Site Visit Tin Can Alley

Fun Site Visit and Networking:

Behind the Scenes at Tin Can Alley in June  

    Join the Facility Manager Association of New Mexico on Wednesday, June 28th, at 4 pm for a site visit and backstage tour of a local business incorporating the new sustainable trend towards architecture utilizing shipping containers.  Plan to gather for an insider’s look at this innovation and stay for some networking afterwards including food, shopping, and fun at Tin Can Alley.

     According to Wikipedia, shipping container architecture uses steel intermodal containers as the main structural element.  The use of containers has grown in popularity due to their strength, wide availability, and relatively low cost.

     Consider these advantages: customization, strength and durability, modular simplification, labor savings, ease of transport, wide availability, cost effectiveness, and eco- friendliness. Disadvantages include heat transference, lack of flexibility, installation/construction site considerations, and building permitting.

     Gather promptly at 4 pm at the Santa Fe Brewing Company Taproom in Tin Can Alley located at 6110 Alameda Blvd. NE, Albuquerque, NM 87113, just east of I-25 on the corner of Alameda and San Pedro to take the tour.  Cost for members is $30.00 and non-members pay $35.00. Register and pay with your credit card on the website to be included.
