The Perfect Workshop Solution

Wednesday, January 10, 2018

Do you lack the space to work on projects? Is your garage crammed with stored goods? Are you a tradesperson who needs a mobile workshop? Whatever your requirements, an open side container could be the ideal solution for you!

A shipping container is a perfect solution for a static or mobile workshop due to its many functionalities of being durable, versatile and portable. An open side container has two sets of double doors which bi-fold open at the length side and has been purposefully built to open the entire container, which makes your working area a lot more versatile. The major advantage of having a side opening container as your workshop is that oversized equipment can fit in as well as utilising the container to a maximum.

At SEA Containers we also specialise in modifying shipping containers into mobile studios to suit individual needs. You can customise your container workshop, by designing it to neatly store tools and equipment. We can also install insulation and air conditioning as a cost-efficient solution. A shipping container is easily transportable and can be installed with desired modifications such as plumbing, electricity, shelving, racks and so forth.

There are many possibilities when it comes to designing and modifying your container workshop. For more information on designs and customising a portable workshop, do not hesitate to contact our friendly team of experts.

Engineering workshop shipping container

Tuesday, April 14, 2015
Sea Containers NZ was tasked to design, build and commission an engineering workshop inside a 40’ shipping container to support a super yacht travelling the high seas. The container was designed to work off the grid, and included luxuries such as refrigeration; mammoth amounts of dry storage for sails, tools, ropes and various arrays of sailing equipment; twin-voltage to work in any country, and most importantly for the crew – a separate bar fridge, WIFI capable and air-conditioning.

One challenge was to design and engineer a gantry inside the container that was able to slide out 2.5 metres to collect the tender boat and store the tender whilst being shipped around the world. The gantry itself was engineered to lift 1 tonne of dead weight.

It is needless to say, the team in the SEA Containers workshop are proud of what was achieved. A lot of research and development went into this container, and the quality of the finish has only boosted our confidence in meeting the requirements of any client no matter the complexity of the design.   

The comments from the yachts chief engineer was particularly welcomed:

"From initial contact right through to design, construction (and change of orders!), and delivery of our container, SEA Containers NZ did an excellent job of supplying us with an amazing product, finished to an extremely high standard and most importantly on time and on budget! We are extremely happy with the service we received and the level of quality in their product, I would use them again for future projects without hesitation." - Daz Neale, Chief Engineer
