A Stunning Container Restaurant for Wahaca

The Customer

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.

The Challenge

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.

Lorna and the team supplied a great service from start to finish. I made several enquiries with a few so called suppliers on line "Ebay and the likes" all turned out to be fraudsters. I turned to S Jone as they are a company with a pedigree second to none,been about years in the transport and container sector. I actually attended there training school back in the day for various courses. If on line it looks too good to be true keep away,pay a little more money for a first class service from a company that delivers. I highly recommend S Jones for all your container requirements. Top service from Lorna and the team, Thankyou.👍
