With the landscape of working life-changing, people are finding more and more innovative ways to incorporate shipping containers into their work. Containers provide a low-cost, convenient, and unique solution to many of the problems we see today in the workforce. Here are just a few of our favorite shipping container offices/workspaces.
The increasing popularity of working from home also brings the problem of separating that work/life balance. A backyard office is a convenient and practical answer to stepping away from the potential noise and distractions of home while being able to focus on that next Zoom meeting. Large glass windows can provide great natural light and make your container office feel more open.
Artists who need that personal space to create and really let the creative juices flow may find a shipping container studio to be a great solution for them. Container studios can be outfitted with water and electricity for washout spaces, extra lighting, or other uses. Utilizing your wall space is key to getting the most out of your container office. Paint, photography, sculpture, whatever your medium may be, you will find an answer with a container space.
The rise in temporary testing sites calls for a portable solution. As testing ramps up, more spaces are needed for medical professionals to work from, and sometimes in a hurry. Container testing sites provide a safe and secure place option, not to mention can be built quicker than most other pop-up facilities.
Shipping Container Workshops
For those who work with their hands a bit more than some who may be, for instance, typing an article, a container workshop is an excellent answer. Rather than renting warehouse space, or getting an outdated and dark shed in the backyard, outfitting containers to serve as a craftsman’s workshop will make it a bit more personal and comfortable.
Pro tip: letting our team build out shelving for the walls is key to getting the most out of your space.
Okay, so maybe it’s not an office, but we see more food and beverage vendors turning to containers to build out their concepts. Coffee shops especially fall into this category, where an open container space can have your customers in and out the door ready to start their day.
