Since 2009, Boxman Studios has worked with global brands to create some of the most iconic structures imaginable out of old shipping containers. And while the worldwide trend to utilize decommissioned shipping containers continues to grow, there has never been anything like an industry standard to ensure quality and safety for the modification of these containers. Boxman is out to change that.
Intermodal shipping containers were designed for a single purpose - to transport cargo over land and sea via road, ship, or rail. It’s a concept that has changed global trade. And while shipping containers are extremely well-suited for the purpose of shipping, the moment a torch comes into contact with a container for any type of modification, the structural integrity of the container changes.
In an effort to ensure that their structures are as safe as they are innovative, Boxman Studios has implemented a policy to adhere to standards developed and tested by the American Society of Mechanical Engineering.
“The ASME maintains standards that have been developed and tested to ensure that structures like ours are built to the highest quality possible, and are safe, insurable, and meet temporary and permanent building codes,” says Boxman’s Troy Selberg, VP of Manufacturing. “Our fabricators and finishers build to these standards. It’s not easy or cheap, and we’re the only container modification company in America that adheres to these standards. So why do we do it? To ensure that anyone who interacts with our environments is safe.”
Combined with a lean production policy, and Six Sigma philosophy, the result is a safer, higher quality product for its clients. Because Boxman Studios handles the design, manufacturing, and logistics for all of their activations, they maintain tight control over the entire process - which translates to a better experience for its clients and their audience.
