Transforming Shipping Containers into Executive Site Offices: A Success Story


In the world of innovative architecture and construction, Storage WISE has carved a niche for itself by taking the ordinary and turning it into the extraordinary. One of our most recent projects involved the transformation of a 12m used shipping container into a state-of-the-art executive site office, designed to meet the exacting needs of a municipality client. In this blog, we’ll take you through the journey of this remarkable conversion and how Storage WISE exceeded our client’s expectations.

The Client’s Vision

Our journey began when a municipality client approached Storage WISE with a unique request. They needed an executive site office that could be quickly deployed and meet specific requirements. The specifications were clear and comprehensive:

  • A 12m standard shipping container

  • Four aluminum windows for natural light and ventilation

  • A steel door with a robust security gate

  • Air conditioning for temperature control

  • Full electrical installation

  • Durable flooring capable of withstanding heavy foot traffic

  • Storage WISE’s Innovative approach

To bring our client’s vision to life, Storage WISE employed a meticulous and comprehensive approach to container conversion. Here’s how we achieved it:

  • Choosing the Right Container

    We selected a 12m B-Grade shipping container as the base for our project, ensuring structural integrity.

  • Rust Removal and Exterior Finish

    The container underwent a thorough rust removal process and was painted white on the outside, providing a clean and professional appearance.

  • Insulation

    We insulated the interior using 40mm ISO panels with a grooved finish in white, ensuring an energy-efficient and comfortable workspace.

  • Windows and Security

    Four PT129 aluminum windows were installed, complete with burglar bars, balancing natural light with security.

  • Steel Door with Security Gate

    The entrance featured a steel panel door with a custom-built security gate, offering both durability and protection.

  • Electrical Installation

    Our team installed an electrical distribution board, four 16A double plugs, four 4ft LED lights, a light switch, and provided an electrical certificate of compliance, ensuring a fully functional workspace.

  • Climate Control

    We added an 18000BTU Samsung Split Unit Air Conditioner with an isolator, guaranteeing a comfortable work environment year-round.

  • Durable Flooring

    For the flooring, we applied a 3mm polyurethane rubberizing, known for its durability and ease of maintenance.

Client Satisfaction

The true measure of success for any project lies in client satisfaction. In this case, our client was not just satisfied but extremely pleased with the end result. The transformed shipping container had become a functional and aesthetically pleasing executive site office that perfectly matched their needs.
