Container Conversions

Containers Direct are industry leading specialists in shipping container conversions with a reputation for cutting edge innovation, delivering projects on time and providing first class customer care. We have worked on a wide variety of container conversion projects from bespoke site offices to pop-up shops, working with big brand names like Superdry to the local self-starters, like Coffi Camlan Garden Centre in Snowdonia. We have undertaken high-end engineering work for the MOD and worked with clubs and charities delivering bespoke budget workshops and offices. We have that much confidence in shipping container conversions that our main office is, of course, a building constructed from eleven joined containers and some of our workshops are built from joined up shipping containers too!

Shipping containers are renowned for their qualities of strength, security, longevity and portability, making them an ideal structure from which to construct buildings for many uses at a cost that beats that of traditional buildings. Our converted shipping containers are versatile, modern and durable, and cover a wide variety of purposes from pop-up shops to animal shelters. As well as creating bespoke conversions we also hold standard shipping container conversions in stock, such as basic offices and chemical stores.

From shipping container to high class kitchen

Many of our conversion requests come from the catering industry, including hotels, restaurants and the ever growing 'pop up' food bar business, as seen in street markets and festivals. We can produce anything from a full working kitchen, to a servery and a seated dining area. Read more about our containers for catering, or take a look at some of our favourite projects:

From shipping containers to school buildings, community centres and more......

The container conversions featured here were achieved by joining containers together, side by side, to create wider areas of space, or conjoining rooms and corridors. We do this by removing the sides of the containers, reinforcing the aperture and then butting the containers together. Usually this type of conversion is welded together on delivery to the required site, which makes for easier and less costly delivery! See this recent case study of joined containers we made for Quarry Bank Community Centre, as part of their Men in Sheds community project. Wood cladding is a popular addition to give the container an attractive finish, or to comply with planning permissions.

Office conversions.....

One of our most popular requests, with endless possibilities to tailor to our clients' needs, is the container office. We can cut to any length, create internal partitions to make separate areas for work, and even add facilities such as a toilet, washroom and kitchen.

Profound Decisions made the profound decision to purchase three containers from us. Two were simply repainted and treated with Grafotherm (28ft and 20ft), while the third (28ft)( was converted with side doors, windows, interior partition, vinyl flooring, electrics and ply lining.

"The entire process was excellent. Delivery company were particularly superb - and the product looks excellent. We will definitely be back for more soon!"

Our client, Go Below Underground Adventures, requested a 10ft container conversion, with extra thick ply lining, a personnel door with anti vandal shroud, vinyl flooring and black repaint.

"Really pleased with the container conversion" Miles

Mid Herts Divers club ordered a 24ft container conversion modified with additional side doors, ply lining and insulation, louvre vents and external repainting.

"We previously purchased a smaller container from you, and as you gave us such good service then , it was a very easy option to order a further unit from you.
The whole experience was faultless and you excelled once again."
