  • Modifications such as windows, doors and accessories can often reduce the security rating of a Shipping Container Conversion, this build has been specifically designed to maximise security through electronic isolators, lock boxes, stylish window awnings, a retractable deck and double L.E.D sensor lights.  Once in position, this build will also be fitted with anti-lift devices to the corner castings to prevent the loading onto trucks or trailers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • Shipping container homes, offices and workshops can readily be stacked on top of each other like building blocks, once we have worked through the design stage we engage engineers to certify the build as safe and fit for purpose before we commence any work.  We have over 20 years experience in heavy engineering and understand the importance of getting the foundations right from the start.

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • Our Bunker build has been structurally modified to eliminate excessive stresses on all parts of the structure from the drop down deck to the square set plasterboard internal linings. Shipping Container Conversions can incorporate any conventional or non-conventional building materials into a build and regularly engages with professional engineers to ensure structural integrity and durability is maintained and often even improved on the original shipping container.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • Insulation is a very important factor to consider in the planning stage of a Shipping Container Conversion.  Depending on space requirements, budget and the intended use of the modified shipping container we can provide a comfortable, cost effective solution regardless of the season, weather or terrain!  This build incorporates polyester insulation, made out of polyester from recycled plastic bottles, it is a popular insulation choice for architects and building designers. Offering both heating and cooling properties, it is not affected by moisture and does not shrink, polyester is a fire resistant material and requires relatively high temperatures to burn.

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • We provide a full Shipping Container Conversion service, from performing simple structural modifications to complete fit outs incorporating solar energy and eco-friendly building materials.  We are your one stop Shipping Container Conversions and modifications shop!

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • An electric winch is fitted to a ceiling cavity in the roof of the container for simple lowering and raising of the drop down deck.  A single solar panel will be utilised to provide hassle free charging of the 12 volt system

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • Often when windows and doors are fitted during  Shipping Container Conversions, the cut outs are discarded.  Wherever possible we encourage using these cutouts for a number of different things such as window awnings to security sliding doors.  They enhance security, insulation, fire and cyclone ratings.  This is an option we can fit to all our builds.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • The ‘one trip’ 20 foot high cube container has 5 year shipping certification, it can be transported by truck, rail, sea or air within this 5 year period without any other certification being required, that is until we begin modifications.  When we modify shipping containers we always consider how the structural integrity will be affected, we have over 20 years experience performing structural modifications throughout multiple sectors including military, petrochemical , oil and gas industries.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • Computer Aided Drawing (C.A.D) programs enable us to perform the most precise modifications to ensure our clients get exactly what they want where they want!
