The Conversion Brief

Our in-house design and fabrication team were set a challenge to design and build a bespoke shipping container coffee shop. Converted from a new 10ft shipping container, internal and external modifications were installed including a dual fuel system of gas and electricity. A bespoke built dual axle trailer was also created to allow the coffee shop to be towed throughout the UK for upcoming events. 

Breakdown of the Project

A local business approached us to explore the idea of expanding their options when hosting events, and to increase their brand visibility when at trade shows. The challenge that was presented to our in-house design and fabrication team was to design and build a bespoke coffee shop container conversion that was both able to be used static and mobile.  

The completed container conversion could easily be utilised for other purposes such as a shipping container bar or a gin bar. The internal equipment can easily be swapped out for other equipment making the unit multi-functional.
