Our Containex® containers

Comprehensive turn-key service

We take care of everything, including planning and building regulations approvals, foundations, generator hire, furniture, air-conditioning and everything else you may need in your Containex® buildings. 

All-inclusive design

Containex® can provide all facilities you need in a single open-plan design, including offices, toilets and showers, canteens, changing rooms, and meeting rooms. There’s even a range of window options, including floor-to-ceiling glazing and balconies – all complete with integral window shutters for enhanced security and privacy. 

Versatile layout

All side panels can be fully removed and re-installed when needed for total flexibility where the configuration needs to be adjusted, without compromising structural integrity. For multi-storey applications, internal staircases are also available.

Rapid assembly

CTX Containex® container modules are flat-packed and can be assembled or disassembled for easy relocation and reduced transportation costs, with up to ten modules loaded onto a single truck. This ease of transport and installation makes Containex® ideal for space-constrained sites or locations with restricted access. In addition, Containex® is available in standard and fire-rated specifications:
