Sonic Steel custom design and construct premium shipping container modifications. The compact portable spaces can be modified for a wide range of residential or commercial purposes. From site offices to granny flats, the key emphases are always on insulation, ventilation and condensation.

Sonic Steel’s modification process covers everything from initial design to final completion. Our creativity and innovation are built upon years of experience in the fields of architecture, engineering and shipping container repairs.

Whether you need shipping container modification for a home, bar, café or office, we will deliver a first-class structure that stands the test of time. Contact us now to find out more!


Shipping Container Offices

Portable offices and remote working arrangements are now more popular than ever before. From corporate work to recording spaces and much more, a shipping container office opens a world of possibilities.

Sonic Steel’s mobile work solutions are custom designed for maximum comfort and usability. Are you looking for an on-site office that is functionally designed and able to maintain its structural integrity as well as enduring all types of weather conditions? With years of architectural knowledge and fabricating experience, we make sure that you will be satisfied with the outcome.

Our prefabricated container offices are purposefully designed to address the important aspects of ventilation, insulation and condensation, which can often be overlooked by companies who only specialise in construction.

Every shipping container office is unique and built with high-quality technical craftsmanship. Want to make the switch to a shipping container office? Get in touch with the Sonic Steel team today!


Shipping Container Bar and Café

Shipping containers are not only great for residential living, but also perfect for commercial applications, such as small cafés and bars. Over recent years, more and more small business owners are making the switch to these compact mobile spaces.

Sonic Steel create one-of-a-kind custom commercial solutions that offer a new way to operate a café or bar. A shipping container café takes up minimal space, whilst affording enough room for a small kitchen, serving area and stock room. Unlike a food truck, a container do not require you to transport your operation back and forth every day.

Every shipping container bar/café that we create is the result of architectural and engineering expertise over the years. This includes industry’s leading ventilation and insulation technology. Our construction process is also underpinned by high-quality technical
workmanship to ensure that all containers are structurally sound.

All in all, our mobile container spaces come with everything you need to run a mobile café, bar or restaurant in Australia. Contact us now to make an enquiry!


Shipping Container Fabrications

Over the years, countless people have converted conventional shipping containers into various spaces for personal use; from shelves and roof vents for storage, to roller doors for workshop and man-cave. In Australia, Sonic Steel are at the forefront of container fabrication solutions. Our work has evolved from repairing and servicing shipping containers to creating fully furnished prefabricated containers.

Each of our fabricated containers is custom designed and manufactured in Melbourne, Victoria. They are not only the result of architectural expertise, but also high-quality technical craftsmanship. We offer a quick turnaround and simple channels of communication for each customer.

Whilst our design and manufacturing processes are in Melbourne, the portability of a container allows you to order our relocatable build from anywhere in Australia. If you have any questions about our work or would like to find out more options, don’t hesitate to get in touch!
