Case Study of the Month

24 Aug, 2021

12ft wide motorsport club house

This is an extra-wide, new build container, fitted out to provide catering facilities and storage for a car club that runs motorsport events at Curborough Sprint Course. It's a great way to sell and serve refreshments at meetings, and also has the advantage of being portable, so it can relocated if needed at a different venue. We also provided a toilet block to sit alongside the container.
