Portable Storage – Shipping containers can easily be modified into portable storage units for mini storage or for large equipment storage.
Retail Shops – Retail shops, such as floral shops or mini-markets, can be constructed out of multiple containers to provide a low cost, environmental friendly solution.

SG Blocks, Inc. works with ConGlobal to provide sustainable housing through the conversion of used code-engineered cargo shipping containers into “SG Blocks”. On average, this structural steel building system saves a consumer 10-20% over traditional construction methods, particularly in urban locations and for use in multistory projects. It also meaningfully reduces construction time by up to 40% over common methods, contributing to a reduction in both hard and soft costs.

The unique stacked box frame with its natural honeycomb effect lends itself to cost effective designs for superior resistance against hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, mold, termites, fire and blasts. SG Blocks can be delivered with a highly durable surface finish, or delivered ready to be clad with any type of standard or green building skin.
