KEY ROYAL WOLF PROJECTS I N 2016:
Wellington Underground Market
Sixteen 10-foot containers – also known as half size containers – formed a pop up summer market along the waterfront at Wellington’s Frank Kitts Park. The containers, which appeal to the areas industrial maritime heritage, also provide a safe and secure retail outlet for stall holders.
Dangerous Goods containers
With New Zealand’s new Health and Safety laws requiring tighter controls around the storage of dangerous substances, leading New Zealand retailer The Warehouse used specially modified shipping containers to ensure thousands of bottles of perfume and nail polish were stored safely and securely.
Queens Wharf Village
A retail and food village on the Auckland waterfront was made out of eight shipping containers which showed how these steel boxes can be transformed into an efficient yet stylish space for a diverse range of customers.
Auckland City Rail Link
This temporary container building on Victoria St as part of Auckland’s City Rail Link highlights the demand for containers as a result of the on-going construction boom. Made up of six containers, the two storey structure includes two worker’s lunch rooms, an administration office, two changing rooms, and a toilet and amenities building.
Containers for charity work
Mid way through the year cancer charity Look Good Feel Better hit the road around New Zealand for four months in a specially modified 40-foot Royal Wolf container to conduct workshops and classes for people living with the visible effects of cancer. Also, following the Kaikoura earthquakes, Christchurch based transport company 4D Freight and Royal Wolf joined with other groups to help transport a container load of presents to the more than 650 kids of Kaikoura in time for Christmas.
