Containers and More Blog

Containers and More blog about shipping container news, projects, quirky Cargotecture buildings, and a lot more!

Industry news + schools + surely not?

A busy friend thought we'd like see this. How Shipping Containers are Made
core77 We do not underestimate interest in containers.

Having said that we do wondrous things with them and will keep bringing to your attention examples of our efforts to spread sweetness and light in this area, for example doing this to some, for a primary school:

Secure Storage for washing products!

Secure Storage for washing products!

In this case very secure storage! This 20ft container conversion was modified with location points for railings around the top of the container. The box section forming the railing posts were transported inside the container for fitting on site. Once delivered and offloaded to the customer, the railings were fitted as uprights all round the roof and connected with razor wire.

The store is being used for laundry and washing products. The nearby residents, while encouraged to wash, are prevented from free access.

gatehouse + anti-vandal offices

A customer preparing a site for multiple lorry movements needed a gatehouse/ weighbridge office. A compact cabin to fit between weigh bridges with reasonable space but not enough for cat swingers. The project is long term and security an issue, so steel construction with secure personnel door and sliding windows with steel secure shutters.

Security cabins are ubiquitous, but well designed and presented they can give a smart first impression of the business for visitors.

The advantage of a prefabricated cabin or modified container is that it is delivered to site complete and ready to use. You need to connect it to the mains and prepare basic foundation to sit it on. If in the future you need to move it, this is easily done by lorry and hiab crane, either to a new location or to sell it. If you want to refurbish it, we can collect it, do what is needed and return it to you "as new".

We have supplied to a similar customer some new cabins and at the same time removed an old one for refurbishment. The package was done to meet a budget and the appropriate time scale for the project.

cool store/ cellar

A thirsty friend with cellar space shortage was close to losing his mind. Comforted and tended through his troubles by those close to him a solution had to be found. "What a tonic!", he cried, when we delivered this little number. The perfect, portable (but with plenty of cellar space) chiller unit to keep the essentials at the right temperature. Parked neatly out of sight, but not to far for regular visits on a well worn path, the solution was found and without the need to excavate under the house.

We have not been blowing our trumpet enough, so please read, digest and spread the news.

All our containers, cabins and modular buildings can be painted to any RAL colour or colours. Please check our Colour Chart in main menu bar.

mobile workshop

We were asked to fit out a container for a sporting team (word of mouth). We have lots of experience with this sort of work and together with our customer we came up with a compact design to include workbenches, storage shelves, a manual hoist on I-beam, air conditioning system etc. All the work to be within ISO dimensions as the container will be for shipping.

Naturally, with container envy rampant in some circles, we wanted to make as smart a job as we could. We like to be discreet and confidential in the heady world of high performance sport, but the job was a good 'n'.
