IN LIGHT OF HURRICANE MATTHEW, LOCAL GLENDALE BASED COMPANY HAS BUILT THE “RELIEF BOX”, A DISASTER RELIEF HOUSING UNIT FOR IMMEDIATE DISPATCH WITH PLANS TO BUILD AN ENTIRE FLEET.
Glendale, Ariz., October 5, 2016– Local business, Modern Container Concepts, LLC (MCC) has built “The Relief Box” out of a repurposed 40’ shipping container whose sole purpose is to provide relief to those displaced after a catastrophic event has occurred at their home. MCC is planning to build a fleet of disaster relief housing units to dispatch immediately following a catastrophe like Hurricane Matthew that is currently threatening the eastern United States. The Relief Box may be leased furnished and is large enough to house a family of five to six for an indefinite amount of time.
Shipping containers are steel boxes designed to ship goods throughout the world and withstand the harshest climates on earth. Due to the fact that they are readily available, cost-effective and exceedingly strong, they are an ideal structure to use when building both temporary and permanent buildings. “I have seen firsthand what fires, floods, tornadoes and hurricanes can do to a community and the instant demand that is created for safe, secure and immediate housing.” says Dan Grifford III, a native to Phoenix and Partner of MCC. “Ever since Adrian Garneata and I started this company, our goal has been to build a fleet of housing units that can be available immediately when the need arises.”
The fleet of disaster relief housing will be built, stored and dispatched from Phoenix, Arizona and the company strives to support as many local businesses as possible. The primary function of the Relief Box is to provide safe, durable housing for those who need it most. MCC has already designed and built The Relief Box right here in the valley and will duplicate the same model over and over until an adequate supply of housing is available for use. The open space floor plan (attached) allows the Relief Box to be used as a single family home, a live/work situation for volunteers or adjusters dispatched to catastrophe areas and several other uses.
According to Grifford, The Relief Box is the best on-site temporary housing solution available in the market today. Repurposing shipping containers for construction is not only affordable, it is durable and functional as the containers are designed to be water, mold, fire and air proof. Because of their construction, Garneata adds that “ISO shipping containers are meant to withstand harsh climates and are ideal in almost any environment. They have been said to be the strongest modular structure on earth. We strive to optimize the core benefits of the container structure while providing a functional, modern design.”
