Office & Studio Spaces

Create an affordable, portable, and comfortable work environment that suits your specific needs. Whatever sector your business is in, we can convert any container into a comfortable, connected, purpose-built workspace.

Set up a workspace, office, or studio that fulfils all your business needs. Whether you choose a new or used shipping container, your office or studio space will include safely installed heating and lighting, WiFi connectivity, desk space, and condensation protection insulation. We can respray your container in any RAL colour and add your business’ branding, as well as install extra storage space with racking and shelving for paperwork, and equipment.

Need your office and studio space to double up as a place to meet clients and customers? You’ll be proud to welcome them into your custom-designed office and studio space. We can install a waiting area and all the comforts you’d find in a bricks-and-mortar building.

More affordable and flexible than building an extension

You don’t have to start applying for planning permission to set up a new workspace for your business. A shipping container office is the ideal solution for businesses that need versatile, flexible space that can be moved between sites or easily dismantled when they’re finished with it. This is ideal for construction sites and temporary locations, as well as more long-term purposes.

Choose your specifications

We’ve built basic office spaces that can be set up quickly as well as designed specialist studio spaces to house specific equipment. Tell us what you need your office or studio space for and we’ll turn it into reality. Our CAD team will draw up the specifications and dimensions, put it into production, and then we’ll deliver it to your site, install it, and set it up.
