We received an enquiry from a West Midlands based property development client, as a result of them seeing the Boxworks build that we carried out in Bristol. Our client have years of experience in the residential, industrial, retail and commercial sectors; they required something similar to Boxworks for a planned development on Wapping Wharf at Bristol Harbour.
We worked with our client to create a two storey development; the ground floor containers were required for local retail vendors and the top floor two restaurants. For this ambitious build, twenty-one 20ft new (once shipped) high cube containers were utilised, as was a 10ft new (once shipped) high cube container. We created open place spaces, which not only created more space for the retailers but assisted with strengthening the stacked units.
The modifications included removing the side panels and top rails in eighteen of the containers, removing twelve cargo doors, installing toughened aluminium double glazed sliding doors and aluminium fixed glazed windows. Various Kirncroft personnel doors were also supplied throughout, both standard and disabled. The under-side of the container floor areas were insulated by way of spray foam insulation. We supplied and installed a frame for the first floor, this included structural steel work castings and posts, structural and decking levels over three sections and additional time at Bristol to install structural steels and decking. For access to the upper level, 2 x staircases were supplied and built to Building Regulations. We repainted the container exteriors with a one coat system to RAL 7009. In total, eleven 40ft crane lorries and 2 x 20ft crane lorries delivered and off-loaded the containers. The site is part of the new Wapping Wharf development in Bristol, alongside the busy harbour, so this build is getting lots of positive national press and attention from the local residents. We also created some on-site offices for our client and have started work on their next development in Bristol; Cargo 2.
