Containers are popping up in more and more places where traditionally-constructed buildings used to be seen. Scarcely an episode of the TV shows "Grand Designs" and "George Clarke's Amazing Spaces" goes by without some clever container conversion that morphs into a dreamy designer eco- home or work space. Architects, engineers, builders and other construction professionals are seeing the potential of container conversions to deliver affordable building projects that are portable, quick to erect and sustainable.
The brief for this project was to create an electrical control cabin and two picking stations for a waste recycling plant. It was fairly complex as there were various conveyor belts which needed to enter and exit the picking stations at specific points.
