New Watford Market construction story and picture timeline
Shipping container architecture: Watford Market was constructed using 42 shipping containers.
The Watford Market was constructed from 42 converted shipping containers assembled in two levels. The company that supplied the containers is a company called Adaptainer based in Ipswich and Flaunden near Bovingdon.
The containers selected were from 10, 20 and 40' stock that Adaptainer holds and the units required extensive modification to provide, windows, roller blinds, vents and all the other paraphernalia required in the multi purpose usage they were being put to in the market... it was particularly challenging to assemble the units due to the limited space available on the site.
