Case Study of the Month

18th Jan, 2023

30ft ModiBox® with cladding and sloping roof

One of our leading products is the ModiBox® portable office, suitable as place to work from home, in your own garden, or as additional on-site space for business and commerce. This example includes a few bespoke features beyond our standard office unit package. Wood cladding is always an appealing option to our clients as it gives an attractive appearance which "naked" shipping containers lack. The sloping roof with guttering chosen by our client for their office further enhances the aesthetic - who would guess this wood cabin style office started out as a shipping container!
