Office Development Consisting of 62 20ft High Cube Containers
Our client; a London based construction company, contacted us regarding a modern storage and office space in East London. Our client acquired a plot of land previously used by a car garage to service London Taxis, and was a very limited space.
The two architects working on the development wanted to get as many units into the triangular shaped area as possible, to maximise income for their client and create a small, self-contained community. This development consisted of 62 20ft high cube containers, and were a combination of storage, office, toilet and shower units.
The office units were all ply lined in birch 12mm with electric sockets and heaters. The light fittings were free issued by our client. Recessed anthracite profile, patio, sliding doors were fitted behind the original cargo doors with a window of the same profile fitted in the front wall opposite the cargo doors, these were lockable from the inside. We also provided cabling for our client to install their own fire protection system. Four of the units were converted into toilet and shower facilities, and were positioned at each end of the site, to provide facilities for the office staff. The stairs and walk ways were fitted by our client.
Access was very tight and only one container on a small rigid vehicle could be taken in at a time, to be off loaded. These were then moved in to position with a huge 100tpm tractor cab, to help speed up the delivery and install. Our client was very happy with the final build, and we have since visited to see how the new office residents are getting on.

Professional, pro-active, friendly and efficient!
We used Lion to supply a large number of Shipping Containers to stage a festival in Docklands. [They] came to the site and personally oversaw delivery and siting of all the containers. [they were] professional, pro-active, friendly and efficient. The site was not the easiest to access, but [they] ensured the delivery and collection were carried out with no problems. We will definitely use Lion Containers in the future and would have confidence recommending their services.
