Shipping containers make an excellent structural starting point for conversion into an extensive range of applications. They are solidly built and will yield many years usage, as well as being cheap and quick to install compared to traditional building structure. We have our own on site workshops at Containers Direct, where we carry out all our conversion work, and a highly skilled team of container artisans.


These are a big part of our conversion work, with our clients ranging from a small yacht club to a large railway engineering company. Office conversions can be any size between 8ft and 45ft. We always begin by drawing up a detailed plan (see example below), in conjunction with our clients' requirements, using computer aided design. Once this has been approved, we can start work on the container.

Containers converted to offices will almost always be ply (or melamine) lined and insulated, have at least one personnel door and anti vandal window fitted. They will have an electrical supply installed and a vinyl floor. Internally they may be partitioned, and when completed, the entire container will be repainted.
