Case Study of the Month

18th Feb, 2020

Pop-up food and drink outlets are a fast growing trend in the catering industry, and we have undertaken work for small family businesses operating out of just one unit, to larger companies requiring multiple outlets in different locations. Some of our catering containers are used as a permanent structure, as with this conversion located at Drumgelloch railway station, near Glasgow. Others are used to take around to various locations for special events and festivals. As shipping containers are portable, whatever the size of the unit, it can be moved from one location to the next if used as a temporary fixture. The addition of cladding can help with planning permission if the container is being stationed as a permanent fixture at a rural location. Or it can just make you container conversion stand out from the crowd with an attractive finish.
