markets.

Traditional building methods are depleting our planet's resources. It's time to start building smarter and better, with SG RESIDENTIAL.

Containers are...

  • Builders save time and money and deliver a structure Faster to an end-user.

  • Containers are already "squared" which eliminates significant time in the construction process.




  • Containers are repurposed into incredible "Green" living environments.

  • There are an estimated 30 million unused shipping containers in the world.
