The Conversion Brief

Our client who worked for a forensic company was exploring the option of a shipping container, after speaking with the team we created a 20ft container split internally for storage and everyday use. There were external and internal modifications done for this conversion. 

Breakdown of the Project

We were approach by the council who had a requirement for an office container complete with a secure area for storage of forensics.  

We took a 20ft new ‘one trip’ shipping container & fitted a personnel access door & 1no. window w/ shutters. We fitted a secure mesh partition across the back of the unit for storage of forensics. The front 15ft of the unit was lined & insulated internally as the unit will be in everyday use carrying out forensic investigations. Electrics fitted throughout.  

A simple enough modification that has provided a secure environment for this important confidential material.
