EBS Block is a uniquely designed modular, prefabricated, fully functional portable house created from a 20ft shipping container.

 

Dimensionally, traditional individual container homes can create awkward living/working spaces. Taking into account added insulation, you have a long narrow box with less than eight foot ceiling. To make an adequate sized space, multiple boxes need to be combined. This is not the case with EBS Block as our unique innovative design opens up to be 6 metres long X 8 metres wide X 3.5 metres high and provides a total live-able area of 54m2 which encompasses the pull out bathroom/kitchen on each side of the house.

 

EBS Block is opened via remote control using the integrated mechanical and electrical systems. It takes approximately 5 minutes to complete the process of opening or folding up your EBS Block. As the opening process is fully automated, the assembling becomes extremely simple without the need for construction, thus reducing the cost of building a house of similar size by a faction of the cost compared to traditional methods.

 

EBS Block is designed to adapt to harsh terrains and weather conditions, providing a spacious and comfortable living area. A major advantage EBS Block provides is the reduction of internal building temperature down to 80% in comparison with the outside temperature, thanks to new thermal insulating technologies used in our properties. This keeps the house maintain it’s temperature, staying cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

Portability

EBS is highly transportable as the entire unit is built inside a standard TEU 20 feet ISO HC shipping container.

 

Due to the nature of EBS Block, it is easily transported globally by sea or land which can eliminate a lot of the hassles with moving to a new location.

With EBS Block the possibilities are limitless. Homes, office, cafe, school, dormitory, studio, emergency shelter , each EBS Block unit is built to your specification and requirements.

 

The building materials and interior decor can be altered according to your requirements. We can finish it with floor to ceiling glass, timber panels, metal cladding or any combination you like.

 

The basic structure is mainly bearing steel, aluminium frames with choice of cladding material and glass windows.

 

As a home, the interior can be partitioned to create one or two bedrooms. The house is spacious with room for a dining area, separate kitchen, spacious living room, workstation/study area (second bedroom) and a fully equipped bathroom with laundry facilities.

 

We ensure all aspects of the house comply with international standards.

 

EBS Block is incredibly adaptable, it’s time to think outside the block.
