Shipping Container Hospitals Can Help Tackle COVID-19

Hospital space for coronavirus patients has become a huge problem as the virus begins to reach its peak in the United States. The situation is constantly changing and medical facilities have had to adjust quickly.

Fully portable and fully customizable, shipping containers can be used for any medical use including testing, exam rooms, medical supplies storage, ICUs, medical offices and more.

Full hospitals made from shipping containers can also be created in a far less amount of time than traditional styles. These mobile, modular hospitals can help ease pressure on the nation’s health system.

Shipping Container Intensive Care Units

Containers are flexible enough to create individual hospital rooms for patients with severe cases of coronavirus. Every unit can be equipped with standard equipment that is necessary and can be set up wherever they are needed.

The structures are quick to assemble and disassemble. Since the units are weatherproof and durable, they can be used long after the COVID-19 pandemic for various applications.

We’re Here to Help

MODS is currently working with various governments and aid organizations to create medical units as needed. We have expanded our operations and built up our production team to make sure we offer extremely fast lead times for medical structures. If you would like to collaborate on a medical modular facility, contact us today.

Proudly Serving Our Veterans

Veterans Village Tiny Homes Project

Early in 2018, we had the privilege to help our veterans by delivering the first of eleven Tiny Home units to Veteran’s Village in Las Vegas Nevada. On February 14th the grand opening and ribbon cutting commenced with keynote speaker and Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn G. Goodman and other dignitaries.

Instant Housing Solution

Housing for homeless veterans is badly needed. Construction of typical homes is costly and time consuming. Funding  problems force many homeless vets to fend for themselves. Shipping containers deliver a fast, affordable and comfortable solution to stick construction and makes great ecological and economic sense. We’re pleased to help make that happen.

Comfortable, Secure Tiny Homes

The first unit is a 320 square foot model made from an unused 40′ steel shipping container. By tiny home standards, this is quite spacious. Other units in this project will consist of more compact 20′ units with room for sleeping, bath and small kitchen area.

Addressing a Nationwide Crisis

This project is part of a national plan to address the Veteran’s Housing Crisis. The project is a model for the future. According to Veterans Village founder Dr Arnold Stalk PhD,  this fast and environmentally friendly building option creates an affordable housing solution to meet the housing needs of veterans. It also provides support for veterans to transition back into civilian life. We are proud to help bring this project to life.

How You Care Help

Funding is badly needed, so project costs are being provided by your generous donations. Veteran’s Village utilizes “in-kind” donations that directly benefit veterans. This includes money as well as food and clothing. Learn more about how you can donate to the Veterans Village project.

Building Blocks of Today – Shipping Containers

Steel Survival

Stonehenge survived thousands of years due to the sheer size and weight of the material.  Compared to other building materials of today, shipping containers are durable, modular, and transportable.  They are low maintenance steel structures resistant to hurricanes, fires, termites, water, and salt damage.  There are about seventeen million inter modal containers.  Here at MODS International, many are finding ways to convert these sound structures into quality buildings for a wide array of uses.  There is no shortage of shipping containers or of underutilized and/or depressed areas needing creative development.

Modest to Glamorous

Various transitional areas need a non-permanent solution find use in this new form of building.  Even vibrant areas such as Las Vegas, San Francisco, London, and Amsterdam proudly feature these container buildings.  Festivals in Rio de Janeiro and New Orleans are finding these transportable buildings both visually appealing and functional.  Not just for small business, Google with Google Barges used four stories tall of shipping containers to showcase Google Glass among other products.  Container architecture is also referred to “arkitainer” or “cargotecture”.

MODS stands for “Modular On Demand Structures”
MODS International customizes these building blocks of today to anything and shipping anywhere!

Mobile Offices Using Shipping Containers

Mobile Offices Built Using Shipping Containers

Mobile offices are essential for many industries that require remote work spaces. Whether you are looking for supplemental office space or an on-site support office. Shipping containers are the ideal structural solution.

MODS Container Offices

We often get inquiries from construction companies who are looking to replace their simple on-site trailers with something sturdier. Other mobile office designs/temporary structures we have worked on include guard booths, military site offices and mobile classrooms. Container offices are not only long lasting and simple to relocate, but easily configurable.

Plug and Play Office Space

You can include similar features as you would have with a permanent office space. This includes windows, overhead lighting, secure doors, multiple electrical outlets, security features, restrooms and more! One of the best parts of our mobile shipping container office is that when the office arrives onsite, the setup is simple. All that needs to be done is to connect the power (and the water hookups if applicable) and your office space is all set for use.

Customized to Your Needs

Multiple containers can be used to create a larger office space. Your design can include individual offices as well as open meeting room space as pictured above.

MODS International can create any mobile building configuration you need. Applications include everything from construction offices to temporary classrooms. We work with you to come up with a design that meets your needs.
