Case Study of the Month

09 June, 2020

These two containers are part of a set of 5 containers we converted for Yorkshire Wildlife Park, as animal enclosures and feeding houses. The Waney Edge wood cladding makes them blend in perfectly with the wildlife setting of the park and the ply lining and heating inside the containers means they are suitable for animals requiring warm conditions. We fitted an internal timber partition in the larger container, dividing it into two separate sections with separate entry points provided by the personnel doors. Viewing panels are fitted into the doors so the animals can be seen but not disturbed!

These shelves have made an enormous difference to the amount of stuff we can fit in and easily find again. Well worth the money. Excellent service throughout.."
