Former shipping containers are the latest space solution for a new animated project at London’s iconic new Battersea Power Station development.
S Jones Containers provided two containers for the animated public space which forms part of the new pedestrian entrance in the first phase of the £9bn Battersea Power Station development.
The area, beneath Grosvenor Bridge, links Chelsea Bridge Wharf to Circus West and is the only pedestrian entrance to the site for the next three years.
Created by event interior design specialists Polar Bear Live, the 20m x 50m space includes a concierge desk/visitors’ information point, public toilets, six pop-up retail units and two event spaces, as well as storage space.
At present, the containers are being used to store marketing materials, but in the future they will house outdoor furniture used in the space around the bridge during summer months.
Simon Woodward, managing director of Polar Bear Live said: “Shipping containers are very well priced and easy to install. They were the perfect solution for our storage needs and now that we've painted them copper, they're an eye-catching addition to our scheme.
“Copper features quite heavily in our design palette and complements timber well, as there’s a lot of timber.”
Danielle Paul, sales account manager at S Jones, added: “It’s great that our containers feature as part of this spectacular redevelopment and is yet another creative use of containers that we can only wait for customers to create.”

We were recently approached by a company who provide boutique camping accommodation at some of the UK's favourite music festivals. Their requirement was for a space that could serve as a flexible transport container as well as a public facing customer reception.
Katt, Project Manager at Pitch Village commented, 'S Jones were fantastic, helping us design a bespoke unit full of features such as power sockets, lighting and anti-condensation treatment - as well as more bespoke elements such as welcoming bi-folding doors, and an integrated shelving system. We are delighted with our S Jones container and look forward to working with them in the future.'

We’ve recently completed and delivered a container which has been converted into a bar which forms part of a quirky outdoor events area at the newly renovated Beech House pub in Solihull. The bar features an oak laminate food safe worktop with bi-folding doors, an under counter washer unit, chillers and bar units with power sockets. The container bar has been painted in a vibrant green and a polyester awning has been attached to the roof to keep customers dry whilst enjoying a beverage or two!
Outside the container bar is an impressive tepee which boasts ambient lighting and wooden seating which can accommodate up to 120 guests for all sorts of celebrations. Dan, General Manager of the Beech House, pictured below with our MD Andrew Jones says he has received over 50 bookings for private parties in the last month!
Just another example of how versatile shipping containers are. We can turn customers’ creative ideas into reality. Our team is knowledge based and highly informed with technical know-how.
