BigSteelBox expanding into Prince Rupert market

As the eyes of the LNG world turn to the North Coast, Kelowna-based BigSteelBox announced its intention to expand into the region.

As the eyes of the LNG world turn to the North Coast, Kelowna-based BigSteelBox announced its intention to expand into the region.

The company, a leading provider of steel modular buildings and accommodations in the province, currently operates through locations in Smithers and Terrace but will now be opening locations in both Prince Rupert and Kitimat.

“BigSteelBox is redefining modular construction. Traditional wood construction struggles to match the truly modular benefits of steel and container technology, said company president Devon Siebenga in making the announcement.

“The options go far beyond the comforts of home in our modules; we offer a wide variety of buildings and custom structures including offices, E-houses, lunchrooms and washroom facilities.”

To show just what was possible inside one of the units, the company unveiled a luxury-type accommodation inside a 40′ steel shipping container, complete with heater, flatscreen television queen-size bed and bedside nightstands.

Siebenga was joined at the announcement by Premier Christy Clark, who pointed to the expansion as a sign of how B.C. businesses can benefit from LNG development in the province.
