In the jungle of Costa Rica, CONTAINERWERK is building a research station for Rausch Schokoladen GmbH that has never existed before. From recycled containers, self-sufficient in supply, with the comfort of a guest house.
In mid-March, four ready-to-live building modules from Containerwerk went on an overseas trip. The crossing of the upcycling containers from the port of Hamburg to Costa Rica took a month. On April 4th, Rausch’s former freight carriers were expected in the port of Puerto Limón. From there, the containers went on to Tres Equis in the heart of Costa Rica. A completely self-sufficient guest house and research institute for Rausch Schokoladen GmbH will be created on site from the modules in just a four-day construction phase. Plug & Play is the name of the principle which, thanks to the greatest possible prefabrication in the CONTAINERWERK base, enables rapid construction movements on site. The four 40-foot containers were optimally prepared technically, structurally and aesthetically for the conditions of the jungle before the crossing. The insulation technology follows the German Energy Saving Ordinance, the “one-piece” insulation enables the award-winning CONTAINERWERK patent.
