Homes for the Homeless

This construction project in Brighton has recently caught DMB's eye.

ShippingContainers.jpg

Homeless people in Brighton are to be housed in specially converted shipping containers; each container comes with bathroom, kitchen and bedroom/living area. These units have been installed in a former scrap metal yard by Brighton's Housing Trust.

The front wall is fixed into place, consisting of a grouped door and large window. Plumbing and electricity lines are connected and tested, and then the internal panels are fitted to separate the three spaces. Any necessary plastering/decorating and carpeting are done as well as installing the furniture and kitchen units.

As many as 70-100 people are homeless in the Brighton area, these containers are creating individual homes providing people with their own living quarters.
