How it Works
Shipping Container-based Housing
CRATE is disrupting the construction industry with factory-manufactured, container-based structures completed in half the time of traditional multi-unit housing and school building construction.
Traditional construction methods take too long and are more negatively impactful to local communities than they need to be. From our factory in the heart of L.A., we are changing construction methods, city-wide, state-wide, and soon, nationally.
Our approach eliminates workflow inefficiencies, reduces waste, and drastically shortens the development cycle compared to conventional site-built construction and financing.
What We Do
What’s our secret? Expertise.
At CRATE, we have unrivaled experience designing, manufacturing, and installing building structures made out of recycled shipping containers. We work closely with developers, general contractors, and architects from the earliest conceptual and design stages to engineer projects that can be built at double the speed and half the cost of traditional methods.
Potters Lane is a $6.3 million (total project cost) modular building project in California's Orange County, for chronically homeless veterans designed and manufactured for American Family Housing, an organization whose mission is to provide housing and services to support homeless and low-income families and adults.
The Oak Park High School renovation was a $1 million project that transformed an aging facility into a modern quality and sustainable educational building. Seven permanent modular classroom buildings were constructed with net-zero energy usage and made from repurposed single-use shipping containers.
The Colden Avenue installation provides affordable housing to 32 members of the LA community who are currently experiencing homelessness. Made out of recycled shipping containers from the Port of Long Beach, the Colden Ave. apartments offer a sustainable, sturdy and permanent solution to the region's housing crisis.

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
This is a model that can’t be replicated. It’s an innovative approach to development because the structures were manufactured off-site while site work was being done here. Then, the units were delivered and assembled on-site to create housing — shortening the time it would normally take to build a project. The units are designed to be very strong, sustainable and energy efficient.
