Creative Uses for Shipping Containers


Shipping containers aren’t just used for shipping stuff. They have lots of creative uses outside of the transportation industry. The possibilities are endless, from homes and offices to restaurants and hotels. Let’s take a look at some of the many creative uses of shipping containers.

Hotels and Homes

Cargo containers have an alternate niche as base structures for hotels, which can operate as either transportable structures or permanently-established constructions. For those who want a little more permanency yet like minimalist living, such containers can also be converted into homes, many of which are solar powered for an eco-friendly approach.

Studios and Art Galleries

Shipping containers provide the perfect space for awe-inspiring studio workshops that reflect the uniqueness of the artist. Reprocessing cargo containers into art galleries and display centers can highlight and showcase anything from artwork to photography, with attractive lighting capabilities that can be optimized for the space.

Saunas and Pools

How would you like your own personal relaxation haven? A container-modified sauna could be the perfect place to relax, get a good steam, and sweat out all those toxins. Shipping containers also make great swimming pools due to their dimensions and sturdy construction. The best part is, these pools can be free-standing so you don’t have to break ground and deal with costly excavation.

Fitness Centers and Home Gyms

 This is a cost efficient way to outfit your home with a gym or even provide fitness center services to the public. These well-equipped gymnasiums and fitness centers can be placed in schools, homes, and strip malls.

Temporary Shops

Shipping containers can be used as temporary structures for pop-up stores when specialty events are needed. They can also be transported, which means set-up and tear-down for short-lived events is minimized.

Laboratories

By their very nature, shipping containers are long and narrow, forming a natural hallway ideal for placing computer workstations. A row of desks with a computer placed at each can transform into an affordable and functional tech lab.

Workshops and Studio Spaces

Shipping containers are great for home craftsmen who want privacy and a dedicated space for storing tools and creating projects. Perfect for the DIY enthusiast or professional artist, containers as makeshift workshops and studios can provide small spaces for focused work on a budget.

Emergency Hospitals and Disaster Shelters

When health emergencies arise, it’s important for health care providers to have a mobile workstation as part of their emergency preparedness planning. They can be moved from site to site, going wherever is needed to tend to injuries arising from bombings, earthquakes, hurricanes and much more.

In the same vein, they can also be used as temporary disaster shelters when natural disasters strike, designed to aid those who have been suddenly displaced.

Innovation at its best, inspiring a unique business park with multiple uses

Container King, your storage office specialists, has completed its newest project: a brand new unique business park located in Tarrant County called Box Office Warehouse Suites. Contracted to build the complex by RDS Investments, Container King is proud of its latest creation featuring innovative office, warehouse and retail space for lease built entirely from shipping containers. This comfortable, compact, professional space in Fort Worth sits just south of Alliance Airport, west of I-35 at the Golden Triangle exit.

Constructed entirely out of 120 one-trip shipping containers, this inspiring project includes:

  • A two-story beauty salon made out of 10 containers with 24 individual suites.
  • Five retail space groupings designed with expansion for each tenant in mind, featuring all-glass storefronts.
  • 14 office groupings with warehouse/garage spaces and optional living quarters above the retail/warehouse space, including patios, innovative staircases and ADA-compliant bathrooms.
  • Innovative paint colors, including TCU purple/gray

Building a Dream… One Storage Container at a Time

box office salon and spaThis project has been a work in progress, and we are finally proud to see it come to fruition. This labor of love is a comprehensive project that started with our team at Container King assisting in the design project and planning phases. At our yard, we completed the welding, cut the openings, installed doors and windows, built stairwell frames and sealing, painted the containers, and performed a portion of the carpentry work.

On-site, we worked as the general contractor to complete the project, handling all aspects of the project. RDS Investments is a real estate company that was attracted to our capabilities and experience exemplified by our team’s history of building more than 100 container projects. These projects include:

  • Container offices: for external customers and for in-house rental fleet
  • Hunting cabins
  • Container homes where the container was extended to 10 feet vs. eight feet
  • Double wide container homes made with two containers
  • Specialized oil field containers, including a mobile pump house, a complex modular water treatment system to remove bacteria from fracking water so the water is safe to return to the environment.
