More often than not space is a premium, and to efficiently maximise the available space on site, it is necessary to use combination units.
With over 25 years hiring to the construction industry, Willbox are well aware of the needs and requirements of personnel on site. That is why we have designed and built a range of stackable combination units that offer the full site set-up on a smaller scale.
Our combination units include the following:
Office / Store (50/50)
The office / Store (frequently referred to as a 50/50 or fifty/fifty) is the most common combination unit in the portable accommodation industry.
Most small builders are happy to utilise a 20’ x 8’ space to separate a small office with light and window, whilst retaining 10’ x 8’ of storage. As the unit is converted from a shipping container, the double container doors are still present and provide a high security store for tools.
Office / Canteen (40/60)
The office / canteen is a perfect solution for a small site. It features a 64 sq ft office, suitable for a site manager, as well as a 12’ x 8’ canteen suitable for 4-6 personnel.
This combination unit is converted from an ISO Shipping container, so can be stacked on top of a shipping container to provide secure storage on site. The office / canteen features lighting and heating throughout, and includes a sink, cabinet, and hot water heater in the canteen room.
Canteen / Dry Room (70/30)
This is a very popular unit with the oil and gas industry, as it provides a 14’ x 8’ Canteen room, as well as a small drying room, which is imperative on marine and rig sites.
This combination unit is frequently used with a 20’ office on top, to allow site managers adequate work and meeting space. As always the canteen includes a sink, worktop, and hot water heater; and can comfortably seat 8 people.
All of our combination units are converted from ISO shipping containers, and they can therefore be transported via all intermodal methods such as road, rail, and ship. The units are made from corrugated cor-ten steel, and include steel shutters over the windows, making them anti-vandal. All of our site accommodation units include a 240v 32amp Inlet supply, and can be connected to mains power supply, or used in conjunction with a generator.
Stacking of the units is carried out using our hiab crane vehicles operated by our highly trained drivers, and each unit is linked using a marine twistlock which fits in to the four ISO corners. The 13 tread staircase is then installed parallel to the units. For photos of our container and cabin stacks, please click the following link.
