Infill Story Video: Shipping Container Homes

Posted on July 31st, 2017

Visit Westgate Manor - a new multi-family infill development in Edmonton. This innovative apartment block was designed with sustainability in mind.

 Steel shipping containers are used as the frame of this building which moves away from traditional construction methods in order to use recycled materials. Each container is built in a controlled factory and transported to Edmonton for installation. These pre-built shipping containers have limited construction impacts on neighbours and allow for shorter construction periods.

 Westgate Manor is built to resemble the neighbouring developments while integrating sustainable materials, modern features and family-focused design.
