Modified Sea Cans (Shipping Containers)

Modified Sea Cans (Shipping Containers)

Shipping container conversions are becoming more and more popular in the construction industry but have also seen a surge in popularity by utility companies, rail yards, harbour authorities and city transportation facilities. The demand for shipping container conversions has increased due the need of on-site offices, portable workshops, storage enclosures, housing for specialized gear or equipment and training facilities. Containers are economical, durable, secure, low maintenance. Rocky Mountain Environmental works with manufacturers to custom design containers to suit your needs.


Modified new and used shipping containers offer a number of important advantages for businesses, municipal, government, military, and other organizations looking for flexible workspace, comfortable and portable living space, secure storage capacity, and other uses.

Built-in forklift pockets and crane-ready corner castings make relocation simple – and container structures often require no foundation thanks to the support of their steel floors.
