Our Container Conversions

We fabricate from category A marine containers to provide customised office buildings, school buildings, workshops, toilets, showers, medical centres, marketing suits, changing rooms, kitchens, accommodation, garden sheds, garages, stables, canteens and retail units to name but a few.

The exterior of the building conversion is prepared and sprayed in the clients choice of colours, we can also fit securely shuttered windows when required. Doors are provided with insurance rated locking arrangements utilising either the I.S.O. shipping doors with an attractive timber bulkhead fitted or single steel doors which are positioned as required.

Interiors are fully lined, insulated, wired and equipped to client's requirements to provide a comfortable working environment.

All units can be quickly stacked and locked into place by our own delivery vehicle they are either stacked on top of each other or onto storage containers. Suitable staircases are also available.

Our prices are comparable to similar size standard jack-leg units but with much higher life expectancy and much lower maintenance costs, which together with the greatly reduced risk of contents theft add up to a package well worth investigating. Available in any size from 8' - 40'.

We offer a unique consultation service where we can establish your individual requirements and build you a container conversion which meets all your needs, ensuring that all features have been thoroughly considered and constructed with your budget in mind.
