Container Case Study

After discussing their options with them, it was decided that a 24 bay modular structure would suit their needs. This consisted of 20 x 20ft new modular office units and 4 x 20ft new modular sanitary units.

Internally the walls were lined with white cladded steel, laid over 60mm PU insulation, the ceilings were also white cladded steel but laid over 100mm mineral wool insulation. The flooring was a cement bound chipboard floor, laid over 60mm mineral wool insulation. Externally, the modular structure was painted in RAL5010 (Gentian Blue), and so as to blend in with the countryside location, this was clad with 150mm x 22mm planed sawn tanalised larch timber. We supplied and installed an extensive lighting and electrical package, these were integrated into the wall and ceiling panels. The package consisted of 60 x LED tube lights with PIR activation, 4 x electric showers including fittings and shower curtains, a 300L hot water boiler for the male showers, an 80L hot water boiler for the female showers, 44 x sockets, 7 x extraction fans, 24 x distribution boards, 6 x 5 litre hot water boilers over sinks (3 of these were in the toilets and 3 were in the laboratory and kitchen.
