The Conversion Brief

A 10ft High Cube Catering Container Modification. For this conversion project, the fabrication involved adding a roller shutter to enable the full catering counter to be displayed when the unit was in operation, adding a personnel door to replace standard container/cargo doors. The unit was then lined and insulated internally. Finally, the catering equipment along with electrics was installed to complete the unit.

Breakdown of the Project

Along with [link for the other project] we were also asked to produce a second catering container for the design associates, for this project the requirement was for a 10ft catering container. However, the client requested a high cube which we formed by cutting down a larger container, the main request was that the cut-down container had ISO corner casts. We received CAD drawings for the team at the design associates and started the modifications to the cut down 10ft high cube container.

The drawings specified an aperture cut from the right hand 10ft corrugated panel and an internally mounted steel galvanised roller shutter installed. Behind the shutter would be the central serving point for the catering container, we also fabricated a steel fold up hatch that acted as a rain cover when the container was in use that was assisted by gas struts.

A single personnel door was installed in the rear 8ft for access for employees. We internally timber framed the container and inserted 50mm rockwool insulation and as the customer request applied 9mm grey melamine lining. The final internal fit out was completed by the team at the design agency as they had a specific design to follow on site.
