70 Apartments, Milton Keynes 

Project Highlights 

200+ shipping containers 
70 x 2 bed apartments

Created safe homes for vulnerable families 

The Background 

Faced with a severe homelessness crisis Milton Keynes planned to add temporary homes to keep families together while the City Council worked to find a more permanent home. 
Utilising shipping containers ensures that the accommodation can be re-used elsewhere at the end of the scheme.

developed installation strategy to increase productivity  
adapted to changing project requirements  

The Outcome 

Purpose built emergency accommodation creating additional safe homes for the people most in need of housing with: 
installation commenced within weeks of contract award 
rapid installation by a 4 person installation team 
minimal disruption to the local community 
limited waste created from the installation of the units
