Containerised Beachside Café and Shop

One of our clients who supply outdoor facilities for the leisure industry wanted us to build a 40 foot containerised for use as a combined beachside café, snack shop and disabled washroom.

The specification is as follows:

  1. Use 2 new 20ft ISO containers
  2. Fabricate and fit 2 large sliding doors
  3. Replace the original container doors with new corrugated panels to match the sides
  4. Insert 2 internal partition walls to separate the toilet and office areas
  5. Line and insulate the interior using timber battens, 50mm Rockwool insulation and fireproof lining boards
  6. Paint the interior walls
  7. Repaint the exterior in the customer’s desired RAL shade (using Hempel’s marine grade paint)
  8. Supply and fit a kitchen area to include:
    • 3 base kitchen units
    • A 40mm worktop
    • Tiling
    • Spaces for kitchen appliances
  9. Fit anti-slip floor covering throughout
  10. Supply and fit certified electrics including:
    • An 8 way consumer board
    • 24 spotlights
    • 4 double fluorescent lights
    • 4 13 amp twin sockets
    • An extractor fan
    • 3 wall-mounted convection heaters
    • A water heater
    • A recessed exterior isolator/plug socket
  11. To supply and fit a disabled toilet with features such as tiled walls, a 450mm stainless steel sink and water heater

After conversion, the units were delivered to a holiday camp in North Yorkshire using Hiab equipped trucks. Our team then installed the containers on site, including joining the 2 units together.

After a little landscaping, the café was ready for use within two days and is currently serving hungry summer visitors.
