Special Container Social Housing for UN Projects

Karmod continues to undertake significant projects worldwide with its expertise in the ready-made construction industry since 1986. One of these projects is the social housing project that we carried out in Comoros under the United Nations Human Settlements Program. Comoros or the Union of the Comoros, officially, is located in the western Indian Ocean, southeast of Madagascar in West Africa. The housing project, using the latest generation container building system, was carried out on the island of Anjouan in the country.

42 m2 Container House, the most preferred model in social housing projects

The 42 m² container house designed by Karmod with its expertise for the UN human settlements program is among the most preferred models in social housing. The container social housing has a 2 + 1 floor plan and is designed to provide the healthiest environment for the average family to live in. With its long life, high insulation performance, and interior ergonomics, the best housing comfort is offered to those living in the housing.

The adventure of the Comoros social housing project

The housing project planned by the UN Human Settlements Program for Comoros was carried out in 2016. The design of the housing, which was ordered directly by the relevant unit of the UN, was carried out by Karmod experts. Two separate 3x7 container units were used to ensure the best ergonomics of the 2 + 1 housing plan. These units were positioned side by side with the combined system by Karmod experts to prepare the houses. The pre-production was carried out with the latest generation container model in modern facilities. From the walls to the roof, from the door to the window, all equipment, including toilet and tiles, was packaged and prepared for shipment after the production was completed in a short time. The houses packaged with a completely modular system without sources were loaded onto a shipping container and set out by sea shipment.

On the day of shipment, the houses were installed by Karmod professionals who were ready in Comoros, and they were delivered ready for use within a short period of seven days. The houses, where climate control was easily achieved with energy savings with sandwich panel walls and roof panels, were additionally equipped with an additional roof system. Metal tiles were used for the roof covering. Upon completion of the installation, the social housing was allocated to families in need.
