Breakdown of the Project
We were approached by an engineering company that required a container converted into a control room for their new site. The customer had seen various other projects that we had fabricated over the previous years, and provided us a specification to follow. The dimensions were critical for the container length as they only had a maximum size of 30ft, the dimensions for the modifications were also critical as the they needed to match entry points onsite.
We cut-down a 40ft new ‘one trip’ shipping container to the required 30ft length and rewelded the ISO end on. The container had 4no. apertures cut along the 30ft length of the right-hand panel (these positions were critical as they were matching the onsite cable entry). We dressed the apertures with 50mm box section and bolted a piece of sheet that could be removed as a glance plate. Along the left-hand length of the container we supplied and installed a 10-point steel external opening personnel door that was towards the rear of the container. There was also an aperture cut from the container flooring and fitted with a removable glance plate for when the customer feed cables in.
Internally we lined the container using 9mm melamine boards over 50mm rockwool insulation. We also added additional trim around the top and bottom, around the apertures and personnel door as finishing touches. The container was resprayed to the customers specified colour – RAL5010.
