The Conversion Brief

Our client was looking for a control room manufactured from a standard 20ft shipping container to be used at their Weighbridge site in South Wales, the conversion consisted of internal and external modifications. The client wanted it to not feel like a container from the inside. 

Breakdown of the Project

20ft new ‘one trip’ shipping container converted for use as a control room on a weighbridge site in South Wales.  

The container double doors were removed and panelled in with corrugation to match the rest of the shipping container exterior. We fitted a personnel access door, various windows along one side and the end. One window was slide opening to exchange paperwork with drivers.  

The container was lined with 9mm melamine lining and insulated with 50mm rockwool insulation internally and fitted with an internal partition with a standard office door to keep the control room area and reception area separate. Internal surface mounted electrics were fitted throughout to customer specification including 3no. strip lights and numerous double sockets. 

This is one of many container control rooms we have supplied over the past 16 years. Talk to us and we will be happy to provide a quotation!
