Case Study of the Month

04 March, 2020

This extra wide new build container has been fabricated for a vape shop. Standard shipping containers are only 8ft wide, so if our clients request a container wider than 8ft, we need to build them from scratch. We made this container with a flat panel construction, instead of using corrugations typical of shipping containers – this gives it a sleeker appearance and a less industrial aesthetic. The UPVC sliding patio doors help make the shop customer friendly, while the roller shutter ensures a secure lock-up when the shop is closed. Our client will be fitting the container out and adding signage, which will complete a practical yet attractive pop-up shop.
