    I love the idea of solid portable buildings like this!

    But I find it a bit curious that they felt the need to build a structural grid to hold up and stack the containers when the containers themselves are meant to be stacked 8 to 10 high on ships. Even with seismic/wind loading and incorporating elements such as balconies, stairs and open areas, I would come up with design/engineering solutions that don’t rely on an external grid structure. This is precisely what our own portable production fabrication/office structures are about. ~ shelterkraft
