As well as minimalised build cost and need for extensive foundations, the Container City™ system dramatically reduces construction time.


The fit out of all the units is done off site at the Container City warehouse and only craned in once the site and the units are ready.

Depending on the size and scale of the project, the ‘craning in’ process takes anywhere from 1 to 15 days - far less than traditional building methods, greatly reducing disruption to the client and surrounding area.

The final ‘fit out’ follows on site, and in a matter of weeks the building is ready for use.

This time-lapse sequence shows the replacement of a disused shed with the impressive Riverside Building in London Docklands. The basic structure involved the craning in of 73 prefabricated containers and was completed in just 15 days.
