Benefits to the public sector
AFFORDABLE AND VERSATILE ACCOMMODATION FOR SOCIAL HOUSING PROJECTS
Check our prices for temporary homes and permanent dwellings and see how MAC container homes have many benefits for councils and housing associations.
INVEST IN HOMES YOU CAN TRUST
We have 40 years’ experience in the container buildings business, supplying homes to many multinational clients, public sector organisations and private individuals. The NHS, every London borough, the US Navy, McDonalds Restaurants and many others rely on MAC’s buildings for temporary and permanent residential and business accommodation.
BUILD IT YOUR WAY
Container houses are built and fully fitted to your specification at the factory with partitions, kitchens, bathrooms, wiring and plumbing all ready to use. The whole package can be designed, specified, built and delivered in around 12 weeks. A fraction of the time taken for a traditional build, especially in winter.
Fire, flood and other major events can soon render people homeless. So why not have a stock of temporary housing in reserve? Multiple container homes can be built to order and stored securely in our warehouse free of charge and called off, as and when needed. We can provide a pool of shared housing units to provide economies of scale for a number of authorities and housing associations.
HOUSE MORE PEOPLE AND SAVE MONEY AT THE SAME TIME
With lower initial costs, you can keep rents low with container housing and still cover your costs. Compared with B&B costs of about £280 per person, per week, a container house could pay for itself quickly. We estimate a 35-week payback. Our homes can be put to use very quickly to help the most vulnerable in society.
BUILD NEW COMMUNITIES
Stack, link, stagger and arrange your homes to create vibrant, connected communities. Increase sheltered housing stock with adapted homes for elderly and disabled people.
GIVE DERELICT, EMPTY LAND A SENSE OF PURPOSE
The time between land acquisition and building for permanent construction can run into months and years. In the meantime, many tenants could be housed in container villages and relocated when the lease expires.
