Modified shipping containers, residential container conversions (YMCA London)

20ft container with retro fit steel personnel door into original container doors

We recently came across the BBC London News’ article on the YMCA shipping container conversion project in London.  This innovative project, sees 20ft shipping containers being converted into residential accommodation which provides support to London’s affordable housing sector.


We, at Bell Container, have been carrying out such container conversions for a number of years and have recently expanding into the residential conversions markets and are able to modify shipping containers for hotel, hostel and standard residential uses.

We are also able to convert shipping containers into shops, offices, bars, art galleries and creative popup spaces through our business division Pop-Up Containers.  Do get in touch with us if you’re looking for any bespoke container modifications, complete a quick quote or email us
