What do you need – Customise your Container Modification

Your process of creating the ideal container is simply to make a list of all amenities you’ll need and plan how it is assembled. You’re left with a customised space for your exact needs. Installations and customisations will include the following:

Electric: Of course lights and electrical appliances are vital to your site office’s functioning. Staff need power for computers as well as other appliances. This is made possible by connecting the container with a power source such as a generator if municipal supply isn’t available.

Plumbing: Staff need the use of a kitchen and a bathroom. This is especially applicable if the onsite/sales office is used all day over a long period of time. By connecting the container to a plumbing system a kitchen, bathroom or even both can easily be constructed for the comfort of everyone on your team.

Doors and windows: Any room needs adequate entry points as well as some natural light to create a good atmosphere. Doors and windows can easily be installed where you need them. These can be personal access doors or even tough roller doors to keep the office safe and secure.

Shelving: Any office needs adequate storage space. The container’s tough structure provides ideal support for the installation of shelves for your storage needs and to keep the area tidy.

Ventilation: An onsite/sales office in a container can become quite hot—or very cold—due to the climate of the area. Insulated aircon ventilation helps in creating a comfortable interior temperature for all staff and visitors. Vents and whirlybirds can also be installed to create natural air flow.

Security: You can decide how much security you need installed but you don’t have to be concerned about the safety of your office’s content. Containers are made from steel which will resist any burglar and even weather challenges such as rain and wind. You only need to make sure doors and windows are secure which can easily be done through roller doors.

Quick and affordable: Instead of waiting for a new office building to be built each time you move, you can invest in a high cube container and have enough space to operate in, at a fraction of the price.
