We Turn Shipping Containers Into Incredible New Environments


We use highly-sustainable, maritime-grade shipping containers to build incredible shopping, working, and living environments.

We work with architects, developers, builders, and commercial clients to help them build incredibly safe, strong, and green structures using code-engineered shipping containers. We work closely with our partners to source the right box for each project need, then use our unique experience and know-how to build-out each to exact specifications.

It's not as simple as it looks.

 As a matter of fact, it's really hard to turn a container into a structure that works. We know how to do it right.


Industry leaders engage SG Blocks with good reason—our expertise, proprietary best-in-class container-based testing and modeling, and container preparation and building process provide results.

Our top-tier clients know we provide safe, durable, sustainable solutions that are faster and less expensive than traditional building methods. The SG Blocks difference? Experience. We deliver an end-to-end solution on time and on budget.






SG Blocks built the first-ever Starbucks drive-through utilizing shipping containers. Located in South Salt Lake City, it is the first of several prototype stores to be opened across the country. 



SG Blocks helped build one of the Hamptons' most Eco-Friendly homes by harnessing 6 shipping containers to create a spacious, open, and highly efficient beachfront environment.

Wooing clients to your retail location has become harder. SG Blocks helped Mini Cooper create a mobile showroom that could be taken to where clients gather—a new fun and effective way to engage clients with your brand.

SG Blocks is the first container supplier to receive an ESR from the ICC

Patent application submitted for SG Blocks Universal Box

Code compliant universal standardized modules and modifications as well as completely interchangeable infill panels. Standardized modules reduce the time to obtain approvals, provide a consistent design and fabrication approach and reduce design and construction times and errors.


Containers are not only sustainable, but they also save time and money.

Traditional building methods are depleting our planet's resources. It's time to start building smarter and better, with SG Blocks.


We are destroying our planet's resources. Millions of acres of forest are depleted every year, much of it harvested for building. In contrast, containers can substantially offset a development's carbon footprint and reduce the use of natural resources. Containers are strong, corrosion resistant, and can reduce construction time by up to 40%. Hard and soft costs are lower as well, particularly in expensive urban and mid-rise markets.

Containers are perfect solutions across diverse residential, industrial, commercial, and retail applications.
