At DropBox Inc., we can modify any of our standard products or build a completely custom solution to meet your job-specific needs. However, it's important for us to understand what the application of your shipping container modification product is in order to develop scope. For our team to do this, we must ask our customers some important questions. 

1. Which class, regulations or other standard must your need comply with?

Depending on your industry and application, there are many standards that you may have to comply with. This can include standards such as ISO 5 to 8 class standard, FDA and ISO-14644 regulations, GMP, etc. By answering this question, we can ensure that your product meets all of your code requirements.

2. What are the required operating conditions?

Depending on what you are planning on placing in your shipping container modification, it may be beneficial to install an HVAC system. HVAC design is driven by cleanliness of the room but also by the required temperature, humidity, and pressure differential. We’ll need to know how many people will be working in the space, the equipment in place, the heat it generates (watt), and where the unit will be placed geographically. 

3. Do you have a sketch of the product that you're considering?

Illustrations of the product that you're considering gives us a visual idea of what features you wish your product to have. By illustrating the movements/flow inside the room as well the entrance and exit of both material and personnel, it will help us gain an understanding of what you had in mind. Other design elements you can include are how many doors and windows you would like, where work benches would be located, if you need airlocks, etc.

4. What will you be installing into the product that you're considering?

If you're installing something such as a fume hood, casework, or other cabinetry to your product, are we to provide and install or will your team be doing so? If you choose to have our team provide and install the features, we must also know if you would like our in-house design/engineering team to come up with the solution or not.

5. What space will you be working with? 
In order for our team to manufacture a product that works best for your jobsite, it's important for us to understand where it is going to be placed to prevent sinking, violations of code requirements, rusting, etc. To gain this understanding, we ask our customers to answer the following: 
          1. Inside or outside an existing structure
          2. Permanent, semi-permanent or temporary application
          3. Site location (zip code)
          4. State or local code requirements
          5. Foundation type
          6. Input power available
          7. Power consumption or need by piece of equipment
          8. Interior wall finishes preference
          9. Overall interior footprint needed (square foot)
          10. Casework or other cabinetry requirements
6. What is the overall timeline for your project?

Another important question that we ask is when are you wanting to receive your product from the receipt of the purchase order (P.O.) to it arriving on your jobsite. This will allow us to develop a timeline and decide whether or not the project time will need to be increased.
