& Planning

The driver welfare centre was created using a 40ft high cube shipping container and includes an internal seating area and fitted kitchenette. The integrated, swing bar stools were designed by our in-house design technician and manufactured by our fabrication team.

Working together with the team at Andrew Scott, the management company looking after the project as a whole, it was decided that the the exterior of the shipping container conversion was to be clad using FunderMax and painted in pastel tones to unify the container with its surroundings.

The roofing system with guttering was supplied by Tata Steel Construction.

The new transport hub brings together bus, rail, taxi, cycle and pedestrian facilities in a safe and modern environment that has created a vibrant gateway for Port Talbot town. The improvements were essential in supporting businesses and stimulation the local economy.

The shipping container welfare centre provides a comfortable communal space for drivers during their breaks.
