Following the success of Container City I, in 2001 Tower Hamlets College commissioned Container City to create additional classroom space within their existing grounds.

Built across three floors complete with an external stairwell and state of the art computer cabling the scheme provided 12 extra classrooms for the college.

The entire project was installed and ready for use after the College's summer vacation period.
