ContainaTech: Container conversion to your specific business needs
ContainaTech, a newcomer in the container conversion industry, is headed by Paul Roos old boys Jacques Olivier and Ruan Bouwer – and they are taking the container industry by storm. On a mission to be a one-stop-shop streamlining the conversion process and a vision to turn their thriving young company into an eco-friendly powerhouse, these entrepreneurs are on a journey to solidify their slogan – Healing The World, One Container At A Time – and they encourage you to join them on their adventure.
As Victor Hugo said, “There is only one thing stronger than all the armies of the world and that is an idea whose time has come.” The ContainaTech team is here to tell you that the time for innovative new building methods has come and that container conversion is at the forefront of this new movement. According to Jacques, “using containers as your structural element is not only cheaper and faster, it requires less maintenance,” – benefits we can all appreciate in the current economic climate. Advantages when using containers:
Save time & money
Manufacturing takes between 2 – 10 weeks, depending on the size of the unit. ContainaTech’s services further include the procurement of the containers, drafting of the plans, submission for approval to council site preparation and transport to site – a foolproof recipe for a healthy return on your investment.
Customization & modularity
They fit a vast range of purposes – from a one-bedroom house (farm-workers’ accommodation, student accommodation, etc.) to eco-friendly container farms, the sky is the limit.
Strong & durable
Manufactured from Corten steel and designed to withstand extensive & harsh ocean trips, containers are the perfect alternative structural element to guard against extreme nature situations.
Off-site manufacturing & quality assurance
With 90% of manufacturing taking place off-site in a factory setting, the quality of the product is drastically increased while sparing you the headaches of having to deal with extensive building operations on your property and the costs attached to them.
Availability & easily transported
Thousands of containers get abandoned each day, unable to be used again for shipping – These can be easily transported via any ship, truck or rail to the desired location.
Containers consist of tons of steel, wasted and without any further use. Upcycling them not only re-purpose all that steel, it reduces the number of traditional building materials that would have been necessary.
With our world currently in crisis and the strain that our agricultural industry has been under, now is the time for South Africa to join the world stage in innovation and consider alternative methods, not only for building, but farming as well.
Our agricultural industry is the lifeblood of South Africa, yet it is the industry suffering the most. By using new innovative ideas and technology, we could breathe new life into it and heal the world, one container at a time. A new type of agriculture is emerging – Container Farms – which is aimed at combating major stresses like extreme weather, pests and limits in growing seasons.
Benefits of container farming include:
Whether you want to erect a large-scale farming operation or a residential self-sustaining vegetable garden – as long as you have space it’s game on.
There is a reduction in water use of about 90% since most container farms recycle their water, as well as the benefits mentioned above regarding the manufacturing process.
Reduction in risks
Container farms provide an easier-controlled environment for crop growing, yielding plants that are protected from pests, plant diseases, mildew, extreme weather, etc. Furthermore, if you do experience an outbreak or contamination, it will be contained to one container.
Full year growth
By being able to regulate the environment inside the container, you are able to produce year round, regardless of what season you are in.
