PORTABLE SITE OFFICE CONTAINER

Containers Direct are the market leading retailers to trade for site office conversions. Due to our in-house depot facilities, we are able to convert both used and once-used shipping containers into a portable site office container at competitive rates.

Although pre-fabricated offices are common in the marketplace, a converted shipping container is often a superior choice. Made from corrugated steel, our portable offices provide extra protection and security whilst on site, and unlike the pre-fabricated offices, these can be completely customised to suit your needs down to the number of windows, the size and type of personnel door and paint colour.

Choosing your portable site office container size

Our container offices can be made in a variety of sizes to suit your requirements. Each one includes a steel personnel door, anti-vandal windows with steel shutters, vinyl flooring, melamine lining and electrics. We offer five basic size packages, and typically carry one of each in stock at any given time in the standard layout:

10-15ft Container (SC10)

This package includes as standard:
  • 1 anti-vandal window

  • 1 steel personnel door

  • Vinyl Flooring

  • Melamine lined and insulated

  • Electrics to include: 2 x double sockets, 1 x heater, 1 x 5ft strip light, 1 x consumer unit and external hook-up


20ft-25ft Container (SC20)

This package includes as standard:
  • 2 anti-vandal windows

  • 1 steel personnel door

  • Vinyl Flooring

  • Melamine lined and insulated

  • Electrics to include: 2 x double sockets, 1 x heater, 2 x 5ft strip lights, 1 x consumer unit and external hook-up


30ft-40ft Container (SC40)

This package includes as standard:
  • 3 anti-vandal windows

  • 1 steel personnel door

  • Vinyl Flooring

  • Melamine lined and insulated

  • Electrics to include: 2 x double sockets, 1 x heater, 2 x 5ft strip lights, 1 x consumer unit and external hook-up


Additional Features

Although we have standard packages for our portable site office containers, we can also offer a variety of other modifications to your office to match your requirements.

  • French, Sliding and Bi-Folding UPVC Doors: These doors can turn a normal site office into something more commercial and aesthetic, as well as providing more light into your container.

  • Tilt and Turn Windows: Built to the same size as the traditional site office windows, but without the anti-vandal shutters, these UPVC windows provide a professional look and feel if your office isn’t going to be used on a building site. We can also offer larger, polycarbonate window panels if you’re looking for an edgier design. Take a look at our project for Leeds Fashion featuring full sides of Polycarbonate windows to create a Catwalk!



  • Cladding: A clever way to disguise your shipping container, especially if you’re looking to locate your portable site office container somewhere with strict planning permissions! Cladding has become a popular addition to container conversions as it helps to soften the appearance without compromising on the security a shipping container offers. We offer three cladding options as standard: Rustic, Clean Cut and Shiplap.



  • Sloping Roof: Designed to channel rainwater down the sides of your container, a sloping roof can help to keep rainwater away from personnel doors and drain away into a suitable place. We can also add guttering if needed for extra drainage assistance. See our project for the Camlan Garden Centre featuring a sloping roof on a cladded container.



Extra Wide Site Offices

We understand that one of the main reasons people can’t use a regular shipping container office conversion is due to the uniform width of containers. All shipping containers conform to the same 8ft width, which can often be too narrow for an office space.

Containers Direct have two solutions to this potential problem:

1. Using our in-house fabricators, we can build containers from scratch to a variety of widths, most commonly to 10ft wide. Although more expensive, these containers are made using 1.6mm corrugated panels as standard, and are completely customisable to suit your needs. For example, we once built the shell of a new build 35ft x 10ft office conversion for our client at Parkstone Bay Marina, complete with ply lining and insulation, who then completed the office interior on site, and installed large windows to complete the look.


2. Another way of extending the width of your portable site office container is to join two of them together. Our bespoke method of joining containers allows for two or more containers to be joined side by side to provide a greater width for your office conversion. This option is particularly popular as it allows for much larger spaces to be created, whilst still being portable if your site ever moves. The largest joining project completed so far was created by joining four 20ft containers side by side to create a school changing rooms, fitted with toilets, showers and two separate changing rooms!
