Great Barrier


In addition to their transportable nature and need for minimal foundations, the Great Barrier is designed to withstand the harshest of conditions; strong and durable, and is recognised as earthquake, fire and hurricane resistant - providing a solid, practical base for a safe sustainable dwelling.

Great Barrier

The self-sufficient, eco-friendly unit

Designed to operate “off-the-grid” where no power, water or waste connections are available (depending on site conditions and usage requirements).
Along with these benefits, IQ Container Homes are constructed using environmentally responsible materials and help reduce long term running costs with superior insulation, LED lighting and double glazed windows and doors.


Self-sufficient housing

This unit is constructed from a new (single trip) 20ft high cube Corten steel container with exterior, painted a color of your choice. 

It would come fully lined and insulated with smart plank anti-bacterial PVC timber look flooring, 12mm ply interior walls painted in environmentally friendly low VOC paint, LED recessed down-lights, double glazed aluminium joinery.
