Education establishments like schools and colleges are increasingly turning to portable, mobile solutions like metal storage containers to provide additional storage or accommodation.

Basic shipping containers can easily be modified for accommodation with some modifications, and even taking into account the expense of these bespoke modifications they still represent excellent value for money, at a fraction of the cost of a traditional build with the added benefits of being portable.

Modular by design, shipping container units are available in a range of sizes to offer a flexible solution to fit your needs. An additional pod can be added or removed quickly and without hassle.

Shipping containers can provide an excellent solution for a range of temporary storage solutions in the education sector, such as:

  • Offering changing room space
  • Providing temporary classroom space
  • Providing classroom equipment storage
  • Becoming a document archive
  • Providing storage for maintenance equipment
  • Providing storage for sports equipment

Here at Cleveland Containers we can provide a standard shipping container for sale or for hire as a modular education unit, alternatively, if you have specific requirements, we can undertake bespoke modification to existing units to fit your needs. Such alterations might include adding electrics, personnel door(s), windows, ventilation, shelving and partition walls.
