Container bars, cafes, kiosks, kitchens and restaurants are on trend and making an impact worldwide.

This Eco friendly and easily mobilised options are proving to be a great option for many industries.

Every cafe build is unique and designed to suit my clients specific needs.

UBuild Containers can design a containerised shopfront for any industry.

Industrial design trends are sweeping the globe with amazing new containerised architecture popping up everywhere you look.

UBuild can provide you with a containerised facility on a shoe string budget,  or we can produce something high end with all the bells and whistles. Whatever the scope, UBuild will have the solution.

Pricing can vary dramatically, but here are some rough figures to give you an idea.

  • $20K – this is your starting point for most 6m and over containerised shop fronts
  • $30-45K – we are now moving into including food prep areas and stainless benches etc
  • $45-65K – this is where your turnkey (cafe only) fit outs will set you back (no cooking equipment or vent system included)
  • $65-$85K – this will get you a turnkey facility which can include but not be limited to:
  • Bar/Taps
  • Coffee Machine
  • Multiple Sinks & Basins
  • Dishwasher
  • Commercial Cooking Appliances & Range Hood System
  • Upright & Under Bench Refrigeration
  • Engineering
  • Drafting
  • Branding
  • Design

The majority of container bars & cafes I have built over the last 10 years have sat between the $40K and $90K mark excluding GST.

Some things to think about before we progress are:

  • What type of business are you running
  • What facilities will you require
  • Shop Front Only
  • Prep and Pack Only
  • Cafe Fitout including food pre station
  • Cooking Stations (What type)
  • Mechanical Ventilation
  • Certificaiton & Compliance
  • Installation Serivce
  • Turnkey Service or Owner Builder
  • Appliances / No Appliances

If you are unsure, give me a call, we can work it out together. There are a number of things I will need to run over with you before generating your individual proposal.
