Inspiration On How To Use Old Shipping Containers
Old shipping containers are increasingly finding a new lease of life on dry land. There are a multitude of ways you can use these durable structures to create a truly unique venue for your business.
Bury Mercury recently reported that Felixstowe in Suffolk is one place that’s set to get not one but two new developments that are made from shipping containers.
The first will be an artisan street featuring pop-up shops and restaurants. Named Beach Street, it will run along the town’s South Seafront, providing visitors and locals alike with an eclectic mix of places to shop, dine and grab a coffee.
But containers don’t have to be static - they can be moved around too. The news provider highlighted several other projects where containers have been adapted - including into a gym - and that are transported to different events, allowing people from all over the country to make use of the facilities they provide.
One business owner even explained why she choose a shipping container for her coffee shop at Sudbury train station. Delenia Stokes said that there were many reasons for her choice: “It’s strong, very sturdy, has a great industrial look and of course it’s incredibly safe when it’s locked up, as well as being recyclable.”
Teesside Live recently reported that six shipping containers are set to be used to create a ‘box park’ in Hartlepool. The containers are part of a retail development and will provide a number of smaller units at the Tees Bay Retail Park that allow small businesses to set up in this area that’s dominated by big names.
