CONTAINERS FOR CATERING
Follow the step-by step progress of our work for The Pig, from simple 21ft shipping container to a fully operational canteen.
Step 1 - The designThe client discusses the project with our CAD (computer aided design team), who listen carefully to their needs and present a range of feasible options. As a result of these discussions, a CAD is drawn up and sent to the client for final approval before work begins.
Step 2 - Work beginsThe container is insulated with rockwool, to retain heat, and a timber frame fitted to hold melamine panels, which provide a hygienic washable surface. The floor is lined with ply and covered with lino, and all joins are sealed with plastic coving, including skirting.
Step 3 - Doors and windowsApertures are cut to fit glazed windows, protected by lockable steel shutters. The container door is replaced with a personnel door, suitable for frequent pedestrian traffic.
Step 4 - Electrical installationsA consumer unit is installed, along with double sockets, strip lights and fan heater, and an external hook up ready for connection.
And ready for delivery to The Pig near Bath!
More containers for cateringThe use of shipping containers to supply mobile or temporary licensed bars at outdoor events has become a common practice. The pictures below show a recent bar conversion, we assisted with, by providing a fully side opening 20ft container and fitting a personnel door to the end.
