Bacton company Portable Space has won a contract to supply 16 converted shipping containers to a new seafront project in Felixstowe.

The containers will supply more than 1,000 square metres of outlets at new leisure scheme Beach Street. These will be unique outlets, offering antiques, vintage clothing, flowers, gifts and street food.

The shopping and leisure scheme which has recently been given the go-ahead by planners is expected to open in the summer. It has been designed to use containers set in block paved 'streets' with pathways, seating and landscaping.
