Squab storage is a self-storage facility located in Leamington Spa, Evesham, and Rubery. Like Willbox, Squab is a family-run business and a member of the Self-Storage Association (SSA). We have previously worked with Squab creating a toilet block and a spa centre called “Swim in a tin” where Willbox converted containers into the building structure and even into a swimming pool. It was an impressive collaboration.
Squab wanted to create a cafe located in their Squab Group Leamington Spa location for one of their clients and the storage company used for that purpose.
“We wanted a provider who would be able to do some bespoke alterations for us. Willbox were flexible and accommodate our needs and allowed for last minute changes where possible.”
Emma Banks, Group Sales Self-Storage Manager
In charge of the whole operation was James Dale, the Conversions Manager. His team did the fabrication, by removing sections of the outer walls to insert two sliding doors and a door on the left side of the container. Additionally, Willbox added skylights, windows and provided the paintwork to ensure it matched Squab’s brand colours.
The project started in November 2021 and it was at the Squab site in 2022. After it was delivered on-site, Squab wanted some interesting, experimental additions to the design which Willbox were happy to assist with all their site.
While Willbox took care of the conversion side of the work, Squab did all the interior fitting of the container making the cafe look nice, modern, and welcoming. By combining our work with Squab’s internal design, we have created a place that will attract many customers with its structure and modern design.
“Willbox have continued to be supportive in remedying any changes we have needed to make. We would happily recommend them.” added Emma.
At the big opening of the cafe, Willbox was invited to the event, where we had to chance to celebrate our collaboration and have a nice coffee made by the new owners.
