340: CONTAINER DOORS

1

Good morning, I am an Architect from Palo Alto California who is interested in obtaining some cost information with regards to the Schweiss Container with hydraulic or bifold strap doors. We are designing a project for a relatively small site using shipping containers as the architecture and would like some pricing information regarding using your unit to incorporate it into a ground floor cafe/coffee shop use. We would be looking for a container door  unit similar to what you have shown on your website(1 end door and 1 door on the long side about 12' wide), although we'd be finishing the interior in conjunction with other shipping containers making up the space. Any order of magnitude pricing would be very helpful at this early schematic stage of our design as we are budgeting for the project now. thank you and look forward to hearing from you.

I like the idea of your company's "Build your own door" package. Would you do this for a bifold container door also. It is a smaller door and I think a a hydraulic lift would be cost prohibitive. So if it's possible I would like a quote of what a "build your own door" kit cost and also a quote for what it would cost for you to manufacture the whole Schweiss container door set up for me.

I'm working on a senior community it the Balt./DC suburbs and I have a client request to have a dumpster/compactor container door enclosure on site. I'd like to provide a bifold door that would allow the trash trucks to access the compactors, but be high enough that the truck won't hit the door when it comes in to grab the trash. The opening I need clear is about 20' wide by about 15' high. And I'm hoping to use materials/colors that match the adjacent building to try to make this gigantic bifold container door "disappear" as much as possible. Do you guys have the capability to make a door within these parameters? Thanks! Greg
