Modified Container Office Space

Storstac custom fabricates mobile container office space out of 10′, 20′ and 40′ modified shipping containers. Our mobile office containers are some of the best made container offices in the industry and feature everything you would find in a conventional office space. Our modified container offices are fully insulated and feature a 100amp breaker panel, lights, heaters, air conditioning, wall plugs, phone jacks, two windows, and one man door. Once you step inside one of our modified container offices you will think that you just walked into a traditional brick and mortar building.

The advantages of a Storstac modified container office over a traditional trailer office provided by the other guys are easy to see. Our modified container offices are built within an all steel shipping container or sea can. The advantage of building an office inside of a modified shipping container is that they provide you with a sturdy, all steel structure that will outlast a trailer office multiple times over. Traditionally, trailer offices are made of all wood construction. The all wood construction can cause the trailer to smell and it causes the trailer to be extremely flimsy which significantly shortens the shelf life of the office. The Storstac modified container office is also placed at ground level. The man door is only 6″ off of the ground, which means there are no stairs or steps required to get in and out of the office. This makes winter maintenance very easy and straight forward. Trailer offices always require stairs, and they are usually made of wood. This can cause unnecessary tripping hazards and makes winter maintenance more difficult.

Buy one of our modified container offices that are pre-fabricated, or have one built to your specifications.

Storstac Container Kiosk at The CNE

Storstac is proud to have 3 of our modified container kiosk’s featured in this years (and 2014 & 2013) Canadian National Exhibition in Toronto. The Canadian National Exhibition or CNE, is Canada’s largest annual fair. With over 1 million visitors each year, the CNE is home to hundreds of food, drink and gaming vendors that mostly work out of event tents and non permanent structures. A container kiosk is the perfect replacement for these event tents because they are easily to deploy, can handle harsh weather like high winds and rain better then a tent, and are easy to secure during off hours. A container kiosk can be as simple or extravagant as your imagination (and budget) can come up with. From a bare bones container kiosk (like the 1-20′ 1-10′ blue container kiosks below) to the more extravagant “Glow Bar” 20′ container kiosk that features a 20′ fold down wall (also Below), your imagination is your limit when it comes down to design, look and functionality of your retail kiosk. At Storstac we have the experience, expertise, and man power to get the job done, meeting and exceeding the customers expectations. We’ve been modifying containers for 40+ years and have pioneered countless applications utilizing modified shipping containers or sea cans. Want a container kiosk, container showroom, container kitchen or container house…come by our offices and see what Storstac can build for you.

Shipping Container Modification – Custom Made Portable Buildings

(Toronto, Ontario) Here at Storstac, we have been modifying shipping containers for over 40 years. We haven’t just been modifying shipping containers for over 40 years, we’ve been pioneering industry firsts that have gone on to change the way we live, work and interact with one another. Through the 1980’s and 90’s the company’s President (Vincent) utilized shipping container modification’s to house the electrical equipment for thousands of cell towers right across Canada. These towers, which are still in use today, now provide Bell, Rogers and Tellus with cell phone coverage that stretches from coast to coast. When a standard ISO shipping container couldn’t be utilized for a site, custom built portable buildings were built constructed to meet the customers needs. Although these portable buildings may sometimes resemble shipping containers (corner castings, corrugated panels ect), they are made from the ground up to meet the customers specifications.  The two images below demonstrate the wide range of applications custom built portable buildings can be utilized for. The first image is a portable building used to house a vast array of electronics for an on site power station. Custom built from the ground up, this unit was built to meet the customers demanding electronic’s specifications. The second image depicts and completely different use for our custom built portable buildings. This green custom built kiosk was the just delivered to a customers restaurant in downtown Toronto which he intends on using as a raw bar that will be serving various kinds of raw seafood. Again, completely custom built from the ground up, this unit was built to capture the look and feel of a typical iso shipping container. Yet at the same time has some striking design elements (like the slanted roof line) added into the design while also being sized to fit within the existing patio area (something a standard container would not have been able to achieve). These are just two examples of how a custom built portable building might be more suitable then a standard iso shipping container for your next project. Feel free to email, call or drop by anytime to discuss how we can put our modification experience to work for you.
