Shipping Container Conversion for Retail Sector
Our conversions division has brought multiple solutions to the retail sector and many companies are looking at the flexibility these units provide. One city centre property management company has experienced the benefits of our managed service. The client turned to Eldapoint when they wanted to develop an area into a meeting place and hub which would attract more people into the city.
We decided that a pop up venue was the best solution for the client and retailers. This would allow small and medium sized businesses into this new space, to attract footfall and new revenue.
Providing management of new and used container conversions, delivered the space solutions with cost effective results.
Design, manufacturing, fit out and delivery logistics were all key elements to bring a successful project together.
Each of our divisions had close communication with the client throughout the project, and addressed all areas that may have brought challenges.
Approach and Solutions
Converted containers have proven to be the quickest and most cost effective solution as they offer modular off-site construction with minimal disruption on site.
We were commissioned to manufacture a range of buildings as a pop up retail venue for the city centre management company.
Our client put the design proposals together, then we produced a set of working drawings to enable our manufacturing team to produce the buildings to meet the required specifications.
The clients were very happy with the results and so we are now progressing to the second phase of the project.
Converted 20’ and 40’ containers, both new and used have been transformed into retail facilities for a range of businesses.
The two-story structure has walkways, staircases and balconies for public space. The clients and Eldapoint have completed the internal shop fitting to suit their needs.
This growing trend of pop up retail food and drink facilities has filled a need to monetise under-used space within towns and city centres and attract new small businesses into the area.
Our delivery and management within this space continues to provide clients with a full cycle service.
