Buildings converted from shipping containers have been growing in popularity in the last decade or so, but their uses go beyond the simple tiny home, swimming pool or storage unit. There are many container-based buildings out there today that look cool but also provide an essential structure for purposes ranging from community centers to military training outposts.

Here’s a look at some interesting uses of shipping container buildings.

Sports Stadiums

You can use the versatility and mobility of shipping containers to host sporting events and festivals. Shipping containers are conducive to sports stadiums thanks to their modular construction, so much so that you could pair dozens or even hundreds of them together within a short span of time. This is a desirable option when compared with the time and cost of traditional construction.

Construction Site Workspaces

Imagine crafting a two-story observation workspace to overlook your construction, rock quarry, development or other area. In such a workspace, you can include a breakroom for drivers transporting loads, an office for real estate agents to go over pertinent home information with potential buyers, as well as the HVAC, plumbing and electricity needed to do it year round.

The top-level 20-foot container could comprise the office space with private bathroom, with the ability to watch over the construction site from an eagle-eye vantage point. The bottom level could combine two 20-foot containers into one big space that includes a bathroom, kitchenette, break room area, and locker room. The best part about shipping containers is that they can be stacked into position in just a few hours. Thanks to the durability and portability of these units, the structure can last for many years without fail.

Training Facilities

Military training villages can be constructed out of shipping containers in a quick and effective manner. The site can be used to train soldiers in the military, complete with walls, doors and windows that simulate the homes or businesses that troops would be seeing on deployment. Such a village is easy to reconfigure and modify to cater to multiple scenarios. These structures are also much more durable than a standard stick-built structure and can stand up to the rigors of military training on the daily.

Community Spaces

Community members and officials who want to breathe new life into deteriorating neighborhoods can create a community center that includes resources for everyone who lives in the vicinity, including a police substation.

For instance, three 40-foot shipping containers can be paired to provide private office space, kitchen area and bathroom, with the ability to be relocated easily if need be with quick disassembly. Such a structure could become a source of pride within the community, bringing neighbors together with local leaders to discuss important issues surrounding the area. It can also include a space for community events to further solidify the neighborhood.
