The Hop Locker

Shipping Container Conversion

Th Halo Group is a custom shipping container specialist company. In 2017, we worked on a project for The Hop Locker which was voted best bar pub for Waterloo and Southwark in the Time Out Love London Awards. The Hop Locker made its name at SC Food Market and has recently moved into an eye catching converted shipping container on London's Southbank which was created by The Halo Group and specialist partners & suppliers.

The project saw the purchase of a 30ft shipping container which was then modified and fully fitted out by The Halo Group and specialist partners. As well as the fabrication and production elements, this custom shipping container project also required a high degree of operations and logistics to crane in the finished unit into one of London's busiest public spaces.

The Brief

After the container had been resprayed, 4 apertures were cut and we fitted 4 bespoke hatches. The Halo Group's brief was to fit out both the interior and exterior of the shipping container. The brief required a complete renovation including the installation of all lighting, electrical cabling, power sockets and the lining of the unit to create a blank canvas for our production team to apply the finish.

The Solution

To achieve the end result The Halo Group's award winning production team clad the back bar wall in birch ply before applying The Hop Locker logo using a vinyl overlay. Stainless steel worktops were then fitted to house the craft ale taps before tiling the front fascia. To complete the look further vinyl triangles were applied to the tiled frontage to add character to the design. The unit was sprayed in vivid turquoise, The Hop Locker's brand colour which ensured the converted shipping container really stood out against the back drop of London's Southbank.
