Container Case Study of the Month

Made for Quarry Bank Community Centre as a workshop for metal work and woodwork, as for part of their Men In sheds project. This conversion required us to join 2 x 20ft containers together, to form a 16ft wide space to add to the community's allotment and outdoor recreation area. Find out more about the Quarry Bank conversion on our case study page.

Shipping Container News - brought to you by Sally Shipp


**UPDATED The question of shipping container dimensions is one we frequently get asked. In some ways this is a simple question to answer. Regardless of length, an ISO shipping container is always 8ft wide. But the story doesn't end there.
