Breakdown of the Conversion Project

We regularly get enquires for office containers like this one, so for this conversion, we were able to give the client some additional guidance on the build such as recommendations on materials and positioning of personnel doors and the side windows.

This particular unit was based on a 20ft new shipping container and fitted with a steel personnel access door, window w/ steel shutters, lined with white faced wallboards over 50mm Rockwool insulation, electrics to include lighting, double sockets & wall heater, painted externally and fitted with vinyl flooring.

These office containers are bespoke, so the specification can be altered to suit particular client requirements. We sell office containers like this one throughout the UK. Lead time is typically 3 – 4 weeks.
