Container Design And Architecture

Friday, 1st April 2011

Shipping container design and architecture these days is opening up a whole new avenue for boxes far removed from their usual purpose, to carry freight. Custom conversions have seen projects utilising 20ft and 40ft containers to create hotels, office blocks, exhibition stands, cafes and bars. Here at Bullmans we have been working with our clients to provide customised containers for over 35 years.

Containers for sale are increasingly purchased by companies and individuals looking to have them modified. Their strength and durability combined with the uniformity afforded by their ISO design lends perfectly to use in both small and large scale projects.

The type of equipment used very much depends on the scope of work and budget. If a client is simply looking for additional personnel access such as a high security steel door or window with shutter as an office or site accommodation then a used container could be a cost effective solution. If however a project requires multiple units, with large scale works intended for long term use, then new containers may be more suited, as build regularity and quality can be more easily controlled.

Delivery to site is also relatively easy whether by conventional container lorry or self unloading crane mounted trailer. The latter can double stack equipment, rotate boxes on chains and lift over the top of existing containers, walls or fences.
