During this project the group performed research on the use of shipping containers as temporary housing shelters. Using this research, the team focused on converting shipping containers into pre-fabricated emergency relief housing. By designing a number of containers with different functions the group created a community environment in which approximately 216 people could recover from natural disasters. The experience gained from this project will help the team gain valuable experience in problem solving and teamwork.
