Construction complete largest shipping container-based hotel in North America


Ladacor said that it completed the largest shipping container-based hotel in North America.

The company utilized its Advanced Modular System building technology to construct the Days Inn hotel in Sioux Lookout, Ontario. This new technology utilizes shipping containers as a durable steel modular core.

“In the case of Days Inn – Sioux Lookout, we are proud to have not only created an environmentally sustainable and progressive solution for our client by repurposing 120 surplus shipping containers, we have developed a very high quality project to meet stringent standards of the Days Inn brand,” Ladacor President Joseph Kiss said in a statement.

Steenhof Building Services worked with Ladacor on this project.

“The use of a modular system was well suited for the Sioux Lookout location and the challenges of building in Northern Ontario.  The engineering solutions developed by our team provided a great partnership with Ladacor’s Advanced Modular System, where we were able to use innovative design approaches to complete the structure in record time. Engineering at its finest,” Steenhof Building Services Principal Jack Steenhof stated.

Currently, Ladacor is working with clients on utilizing the benefits of the Advanced Modular System in applications including commercial/retail, manufacturing, multi-family housing, workforce camps, student housing and senior residences, as well as other motels and hotels.
