We can design a workshop that’s practical, durable, and spacious, taking into account everything you need to do in the space.

This can include installing benches and seating, shelving and racking, lighting, heating, ventilation, electrics, space for equipment, and extra doors and windows, including floor to ceiling windows that fill the space with natural light and give your customers and clients a glimpse of your creative or manufacturing process.

Design your own workshop

Renting or buying a space and then setting up a workshop comes with high costs and restrictions. A shipping container workshop can be anything you want it to be for less, sometimes with no need for planning permission. We can install workbenches and desks, shelves and storage space for your raw materials and supplies, windows and doors, giving you the flexibility to move equipment throughout the space as and when you need it.

Safe, efficient features

Whatever you’re working on, we can adapt your space to include specific safety features. This can include fire doors, fire-retardant paint, hard-wearing flooring, insulation and ventilation, high voltage sockets, steel workbenches, anti-corrosive paints, and much more.

We’ve been building shipping container workspaces for decades

With 40 years in the business and thousands of hours spent converting containers every year, Universal Containers has become one of the UK’s leading container suppliers. We’re confident we can build and maintain your container, whatever you need it for and wherever you’re using it.
