The basic modular design and robust structure of shipping containers are making them a popular choice of building materials with architects around the world. One of the most popular enquiries of this type we receive is converting a container into a catering unit or restaurant. The size of your catering unit or restaurant can vary according to location and budget, we have had experience in converting standard 20ft containers to include a kitchen and serving hatch for street food in shopping malls. Similarly, we have had input in a number of containers being converted into a larger restaurant structure in an urban environment.  As containers come in standard 20ft and 40ft sizes, they are easy to stack together and with minimal conversion can be fabricated into a much larger structure. With recycling being a main factor to consider in modern architecture, what better way to use re-usable products than build with containers that have already fulfilled their original purpose of transporting cargo around the world. We also supply construction site canteens >>
