  1. Hey AD,
    I work in the container industry in NZ. We sell. lease modify. Since I have been involved (only 4 months) I have been wanting to get our local council to look at a container accommodation park. Our city is short on accommodation and I know we can modify them simply enough. Do you have any pictures etc I could use as a template to show them. I foresee us having, for example , 10- 20 containers (Doubled high) these would be 20′ and then have a 40′ ablution block and another as toilets and laundry (split in half). Anything that could help or maybe a website that is operating as such would be gratefully received.
