Boxman Studios has launched a new division aimed at sustainable solutions for the Built Environment. The Boxman Studios Buildings Division will focus on the adaptive use of decommissioned shipping containers as architectural elements and even complete buildings.
The company hired veteran sales director Jim Curtis to manage its foray into the Built Environment sector. "Here at Boxman Studios we are fascinated with what we can do with shipping containers. In the right hands, these big metal boxes are extremely pliable," says Curtis. "With our success in the Events and Trade Show industries since 2008, we're perfectly positioned to move into the built environment with a narrative of unique design, modularity, flexibility, and value."
The launch of the new division comes on the heels of Boxman's recent move into a 65,000 square foot facility in North Charlotte. "Our new building means that all facets of an operation are under one roof. We can easily scale as needed," says Boxman Studios' CEO David Campbell. "Launching into container architecture for the Built Environment was a logical next step for our company."
"The Buildings Division will focus on the permanent and semi-permanent use of our creations. We envision modifying containers as structural and design elements in office buildings, retail stores, apartments, multi-family residential, public markets, pop-up restaurants, transit stations, even for emergency response purposes," Curtis added. "We're excited about the next phase in our company's growth."
