Water Supplier Storage, Office and Canteen Containers
Our client; the largest water-only supplier in the UK, contacted us regarding five 40ft containers they required for their site in Hertfordshire. Three of the containers were to be used for the storage of water meters, tools and general equipment, the remaining two were to be converted into an office and a canteen and were stacked on top of the storage containers. 40ft quality used (A Grade) containers were used for all five of the units, each being modified to the following specifications:
Storage Container 1
This unit had two 5' twin anti - corrosive light fittings and switches and two 13amp twin sockets installed. To maximise the storage space we designed and supplied a steel frame shelving system, and fitted to both sides and the front wall of the unit. Each bay consisted of two shelves at 900mm centres made up of 20mm ply with a depth of 450mm. A 125mm steel plate was then fitted across the front of the shelving to form a lip.
Storage Container 2 & 3
Both of these units had three 5' twin anti - corrosive light fittings and switches, an external socket and a distribution board installed.
Office & Canteen Units
We provided our client with CAD drawings of these units and advised the location of electrical components, as well as the best fit for all the internal work. We applied 50mm rock wool insulation to the walls, doors and roof with 9mm melamine wall boards. Apertures and box frames for the windows were created where we installed three standard insulated single glazed sliding windows in each of the units, each measuring 945mm x 945mm, these came with anti-vandal shutters. Apertures and box frames for the doors were created where we installed one insulated weatherproof personnel door in each unit, each measuring 910mm x 2065mm. The doors had 10 point locking systems, tie backs were also included to prevent the doors from slamming. Electrics fitted in each unit consisted of four 5ft single non-corrosive fluorescent lights, four double sockets, three 2kw wall mounted convector heaters, a distribution board and an isolator. For the canteen we also supplied and installed a 1000mm base unit, work top, stainless steel sink and an over sink water heater.
We arranged for the units to be delivered and off-loaded via 40ft crane lorries. Once on site the units were stacked, access was also required to the top level so we supplied and installed a used fixed staircase which led to the canteen. The office and canteen were linked together and access into the office was via the canteen. Eight twistlocks were supplied in order for the containers to be securely and safely stacked, we also supplied our client with railway sleepers to ensure the units were sat correctly.
