Verbus Containers Go Modern With New UK Housing Designs

A more modern design for shipping container housing.

For all these years people keep saying, "but why do the shipping containers always need to look like shipping containers?
As we keep saying, "the don't". 

Now Verbus has finally added the simple exterior decor to prove that ISBU shipping container construction can be very attractive
even when a single unit housing project is constructed.

Verbus are the people behind the Travelodge projects and many other UK container housing projects proving the "box"
can be strong, flexible and also beautiful.

You may notice that the Verbus ISO shipping containers are 12', which is 4' wider than the standard ISO container.

Although it is nice to have the extra width it has many serious problems and challenges during transport; on the ships from it's
China factory and then on the streets to the final project. The planning time and delays take the feasibility and beauty from
the easy-to-use standard 8' wide ISBU.

The Verbus people are genius at what they do but for most projects and contractors globally that extra size is a nightmare.
Most architects and contractors with any experience prefer to use of two 8' ISBU will form a 16' rather than fight the transit
problems of the 12'. No matter what, Verbus continues to be a leader and a winner in ISBU technology.
