20ft shipping container converted into a workshop
Using a 20ft new ‘one trip’ shipping container externally painted in RAL1007, the following modifications were internally fabricated to the client’s specifications. The internal walls of the shipping container had ply board panelling fitted throughout, that made the workshop more insulated. Internal electrics were added that included two strip lights to provide lighting throughout, and two three-pin double plug sockets along one side of the container, so the employees could use power assisted tools.
Along one side of the container, a work bench with a six-inch worktop vice attached and under counter storage was added, along with 3×3 tier large secure mesh storage for power tools to be secured when not in use, which filled the rest of the first side panel. On the opposite side was three tier shelving bolted to the floor, built from a metal frame and 18mm thick boarding. We made sure that there was enough space between the work bench and shelving for the employees to work. A PVC curtain was installed to the entrance into the shipping container once the double doors had opened.
