Actually, NEAPO has another business on ship building industry. That’s why to make a 485,017 pounds eco construction to be movable is not a big problem for them. This 3-story building was built and assembled in a shipyard warehouse. It utilized FIXCEL® steel sandwich structure, a triple seamed, steel material that was developed especially for use in modular construction. The use of this material provide a lightweight construction, but has very good strength and durability, including from earthquake. It is also 60% lower on CO2 emmission, compared with other industries. The structure itself can be recycled and reused completely. It will only need nearly 40% lower of energy consumption, compared to conventional steel materials. Those all proof that this construction is very eco friendly.
