Converted Office Containers in Kenya

April 24, 2023

Converted office containers have become a popular trend in Kenya as they offer a cost-effective and flexible solution to businesses that need additional workspace or a temporary office/s.

Almar East Africa specialises in the conversion of shipping containers into office spaces. The conversion process is done in-house by Almar’s team of specialists and this involves creating windows and doors in the container, adding insulation and ventilation, and installing electrical and plumbing systems. The interior is customised to meet the specific needs of the business, with options such as partitions, shelving, and lighting.

The Advantages of Converted Office Containers

Almar converted office containers have several advantages over traditional office spaces. They are durable and can withstand harsh weather conditions. They are also portable and can be easily transported to different locations, making them suitable for businesses that need to move frequently or for temporary set-ups. Ideal for construction, housing or mining projects that require infrastructure for staff working on the development. Converted office containers offer a practical and cost-effective solution. 

Container offices, also known as modular offices or converted shipping container offices, offer several benefits to businesses and organisations. Here are some of the key advantages of using a container office:

  1. Cost-effectiveness: Container offices are typically more affordable than traditional brick-and-mortar offices. The cost of purchasing and converting a shipping container into an office is lower than constructing a traditional building, and the maintenance costs are also lower.
  2. Customisability: Container offices can be customised to meet the specific needs of a business or organisation. The interior layout, design, and features can be tailored to create a functional and comfortable workspace.
  3. Mobility: Container offices are portable and can be easily transported to different locations. This makes them ideal for businesses that need to move frequently or for temporary office setups.
  4. Durability: Shipping containers are designed to withstand harsh weather conditions and can last for many years. Container offices are built to be sturdy and secure, providing a safe and comfortable workspace.
  5. Quick setup: Container offices can be set up quickly and with minimal disruption. The conversion process is typically faster than building a traditional office, allowing businesses to start using the space sooner.
