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
Having never ordered a shipping container before Scott couldn't be more helpful…or patient! The ordering process was easy, even for me and the communications were first class. Charlotte was very attentive and professional when it came to confirming delivery details. The container arrived as expected, when expected. The entire process from quote to delivery was flawless. Our newly painted container now proudly sits, waiting to be loaded! Thank you all.
The staff at S Jones containers are extremely efficient, friendly and helpful. We have ordered a number of containers from them and on every occasion their service has been excellent. Their containers are competitively priced and the quality of the conversion into self storage units if of high quality
Friendly and helpful service , despite us being new customers and only every likely to place one order with them.
