With a bit of thought, creativity and imagination, why not use shipping containers for a whole new experience. They can be converted into dressing rooms, for the artists to get stage ready. Let’s start off by taking a 20ft new (once shipped) container, and installing custom windows and personnel doors. We can then line and insulate the internal container with 50mm spray foam insulation and line with 15mm Silent Acoustic Boards. This type of lining will ensure sound proofing, so that loud sound outside won’t interfere with Azalea Banks doing her mascara! We can then install high spec LED lighting and air conditioning units to help cool down those nerves, and for the final finish we would paint the external with a Signal White RAL9003. How simple is that? Shipping containers, lining and insulation, electrics, a few windows, doors and paintwork leaves you with a plush dressing room for performing artists.
Ensuring we have convenient access to the site, to make sure logistics run smoothly, is important and we make it easy. It’s very likely the container would be placed on un-even grass, so we do recommend concrete slabs or railway sleepers to position the container on, At the end of the day, we all want easy, quick access to our containers and with an uneven ground this can cause problems or simply, the container can sink into the grass. Our contracted hauliers may sometimes be required to drive on grass which we don’t normally allow, only because we don’t want a 40 tonne vehicle stuck in the mud. So placing a track way which is a 12.7mm panel, easy enough to be moved and installed by 1 or 2 people is an ideal solution to avoid site problems. This will ensure a safe path for the vehicle to drive, position and off load on!
Overhanging cables, narrow gates? No problem, just send a few photos of the area of the site which concerns you and we will hand it over to our dedicated transport team to conclude whether or not we can deliver. We can even come out to site to have a look ourselves. Contact us today on 0333 600 6260 for further information.
