Is container cheaper than cement building?

Meanwhile, a building expert has told that using a container as an office could be cheaper but noted that it depends on the specifications wanted by the owner.

His words:

"Container offices can be cheaper than traditional construction, especially for temporary or short-term uses. However, costs can vary depending on factors like location, materials, and customization. Whether to choose a container office over renting a shop or office depends on your specific needs and circumstances."
