Du Boulay Contracts, a leading main contractor in the commercial fit out and refurbishment sector of the construction industry, commissioned our conversions team to help design and modify a number of containers for Wahaca’s temporary restaurant: “The Southbank Project”.
Wahaca is a chain of restaurants based in London which boast innovative structure, quirky décor and exotic menus focusing on Mexican street food.
Wahaca wanted a “pop-up” restaurant structure that could progress quickly from concept to completion in time for the Golden Jubilee and 2012 London Olympics. As a result, Wahaca’s agents approached us to support them with the technical design of the containers and resulting modifications.
The S Jones Solution
Building on decades of experience with shipping containers, our conversion team was able to flawlessly realise the architect’s vision, which saw 8 containers fit together on 2 storeys to provide dining space for 130 people.
Once modified, the containers were positioned and connected to create a series of interlinked open spaces. Complete with panoramic views, the restaurant allows breathtaking views of the Thames from an elevated position on the Southbank.Get a Quote
