32×10 Green Office

This particular office unit was completed for a North-West-based container hire company. Although this unit is our standard 32 x 10 office, the customer requested the container to retain its ‘corrugated look’ instead of using the flat-panel style we usually go with. The container has full electrics installed, including lighting, socket outlets and heating. In addition to this, the office was fully lined and insulate with melamine boards and 50mm Rockwool insulation. Other features included aluminium sliding windows with steel shutters and a steel personnel door with a 10-point locking mechanism. To finish, the unit was painted green – which really made it stand out. The added fixture of jacklegs also allow this unit to be raised off the ground.

32ft × 10ft Stacked Cabins

These 2 large 32x10ft cabins were built for a British transport company. They requested a large space to act as a welfare facility for drivers and staff in the peak district. Due to the customer’s specific requirements, one unit was not large enough so we suggested 2 units, however floor space was an issue on-site for them. The beauty of containers and cabins is that they can be stacked on top of each other and we could easily convert the containers to include a staircase to access the top unit – which is exactly what we did.

The top unit consisted of 3 rooms: a meeting room, an office and a large store room, whereas the bottom unit was converted to include a canteen, a locker room and a W/C. Both units had full electrics including heating, lighting and socket outlets installed. In addition to these features, both units were fitted with anti-vandal aluminium sliding windows that come with steel security shutters and steel personnel doors that have 10 point locking mechanisms. We also added effluent tanks to hold the waste from the canteen sink and the W/C. As suggested, we supplied them with a staircase and platform to access the top unit. We always offer professional installation on-site so we erected the setup at their chosen location.

20ft Cladded Store

Storage container for Sliver cross baby in Skipton, our client wanted a cladded container to be used to store stock in there Skipton depot. As the unit was cladded externally in high graded larch cladding, we used a used 20ft container to help keep the cost down (as the container condition wouldn’t be seen) to allow them to have the budget for the high-grade timber. Internally the container was plywood lined, insulated in rockwool, and fitted with electrics. We even cladded the container doors leaving the locking bar handles accessible as well as the security lockbox. This was a great way to keep a used shipping container in use, as a lot of used containers have plenty of life left in them but are not as attractive as a new one, however cladding it made the unit very nice on the eye once again.

  • Used 20’ standard container
  • Lock box
  • 9mm ply lined with 50mm rockwool insulation
  • Electrics to include – external isolator, consumer unit, 2x LED strip lights, 1x double socket & heater
  • Cladded externally in timber shiplap Siberian Larch
  • Delivery & offload to Skipton
