Last summer, S Jones Containers enabled long-standing customer Star Events Ltd to create its “Super Slow-mo Experience” for blue-chip giants, Samsung. The high-spec technology and viewing platform went on tour at music festivals across the UK, including the coveted British Summer Time at Hyde Park Festival.
At the heart of this fun, innovative project is 2, 40ft high cube S Jones Shipping Containers which housed the Samsung technology and viewing platform. Thousands of festival attendees were able to stop and capture their “Super Slow-mo Selfies” and share their moment across social media, all through this collaborative exciting project.
Star Events Ltd recognised the benefits for utilising a container for its durability, toughness and flexible interior options; however they wanted to ensure the end product did not resemble a shipping container on its exterior.
The S Jones Solution
As experts in container conversions, S Jones was able to help Star Events Ltd turn their vision into a reality. We achieved this by offering:
- Detailed 3D CAD design modelling – which enabled the customer to visualise a number of complex design elements, including different supplier products in one concise agile model. This allowed collaboration between all parties and helped aid the decision making and building process.
- Expert Knowledge – S Jones offer over 40’ years’ experience in the shipping container industry, the support and advice from their specialist team of customer service staff and design engineers provide confidence to the customer that their solution is in expert hands!
- In-house Proofing and Fabrication – S Jones provide end to end customer journey, from initial concepts through to final design and fabrication. This project was no exception, allowing the S Jones team to further push the boundaries of showcasing their design and fabrication abilities.
What Star Events Ltd Had To Say
Gavin Scott, Project Manager for Star Events Ltd commented, “In terms of service from S Jones, it has been second to none, their conversions team have been great! One of the key factors in the project’s success was the CAD design service offered by Andy and the conversions team. It is a real benefit when multiple suppliers are designing on top of each other, trying to perfect all their unique elements in what is a relatively small space. The fabrication work undertook by S Jones was all spot on – with a very accommodating attitude to late changes. I look forward to future projects!”
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.
