We built a two storey, 20 strong container structure for Engine Shed in Bristol, which is housed within Brunel’s original station dating back to 1841. Those sharing the Engine Shed workspace are encouraged to collaborate with and inspire each other. Boxworks is a custom-designed workspace based within the surroundings of Engine Shed. Our client wanted Boxworks to be built using shipping containers, and was to house creative, digital and high-tech companies.
we utilised twenty 40ft new (once shipped) containers across two levels, with ten containers on each level. The original cargo doors were retained for security when locked at night, and were used as exterior partitions during the day. Aluminium framed sliding personnel doors were then installed, as was a flat bar balcony bar in front of the top level sliding doors. Aluminium framed sliding personnel doors were also installed at the rear of the structure.
Forty double ended twistlocks were supplied in order to connect and stack the containers together, and we arranged for twenty crane lorry deliveries to deliver and off-load the containers. Our client handled the electrical installation and lining, as well as the container graphics and decals. The end product was a high impact container structure in the heart of Bristol; a creative home for creative people.
