Shipping Container Conversions 20ft x 16ft workshop

*Call For Delivery Costs
For this conversion project, Quarry Bank Community Centre needed a new metal work/woodwork workshop as part of their Men in Sheds community project. The centre already has a large allotment and outdoor recreation area where they host different community events such as festivals and crafts fairs, and get retired men in particular to come down and get involved in different social activities.

This unit needed to be extra wide, and so we used two 20ft second hand containers removed two of the long sides to create a 20ft x 16ft area. Our team went to site to assemble the two containers, which involved bolting the two units together, installing the rest of the ply lining, adding on the PVC Top Hat to the seam of the two containers at the top, and flash banding the edges to completely seal the unit. This was then touched up with paint to blend in.

The customer has since added their own cladding to the exterior of the container as part of their Planning Permission requirements, which blends in beautifully with the surrounding area.

Special features

  • 2 x used 20ft FG containers with one wall removed

  • Ply lined and insulated

  • Security personnel door

  • 2 x anti vandal windows with shutter

Once delivered, the container was clad by the Quarry Bank Community Group themselves. What a great start to the woodwork project!



"Fast, factual and efficient response to my initial enquiry. Supportive with the length of time it has taken for us to secure grant funding, then have to go through the planning application process and still honoured the original quote. A top class service which I would definitely use again on other projects that I am involved in and would highly recommend Containers Direct to others"

From Dave Ord, Quarry Bank Community Association - 2 x 20ft containers joined together to make a workshop.
