Construction is underway for the site office and Victorian HQ of Royal Wolf, a shipping alternation and supply company. Ducon was a natural partner for this innovative project.
Ducon has a longstanding interest in the opportunities of re-using shipping containers. Our research has involved travel to both China and Thailand, and the construction of a prototype ‘shipping house’ at our head office in Clayton.
The project is scheduled for completion in December 2013. Utilising the steel fabrication skill sets of the container company, Room11 has taken the regular claustrophobic shipping container site office and transformed it into a spacious light-filled internal oasis.
Positioned next to a major road in an industrial area with the constant drone of semi-trailers, the office is internalised, with the gardens bringing light and tranquility to an otherwise loud and hectic industrial intersection.
