A new era of modern building construction

Did you know an astonishing 96 percent of containers shipped from Asia are never returned overseas?

In our 22,000 square foot manufacturing facility, we divert these shipping containers—also known as sea-cans—from the landfill and refashion them into stunning dwellings that save trees, require less cross support, and are highly durable. 

Contrary to popular belief, these structurally sound homes are not a series of connected tubes—far from it. Copperblock has engineered a unique process to create a finished product that looks and feels identical to a building with wood frame construction, delivered in half the time it would take using traditional building methods. Any structure ranging from a 160 square foot garden suite to a multi-story apartment complex can be constructed using this method. The result is a fire and mould-resistant modern building that is eco-friendly, energy efficient, and cost effective.

Copperblock sold Edmonton’s first shipping container spec home and leads the way in the production of sea-can structures across North America.
