CASE STUDY

RIPPLE Shipping Container Project - A Home in 3 Days

HEADLINE DETAILS

PROJECT: RIPPLE SHIPPING CONTAINER
DATE: NOVEMBER 2014
WORK: NEW DRYSEAL ROOF ON SHIPPING CONTAINER
ARCHITECT: CEARDEAN ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN + SELFBUILD

Dryseal was chosen as the ideal flat roofing solution for a recent project in Dublin. The RIPPLE Container Home Project renovated a shipping container in time for emergency housing over the Christmas.

Ceardean architectural design + selfbuild worked with a team of volunteers over three icy cold days in November.

The team completely refurbished a corrugated shipping container unit and turned it into a fully functioning home in Dublin.

Hambleside Danelaw supplied the Dryseal materials for free, and as a fully trained and approved Dryseal contractor, PQ Fibreglassing gladly donated our own services to support the worthwhile project and waterproof the new home.

The 360 square foot container home has been donated to the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul (SVP) for emergency accommodation to house a family in time for Christmas. The unit with bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and living areas has now been relocated from IMMA (Irish Museum of Modern Art) in Dublin to SVP's Deerpark service in Cork city.

The Ripple Container Home was built between 27-30 November at IMMA. More than 60 professional and trades people, many of them members of Ireland's business networking group BNI, donated materials and their time and expertise to the project.

PQ Fibreglassing is very proud to have been a part of the team and to have had the opportunity to contribute towards such a worthwhile project, helping others in difficulty to live their lives more comfortably.
