Our containers in action near Liverpool

With close proximity to Liverpool, we’ve worked with several customers on their shipping container conversions in the city. 

Warrington Council contacted us to support them with a high-end toilet unit to be installed at Lymm Dam. We took a new 10ft shipping container and transformed it into a fully equipped DDA compliant toilet unit for multi-gender use, complete with all plumbing, electrics, and external finishing. Our teams also fitted a panic alarm, disabled access, and personnel door to ensure the unit was fully user-friendly. 

We also worked with SHEIN at Creamfields Music Festival to create a brand and advertising space. The company used our converted shipping containers as vibrant adverts for the SHEIN brand, creating a memorable brand experience for festival goers.
