Do you need a modified container for your company?  Maybe you need housing for some equipment or have a remote location that requires an office or station.  Industrial modifications might be just the answer for you.  We recently added a page to our website about them. There is a slideshow of different projects.

We can help you with adding a container side door - man-door, roll-up or barn-door style, depending on your needs, windows, HVAC, insulation, cut-outs for your equipment to penetrate the side or floor of the container, flooring, interior walls and partitions, and electric work. 

We have shops in various locations throughout the continental United States to do these modifications where you need them.  In order to give you pricing, we would need to know the size of the container you are thinking about, drawings of your plans with a list of the modifications and the city where the container we will deliver the container when it is completed.  We need the location to know which shop we will be using as well as trucking rates.

More than 60 companies donated time and materials to convert a 40' container into a container home for a family in need.  The container home was completed in just 3 days and then was moved to the Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA) to be on display.  The container should be moved to County Cork and move-in ready before Christmas.

The design exceeds regulations and can be scaled up or down depending on the builder's preference.  The sample home is state-of-the-art, but can be scaled down to more value options. The project was coordinated by Carol Tallon and and Derek Trenaman of Ceardean Architects.

From Lisbon to Brisbane, Brooklyn to Berlin, Venice to Santa Barbara, containers are popping up everywhere for the arts.  Today we look at a wide range of different container projects that convert containers into museums, artist space, theater space and much more.  We even have two - yes 2! - traveling container museums! 

Check out these links to read more about them! 

First up is the Village Underground Lisboa.  It is under construction but will provide workspace for artists as well as other office space and a cafeteria.  Artists and start-ups can rent tables by the month, day or hour that include workspace, wi-fi and cleaning services.

Next up is the Anywhere Theatre Festival is Brisbane, Australia.  It is an annual festival of various shows that are in non-traditional venues.  Shipping containers are up there with a swimming pool, book store and parking ramp for venues.

Containers are featured in various mobile museums as well!  There is the Flash Forward Festival in Boston, the Nomadic Museum has traveled across the globe with different exhibits, and the Musée Mobile which has traveled in France and Africa.  Containers have also provided additional exhibit space in Santa Barbara.

There is the PLATOON Kunsthalle in Berlin that provides space for events and workshops.

The drive-through Museum of Mystery in Seale, Alabama is both a museum and a gallery made from cargo containers.

But to full immerse yourself in the arts - the container guitar.  The CargoGuitar lets you play the guitar from inside it. 

Keep those creative ideas coming and share the creative uses for containers that you have seen!
