There are many reasons why a workforce can become divided – personal reasons, company structural reasons, and stresses caused by the Coronavirus pandemic to name but a few. Another major factor in the productivity and happiness of a workforce, however, is the environment that they are in.
A workforce that is isolated from each other, or indeed sat on top of each other is never usually a bonded, happy workforce, meaning that it is important that you get their office environment just right. And this is where converted shipping containers come in…
Shipping Container Offices
One of the best things about converting a shipping container is that you have a huge amount of flexibility in its design. This means that you design the perfect office for your needs, workforce, and company culture. This could mean creating a network of individual offices allowing the staff to work on their own, it could mean creating a massive open-plan office, or a mixture of the two. You can separate different departments – or join together different departments – depending on what you want.
Shipping containers are essentially like huge building blocks, giving you the freedom to use them how you wish, unlike when you rent a pre-existing office space.
We have six general sized shipping containers that you can choose from – the 10ft, 20ft, and 40ft in length at 8ft 6in high, and the high cube versions at 9ft 6in.
You can also create additional rooms for the storage of documents, equipment, servers, or unused furniture, toilet blocks, showers, and staff canteens.
With the versatility that buying a storage container and converting them into one or several offices gives you, you can begin to get your workforce back together again.
Giving your employees a shiny, brand new office, you are also going to be boosting morale and reinforcing the positives about working for your company.
Creating Shipping Container Offices
The design and fabrication of your shipping container office can be done with the help of our design and fabrication teams. Our expert designers are on hand with their computer-aided design technology to help you to put your ideas on paper – and visualise them with 3D imaging.
Once that you have designed your shipping container office, our fabrication team will convert your shipping container(s) into the office of you – and your staff’s – dreams.
We are used to creating bespoke conversions and offices to precisely meet our customers’ needs, and there is no problem too big for us here at SJ Containers.
There are several things that can be done to your shipping container during its modification, including:
- Joining together side-by-side or stacking several shipping containers on top of each other
- Adding partitions inside the container
- Installing lighting and electrical packages
- Fitting windows and personnel doors
- Adding ramps for step-free access
- Fitting built-in racking for better storage options
- Professional painting or vinyl wraps for branding or aesthetic reasons
You can, of course, ask for updates throughout the fabrication process, and we will deliver your completed offices to your site when they are ready. It is easy to underestimate the importance of our environment when it comes to a workforce’s general happiness and ability to get along. With a new, branded office that supports your company values and office culture, you are giving your staff the best opportunity to both bond as a workforce, but also with your business in general.
