Opening up a world of possibilities

The landscape is changing dramatically.

A shift has taken place from the more traditional, time intensive solutions to fulfilling housing shortages and commercial business start-ups to a more innovative and cost effective approach. Dryspace, already being recognised at the forefront of the temporary event structure industry, returns with a new innovation that is taking the building industry by storm.

Every project is treated as unique and with it’s very own identity. Clients, working directly alongside our team of designers are able to create their very own product using materials that are commonly available to all. We support and take care of every step during the process.

Our experienced and carefully selected supply chain offer high quality in all aspects of fabrication, ranging from steel fabrication, engineering and powder coating, right through to space design and management. This translates to an shortened timeline from concept to completion and a smooth experience throughout.

The possibilities are endless and our client’s objectives remain at the forefront during the process.

Existing projects have ranged from a high end mobile bar system created from a single 20ft container right up to a fully spec’d 50 unit retail park which houses some of the world’s most distinctive brands.

Let’s face it everyone is and should be under pressure to recycle, and  with over 24 million containers sat being unused in docks and storage using containers as a primary construction method is helping to save our planet. It takes over 8000 kwh of energy to create a shipping container, the approximate energy cost to value-recycle a container is 400 kwh. If you also add to this a slew of additional green innovations from solar panels and other reusable energy sources there are a huge amount of benefits to using shipping containers.

Modular Construction

Virtually all shipping containers are the same width and height and are made in various lengths, the most common being 40 and 20 foot and, as such they provide modular elements that can be combined into an infinite range of larger structures. This simplifies not only design and planning but also transport, as they are already designed to interlock for ease of mobility during transportation.


When compared to traditional construction methods which require skilled on site labour, container architecture can provide significant construction cost reductions.


Once plans have been agreed and passed the speed at which modules can be completed and shipped compared to standard construction methods is around 40% faster.

Strength and Durability

Shipping containers by virtue of their primary intended use are in many ways an ideal building material. Firstly they are designed to carry large heavy loads and to be stacked in high columns. They are also designed to resist extremely harsh environments, are corrosion resistant and meet or exceed structural safety codes.

Shipping and Transport

Pre-fabricated modules and units are designed for shipping and can easily transported by ship, truck or rail because they already conform to standard shipping sizes. In many cases exterior cladding for the final finish is shipped inside the container for final erection and completion on site.


Around the world there are reported to be approximately 24 million unused shipping containers which quite simply means there is abundance of available base inventory.

Onsite Construction

Shipping containers are designed to be supported by their four corners which makes foundation construction very simple and quick.
