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.

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.
