So, how do we describe this one?
Our client, an interior design company in the Midlands approached us with some drawings to convert a 20ft container down to a 10ft size container but keeping one of the original 20ft side walls so it gives the impression of a 20ft container inside the warehouse. The reason behind this was the area behind the ‘false wall’ has skips/ bins, which are unsightly and these could be hidden as the warehouse is high-end and being an interior design company, they wanted to keep it looking tidy.
We had to remove the back wall/ half the roof & half the side wall from the unit. We re-welded the back wall in to position at 10ft length so when you walk through the double doors, you would see the unit as an original 10ft container. Various bracing points were required during transit. We cut a ‘D shape’ aperture within the unit, which the client later fitted with glazing. The 10ft area is now used as a meeting room within the warehouse.
