Shippingcontainer. Urban Rio, Panama's First Affordable Green Container Project. UPDATE 3/16/09 – Urban Core International has gone dark.

Urban Rio, Panama's First Affordable Green Container Project

The website was shut down. If you have any concerns, feel free to contact us. Aaron Newman, founder and managing partner of Urban Core International, sent me the details of his latest project, Urban Rio. Specifically, Urban Rio is a product of Urban Core's prefab and container division called Envision Prefab. It's easy on the eyes, to say the least, and just so happens to be the first sustainable, affordable, container project in Panama. Urban Rio units will have energy-efficient appliances, HEPA filters, energy-efficient split air conditioners, smart lighting controls, a water recycling and reclamation system, low-flow faucets and toilets, tankless hot water heaters, and a living green roof.

Vraagbaak - Toon onderwerp - bouwen met ruwbouw in containers

Vochtregulerend: system D? Dak waterdicht. of zelfdragend dak, of gewoon de verbindingsnaad tussen de 2 containers waterdicht maken en een groendak erop? Stabiliteit: versteviging daar waar openingen. zelf te lassen aan de bestaande structuur. opening/ramen: plasma-lasserke huren , kader op lassen, en raam laten plaatsen bouwvergunning: gevelbekleding? Volledig bekleed met mooi hout of gelijk welke andere gevelbekleding.. (zelf zou ik kiezen voor mooi fsc hout). heb vb'en gezien waar de containers helemaal zwart geschilderd waren, en dan horizontale latten in larix, zodat het zwart nog beetje zichtbaar is en het is ECHT prachtig !! The Shipping Muse. Downtown Houston, Texas, feels like a ghost town.

The Shipping Muse

Buildings with tinted windows loom heavily and cast dark shadows on the abandoned sidewalks. Residents rarely spend time here, and when they do, you would hardly know it: 6.3 miles of tunnels connect more than 80 city buildings, pushing pedestrians underground and away from the heat, the humidity, and the possibility of a dynamic urban lifestyle. Though the city lacks visible signs of human interaction, Houston is industrially and economically one of the busiest places in America. Its refineries produce up to 1.5 million barrels of oil each day, and its port handles the most foreign cargo—and second-most total tonnage—in the United States. Each year, more than 225 million tons of cargo pass through the 25-mile-long port, including 1.6 million shipping containers—or 1.6 million potential building blocks, in the eyes of Houston developers Katie Nichols and John Walker. The future of container construction, however, is still unclear. INFINISKI.
