Shipping Containers For Schools

It has getting more and more popular for people to buy shipping containers for educational establishmentsThey are in many ways ideal building material; they are made to carry big and heavy loads and to be stacked on top of one another, and they are extremely strong. It is also extremely easy to put your own design on them, this is why they are so ideal to use as living spaces. We also provide many shipping containers which are suitable for school storage. The robust steel construction of containers, their weatherproof structure and the ability to easily make the containers secure make them ideal for a variety of uses within the education sector.  Examples of past storage use for containers include:

  • Secure storage of gym and sports equipment
  • Secure storage of overflow equipment such as desks and chairs used for examinations
  • Archiving records in a secure, weatherproof environment
  • Secure storage of grounds man or caretakers equipment

School Containers Example | Art Gallery

Our client approached us via their architect with a brief to provide a plush art gallery for a London school. The art gallery was to maximise space and light and be constructed from four 20ft high cube ex shipping containers. High quality materials and finish and provable U-Values were to be key on this project. Our client was a primary school in London who were looking for a bespoke art gallery constructed out of shipping containers. The school employed the services of an architect and Lion Containers worked very closely with the architect to achieve the design brief. Read more…

Delivering Your Container

We have a small team of trusted hauliers working for us here in the UK. Deliveries normally take place between 7am-8pm, Monday to Friday, however we can work outside of these times if so wished. We also provide site visits to those more tricky delivery areas, all members of our team have passed their CSCS card test. This means that they are able to visit sites in order to reduce accidents and drive up on-site efficiency. Should you require your container for shipping purposes, we can provide you with a CSC Verification Certificate, our professionals will test and certify your new or used 40ft container to ensure it is structurally sound and safe to ship your cargo by vessel.
