Helping To Build The UK`s Largest Ice Attraction

The Customer

Hamilton Ice Sculptors was founded over 40 years ago and was the first ice sculpting company in the UK.  They create bespoke ice carvings for advertising, film, events, projects and occasions.

The Challenge

Hamilton Ice Sculptors wanted robust, customisable structures to be used as quirky bars to serve refreshments to the public at Manchester’s famous Christmas Market. Our expert Container Conversions team helped turned our customer’s festive dream into a reality. The Ice Village was the UK`s biggest ever ice attraction.  Launched in 2018, it included an Arctic bar, Santa`s grotto and an Ice Rink!

The S Jones Solution

Our team transformed three 20ft shipping containers into alfresco bars.

The containers were modified to bespoke specifications. Firstly, the cargo doors were removed and replaced with new serving hatches, ply line insulation was added for extra warmth, sinks, electrics and worktops were installed before the whole of the exterior was re-painted.

I have been dealing with S Jones Containers for around 4 years now and have had nothing short of the perfect customer experience every time I have purchased containers. All of the staff are fantastic and extremely helpful. A big shout out to our account manager RACHEL HAYCOX who is literally the definition of an angel… saved us in many sticky situations throughout the years. Would never dream about going elsewhere…

I have just used SJones Containers for the first time, following a recommendation by a work colleague. A professional team who were most helpful. I would highly recommend them to others.
