Creative Uses: Temperature Controlled Mobile Workshop
February 27th, 2016
Shipping containers aren’t only for the storage and transportation of goods! With a little imagination, a shipping container can be the building block for any number of things– a house, a restaurant, a shop, or even an electrical room.
At Container Technology, Inc., one of our specialties is custom container modifications. Give us a raw shipping container and an idea and we will make it happen! Our custom container modification packages run the gamut from insulation, electrical wiring and lighting, windows, man doors,custom flooring. Take a look at our modifications page to learn more!
One of our most recent projects at CTI is a temperature-controlled portable workshop. Why buy a flimsy composite work shed or spend large amounts of money on rent on an industrial space when you can have a strong, secure, and portable workspace that is custom designed to meet all your needs?
CTI created this portable workshop from a standard 10ft shipping container. We modified it from top to bottom and created a fully finished work space that is temperature controlled and wired for electricity. The interior of the shipping container was framed, insulated, and finished with 5/16” paneling. CTI installed a man door opposite the shipping container’s original set of double cargo doors, put a steel overlay over the original floor, gave the exterior a new coat of paint, and added a shelving system and a custom workbench. CTI also installed a full electric package—including lighting, electrical outlets, and a window AC unit.
Shipping container modifications take the best qualities of the shipping container— durability, portability, and strength— and uses them for new applications. This shipping container conversion can now be placed anywhere the client needs it and be ready for use as a workshop in minutes. When the job ends or the client needs to move, it can be easily repositioned. The mobile shipping container workshop also closes up tight in seconds and the few access points to the container workshop’s contents are easily secured.
