Helping the Environment, One Prefab Build at a Time

With the steady decline of our planets’ health, it is imperative to always be consciously reducing, reusing and recycling. As environmental responsibilities are being promoted worldwide, Giant is proud to implement sustainable and eco-friendly initiatives into the core of our business.

Steel sea cans have a life span from 25-30 years, but are normally retired after 10. By reclaiming and modifying these steel boxes into beautifully and creatively designed structures, we are saving them from their destined future of being thrown into landfill.

Some estimates suggest that there are around 24 million empty, retired shipping containers on our planet. The containers are truly eco-green structures, made from 85% recycled steel and fully recyclable if demolished.Steel sea cans have a life span from 25-30 years, but are normally retired after 10. By reclaiming and modifying these steel boxes into beautifully and creatively designed structures, we are saving them from their destined future of being thrown into landfill. A large amount of cargo containers are discarded in ports across the globe because of one way shipments. Reusing a single 40′ container up-cycles about 3500kg of steel and saves about 8000 kWh that would otherwise be needed to melt it down. Repurposing it only uses about 400 kWh. Using containers also prevents the use of bricks and cement. The cement industry is one of the biggest producers of CO2 and bricks essentially make the natural materials they are made of, inert.

At Giant we take pride in giving back to our environment, and the future of our society.
