Why Have a Shipping Container Conversion? The Benefits

  • Cost-effective – shipping containers are relatively inexpensive compared to traditional building materials and converting a shipping container into a livable or functional space is a cost-effective alternative to constructing a new building from scratch.
  • Portable and versatile – easily transported or stacked, they can be relocated, modified, added to, connected and tailored to suit almost any need. Scalable to changing requirements, whether you need to downsize, expand or change locations.
  • Minimum disruption and speed of building – as shipping container conversions involve very little disruption in onsite construction, they cause less disruption to neighbouring properties and environments and the building is created in a fraction of the time it would take to construct a traditional building.
  • Eco-friendly – recycling shipping containers for conversions helps to reduce waste and promotes sustainability – reducing the need for new construction materials. They can also incorporate eco-friendly features such as solar panels, rainwater harvesting systems and energy-efficient insulation.

Our Process From Enquiry To Completion

The journey to your shipping container conversion project begins by connecting with our friendly and expert team. We will respond to your initial enquiry within four hours and will discuss your project to find out exactly what you’re hoping to achieve with your container build. We view the area where you’re planning to place your container to advise on layout and determine what more is needed in terms of insulation, electrics, plumbing and all other details.

We then produce a drawing for you to approve which is accompanied by a quote for the work. When this is agreed then a lead time is discussed, and the work is scheduled. Our engineers will begin construction to create the bespoke container conversion you’re looking for.

Halletts Project Management and Design Process

The way that Hallets manages the conversion will depend on the size of the project. Larger projects will be run by councils or architects, and we will work with them on the planning drawings that they will already have in place. For smaller projects, we generally work with the client to build the plan and drawing of what they require, and we then work on the drawings to build the project.

Some of the more popular general features and modifications that are asked for in shipping container conversions are rooftop terraces, bi-fold doors, French doors, sliding doors, large windows, larch timber cladding, roller shutters and lift-up serving hatches amongst others.

Container safety

Container conversions are completely safe if they are properly designed, constructed and maintained. Some elements that need to be taken into consideration are:

  • Structural integrity – it is vital to ensure the container is structurally sound and capable of supporting any modifications and additional loads.
  • Insulation and ventilation – these must be installed to ensure the environment is healthy and safe to be in and prevent the risk of mould or indoor air pollution while regulating the temperature.
  • Electrical and plumbing systems – these must be installed by a certified professional and all permits and inspections carried out to ensure compliance with local building codes.
  • Fire safety – it may be necessary to install fire-resistant materials, smoke alarms, fire extinguishers and ensure proper escape routes.

 

Shipping container conversions in the UK must meet certain planning permissions and regulations and while some regulations may change depending on location, some container conversions may fall under permitted development rights and therefore not need planning permission, however, if it involves a significant change of use it may well require permission to be granted.

Compliance must also be met for the above safety measures and some local authorities may have specific guidelines regarding design standards, aesthetic considerations or requirements for temporary structures. As professional shipping container conversion installers, Halletts work with structural engineers through the entire process of any shipping container conversion and will be able to guide you throughout the process of gaining permissions and complying with regulations – ensuring a safe and professional installation.

FAQs

A shipping container conversion is the process of repurposing or modifying a standard shipping container into a livable, functional or commercial space for various applications. Container conversions offer a versatile and cost-effective alternative to traditional construction methods and can be used individually or combined and stacked to create larger structures or modular buildings. They can be temporary or permanent depending on the intended use and location.

The duration of a container conversion process will vary depending on several factors, including the complexity of the project, the scope of modifications, the availability of resources and the level of customisation required. Generally, the time required for a container conversion can range from any time between 4 – 12 weeks.
