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 one of the pioneering companies in the United Kingdom who have been recognised for converting a shipping container 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 horse boxes, helicopter storage, sleeper cabins, and biomass boilers, plus many more!
The new trend is shipping container houses which have become somewhat of a global fascination. From creating a modern mansion for under £100,000 to providing shelter for the homeless, container homes are taking the UK by storm. 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 hold your hand through the whole build process.
As a market leader in shipping container conversions, we are always open to new ideas!
