Container Conversions

We can convert containers into (just about) anything

The use of ISO shipping containers is becoming increasingly diverse, and many people have realised that reusing shipping containers in construction projects is actually incredibly affordable. Shipping containers are made from cor-ten steel, and have an operating life of approximately 25 years. Due to the strong structure, and long life of the shipping containers, the options for conversions and modifications are huge.

Willbox are UK pioneers recognised for converting shipping containers into almost any type of structure. From the standard units such as offices, canteens, and welfare units, Willbox also create bespoke container conversions. Our previous work includes anti-vandal cabins, cafs, pump rooms, home gyms, sleeper cabins, biomass boilers, and many more!

Shipping container houses have become somewhat of a global trend. From creating a modern mansion for a fraction of the typical construction costs, to providing shelter for the homeless; container homes are becoming more popular across the UK. Willbox can assist with all aspects of container living, from supply of the containers, conversions and modifications, to installation. We can even help you find a container home architect and project manager who can design your house, and support you through the whole build process.

The uses for containers has grown exponentially over the last couple of decades. Predominantly they were seen as cheap storage solutions or adhoc space. Our client base is so diverse that containers are used for a variety of applications including:

  • Modular office buildings
  • Site welfare
  • Classrooms
  • Test facilities
  • Plant equipment
  • Defence projects
  • Fitness & pop-up gyms
  • Retail
  • Power generation
  • Renewables
  • Recycling
