Converted Sea Containers

For our converted sea containers, we tend to new sea containers or containers no older than 1 year. This way, we can guarantee top quality constructions. However, when construction requirements allow, we can also use second-hand sea containers. Too often, nothing is ever done with used shipping, which unfortunately creates an unnecessary burden on the available free space and on our environment. However, these are very strong, architecturally ‘clever’ modules, which in certain cases can be reused... which we often do at DS Units. That way, we can lessen the impact on our environment, while still guaranteeing top quality.

Because we convert every single sea container according to certain specifications, is extremely well suited for a huge number of purposes. Of course, converted sea containers can be used as storage units, but are team can also turn them into office buildings, festival stands, promotional spaces, permanent brick & mortar shops, pop-up stores and more. The possibilities are sheer endless, so let your creativity run wild, we’ll make sure your ideas get turned into reality!

Technical Specifications

Sizes

We build the necessary sea containers to size and, like our other units, they are modular, so that the final structure can take on all sorts of dimensions. We are, however, bound to a specific width, namely 2.43 meters per sea container unit.

Decoration & Finishing

    Because we build our see containers as separate units, they can be decorated in a multitude of different ways. Modular building has a lot of advantages, here are some specific to converted sea container:

  • Architecturally very beautiful
  • Fast production
  • Stackable
  • Start from an existing structure
  • Very strong construction
