Converting Two Ocean Containers into a Site Office

Image générique pour les projets en construction-en


At the end of their life cycle, ocean containers are decommissioned and possibly recycled. La Cité, in collaboration with the Minto construction company, faced the challenge of combining two containers to create a site office. For the project, construction, plumbing and electricity students worked together to design an office built to code. The office is currently installed on a housing development in Kanata and is better insulated than other temporary job site facilities, making it very comfortable in winter. As well, once building is completed on that job site, the office will be ready to be moved to another location.
