Boxabl's Patented Shipping and Packing Technology to Transform Construction Sector

Boxabl's concept allows customers to order totally customized commercial buildings or homes, which can be shipped the following day to construction sites. Boxabl's patented shipping and packing technology allows for mass production of regular Boxabl rooms, which reduces construction time at a fraction of the cost of traditional approaches.

Boxabl will create a dramatic societal shift in housing accessibility by creating something the world has never seen before: true mass production of buildings, in a factory, on a large scale.

Boxabl realizes these cost savings by standardizing the standard room design allowing repeatability in manufacturing. This simplification of the standard room design not only allows for efficient manufacturing, but considerable customisation. Boxabl box "blanks" will be inventoried for next day shipping to construction sites.

With the worldwide market for construction estimated to touch $10 trillion by 2020, processes like Boxabl, which utilize latest construction technology, are poised to have a huge effect on the building sector. Engineered to be easier and more cost effective to ship than other manufactured building approaches, each 750-square-foot room can be packed in on itself and towed behind a regular sized pickup truck for quick affordable shipment.

"We're committed to building all of our projects with factory produced, standardized units within the next five years," says Caleb Roope, Founder and CEO of The Pacific Companies, one of the nation's top reasonably priced housing developers and an advisor to Boxabl. "We will work with the Boxabl team to help make this a reality."

Poised to deliver a common standard to the way builders approach light commercial and residential projects, Boxabl technology will also serve as a solution to housing shortages caused by natural disasters, such as the latest devastating wildfires and hurricanes affecting Florida, Texas, and California. Standard Boxabl rooms can be pre-manufactured and stored for quick and easy deployment at a short notice by road, sea, rail, or air to aid those in need. The rooms can then be connected onsite during recovery efforts and subsequently repurposed into standard infrastructure such as schools, libraries, businesses, and more.

Boxabl is a project of the Las Vegas-based intellectual property and development company 500 Group. The company is also presently exploring potential sites for a manufacturing facility in North Las Vegas.
