  • Introduction

1.Definition of container house

Container house refers to a house with windows and doors that is mainly based on containers and has been slightly modified. It is often used as a dormitory for workers on construction sites, and some people use it as a rental house. It is durable and easy to build. The container building is based on the container as the basic module unit, and the industrial assembly line manufacturing mode is used in the factory to complete the structural production and interior decoration of each module, and can be quickly combined into various styles of complete housing buildings on the project site according to different purposes and functions. Therefore, the container building is a prefabricated building based on a modular unit structure, and it is also the most widely used type of prefabricated building at present.


2.The History of Container Homes

The history of container houses can be traced back to 1987. American architect Phillip Clark legally proposed a technical patent for transforming steel shipping containers into buildings, and the patent was passed in August 1989. Since then, container buildings have gradually appeared. Container building is a new type of building. Its development history is only 20 years, and container buildings have only entered our field of vision in the past 10 years. Container houses have the characteristics of industrialized production, convenient transportation, convenient disassembly and assembly, and reusability. It is widely used all over the world.


 Installation of container houses


  • Disadvantages of traditional construction methods


1. Long construction period: There are many reasons for the long construction period of traditional houses, such as:

(1) The environment of the construction site is complex, requiring a large number of earthwork, foundation, structure and other aspects of engineering;

(2) The traditional construction method requires a lot of manpower, and the labor intensity is high and the efficiency is low;

(3) Traditional construction methods require multiple acceptance checks and adjustments, which will also increase the construction period.


2. High construction cost

There are many reasons for the high construction cost of traditional houses, such as:

(1) Traditional construction methods require a lot of manpower, and are labor-intensive and inefficient;

(2) Traditional construction methods require a large amount of materials, and the transportation and processing of materials also take time;

(3) Traditional construction methods require multiple acceptance checks and adjustments, which will also increase construction costs.


3. Environmental issues

The environmental performance of container houses has certain advantages over traditional houses. Container houses can be combined in a variety of ways, modular design, prefabricated production, etc., to quickly and efficiently build a large number of houses to meet the housing needs in the process of urbanization. In addition, container houses also have a series of advantages such as environmental protection, energy saving, and sustainable development, and have won the favor of many people.

In contrast, the construction method of traditional houses requires a lot of wood building materials, so it is more environmentally friendly. However, traditional houses also have their advantages, such as being more secure, durable and aesthetically pleasing

  • Advantages of container houses


Short construction period, environmental protection and low cost


The environmental protection and low cost of container house construction mainly reflect the following aspects:

(1) The main structure of the container house can be recycled and reused, which saves the construction cost and can be passed through

(2) Different combination methods change the architectural scheme to meet terrain constraints and functional requirements.

The main structure of the container house can be recycled and reused, which not only reduces the construction cost, but also reduces the generation of construction waste, and achieves the purpose of environmental protection and energy saving.

(3) The container building construction operation is simple, the construction efficiency is high, the cycle is short, and material resources such as concrete are saved, and pollution such as dust and noise can be reduced.

(4) The high thermal insulation performance and thermal insulation performance of container houses improve the overall quality of the field office environment

  • The installation process of the container house


(1) Laying out: Laying out the container house refers to determining the plane shape, size, position and height of the container house according to certain rules and methods during the design and construction of the container house, so as to facilitate the work of the workers, and also to be able to Carry out construction in strict accordance with the design drawings.

(2) Ground beam installation: The installation of the ground beam of the container house refers to the connection of the prefabricated steel structure ground beam with the foundation during the foundation construction of the container house to form the support system of the container house, which can play an earthquake-proof role.

(3) Column installation: Container house column installation refers to the connection of prefabricated steel structure columns with ground beams and containers during the structural construction of container houses to form the skeleton system of container houses. This method can permanently support the entire room. Avoid the situation of collapse.

(4) Floor installation: The floor installation of the container house refers to the connection of the prefabricated steel structure floor panel with the column and the container during the structural construction of the container house to form a floor system of the container house, and the floor can be added according to one's own needs.

(5) Wall installation: The floor installation of container houses adopts a prefabricated method, which can improve construction efficiency and quality, and reduce on-site operations and noise pollution.

  • Conclusion

Generally speaking, the construction methods of container houses and traditional houses are very different. Container houses usually use prefabricated components and can be erected quickly, while traditional houses require on-site pouring of concrete and other processes. These differences make container houses have certain advantages in terms of construction speed and flexibility!


FAQs


1. Will the construction period of container houses be shorter than that of traditional houses?

Yes, because the construction process of the container house does not require concrete. It only needs to install the box on the flat ground, and then it can be turned into a neat and beautiful house by installing some decorations and equipment.


2. Is the sound insulation effect of container houses worse than traditional houses?

Yes, because the wall material of the container house is steel plate, the sound insulation effect is not as good as the brick wall of the traditional house.


3. Is the insulation performance of container houses better than traditional houses?

Yes, because the wall material of the container house is steel plate, the thermal insulation performance is better than the brick wall of the traditional house.


4. Is the construction cost of container houses lower than that of traditional houses?

Yes, because the container house does not require a lot of cement, steel and other materials, the total construction cost will be lower.


5. How flexible is the container house?

Container houses can be freely combined according to their own needs like Lego, so they also have good design flexibility and plasticity.
