Entirely constructed out of 96 refitted shipping containers, Boxpark has recently opened as a new eating and drinking venue. The steel containers are stacked two-high to form ground and first floor levels, with an eating courtyard in the centre. BDP Civil and Structural Engineer Director Jonathan Pye said "The roof structure, which measures approximately 20m x 20m has been designed as a sway frame to ensure rigidity, while a series of Macalloy cross bracings located between the primary columns adds some extra lateral stability."
