Abstract

Freight container can become a potential candidate for shelter provision to resolve the housing crisis from increasing refugee population. Currently the freight container is made in accordance with ISO standard, but for living purpose other consideration must be included, especially the requirement from local government. This paper aims to investigate the design consideration of container shelter from legislative perspective in Malaysia. Uniform Building By-Law 1984 was referred, and ventilation, structural and fire requirement of by-law were compared with ISO standard for freight container. Suggestions were made to ensure the structural and legal integrity of container shelter in Malaysia. Potential container building concept was proposed based on design suggestion.
