Former shipping containers are the latest space solution for a new animated project at London’s iconic new Battersea Power Station development.
S Jones Containers provided two containers for the animated public space which forms part of the new pedestrian entrance in the first phase of the £9bn Battersea Power Station development.
The area, beneath Grosvenor Bridge, links Chelsea Bridge Wharf to Circus West and is the only pedestrian entrance to the site for the next three years.
Created by event interior design specialists Polar Bear Live, the 20m x 50m space includes a concierge desk/visitors’ information point, public toilets, six pop-up retail units and two event spaces, as well as storage space.
At present, the containers are being used to store marketing materials, but in the future they will house outdoor furniture used in the space around the bridge during summer months.
Simon Woodward, managing director of Polar Bear Live said: “Shipping containers are very well priced and easy to install. They were the perfect solution for our storage needs and now that we've painted them copper, they're an eye-catching addition to our scheme.
“Copper features quite heavily in our design palette and complements timber well, as there’s a lot of timber.”
Danielle Paul, sales account manager at S Jones, added: “It’s great that our containers feature as part of this spectacular redevelopment and is yet another creative use of containers that we can only wait for customers to create.”

We've recently delivered a converted 10ft container to leading worldwide technology and service partner to the aquaculture industry, AKVA group.
AKVA group’s FNC8 (Flying Net Cleaner) is an intelligent remote Net Cleaning Rig, designed for the global aquaculture industry, to help reduce cage marine fouling. The FNC8 can be operated via a handheld mobile console or from a control room. Built with standard ROV components that are easy to clean and disinfect, it also includes several built-in auto features and advanced camera systems and sensors for complete monitoring during the entire cleaning process. With the use of high quality Net Cleaning equipment, such as the FNC8, optimum fish growth conditions can be ensured.
Brian Knowles, Technical Manager at AKVA Group commented “A modified container from S Jones Containers was selected to produce a complete control room for the FNC8 which includes a fully integrated control system and pilot chair. By opting for a modified container from S Jones it has allowed the control room to be both mobile and flexible. Using a 10ft container, ensures our customers can easily operate the FNC8 on a wide range of boats, providing the opportunity to easily move the equipment around a variety of locations.“
“Working with S Jones Containers was a pleasure from start to end, with a highly professional specifying and quotation service that provided excellent recommendations and great flexibility.
