Mackay Regional Council approached us last year to help develop facilities for their multi-sport venue Sugar Bowl Mackay, a Skate Park and Youth Plaza to be open and free to the public.

“The concept behind the mobile shipping containers was to develop a space suitable for events, clubs, groups and Council staff” explains Jim Carless, Major Projects Manager for Mackay Regional Council.

“The container needed to store kits and equipment at the facility, so workshop mentors and coaches could carry out regular sessions without transporting equipment. The location is in a road reserve, so with the possibility of a future connection road being built, we opted for the transportable solution of shipping containers.”

The brief was to provide two separate spaces. One space was to be used as a first aid/recovery room for events. The second space was to be used as a clubhouse, workshop and storage space for groups.

Our team provided comprehensive drawings and plans before getting to work on the modifications. Works included openings for doors and awnings, flooring and insulated wall panels. We also fitted out shelving, lighting and power points. The site electrician then simply connected mains power to the sub-boards provided by us.

“The whole process was very simple and effective, we would definitely recommend Premier Box for future conversions.”
