Manufactured at our Wurtland facility, DropBox Inc. has just completed its largest footprint to-date, the HEAF (High Explosives Applications Facility) chemical storage container. This multiyear project is 54' long and 15' wide and currently on its way to California.

Due to COVID-19, our team developed a new means of interface with the customer to support remote customer reviews during the design and manufacturing processes. This included web meetings to meet the customer's design requirements and demonstrate the functionality of various engineered systems, virtual models, and walk-throughs shot with a 360° camera. 

The container contained the following interior spaces:

      • Shelf Storage - 370 ft.of stainless steel
      • Casework - 20 linear ft. of laboratory casework and counters
      • Cold Storage - Allowance for customer refrigerators and freezers
      • Corrosives Storage - Acid storage lockers and emergency shower
      • Flammable Storage - Flammable storage lockers
      • Wet Lab - 4 ft. lab hood and 10 linear ft. of casework, sink, and counters

This unit was very unique to the current practices that DropBox Inc. uses. We utilized engineers, architects, and designers from all around the country to design this one-of-a-kind container. Unique features included:

      • Architectural - ADA design and H3 occupancy with 1-HR fire-rated walls
      • Structural - Custom enclosure designed Seismic Design Category F with 50 ft. trench drain sloped to one end and a sloped roof
      • Plumbing - Hot water supply with recirculation pump and cold water supply
      • HVAC - Single-pass air system with wall-mounted HVAC supply and fume hood blower exhaust
      • Electrical - Normal and emergency power distribution

What are the Benefits of Offsite Construction?

DropBox Inc.'s offsite manufacturing facility allows us to assist companies with overcoming numerous obstacles that are associated with traditional construction techniques. Offsite construction, also known as modular construction, is defined as the planning, design, fabrication, and assembly of building elements at one location and relocating them to another location where they will be quickly and efficiently installed into a permanent structure. So how does this construction method benefit companies? Here’s what we know:

Altered Timelines

When working with large construction projects, most of them have a tendency to take longer to finish than originally planned due to unforeseen delays such as scheduling errors, weather, and more. One of the benefits of offsite construction is that it's completed in nearly half the time of traditional construction. Unlike traditional construction, offsite construction allows the structure to be built in a controlled location once it arrives on site while the site is being prepared.

Less Site Disruption

When working on an offsite location, project managers will experience reduced costs associated with setup, personnel, materials, and equipment.

Guaranteed Craftsmen & Workers

By using a modular approach, each build is handled through fully staffed manufacturing practices including welding/fabrication, painting, carpentry, electrical, HVAC, and plumbing.

Design-Build vs. Design-Bid-Build Process

By combining both design and construction services within the same entity, project owners will receive faster delivery, less associated risk, cost-effective materials and methods, and integrated services all under one contract.

A Reflection on DropBox Inc.'s Twenty Years as a Company

ISO Shipping container modifications, DropBox Inc, ISO Shipping container, shipping container modifications, Shipping container, custom shipping container modification, custom ISO shipping container modification, Robert Slagel, ReinventingTheBox, 20th Anniversary

As DropBox Inc. celebrates its 20th anniversary, we look back on the years and reflect on our time as a company. Throughout its development, DropBox has grown in size, product offerings, and customer reach. 

In the year 2000, DropBox Inc. was created to invent unique, turnkey tools for industry, in part, to convert and repurpose shipping containers. Robert Slagel, President & CEO, saw a need for contractors and industrial plants to have turnkey portable restrooms, portable access control for manpower, portable showers, etc. that would address specific needs on their projects. Slagel and his team have been repurposing shipping containers to fulfill these needs by Reinventing the Box for customers around the world ever since.

Slagel said, "There were challenges when I first started. As a matter of fact, there are just as many challenges today as there were 20 years ago. Probably even more challenges. As our company grows, the challenges become a bit more sophisticated. You have to be prepared for any challenges by staying focused on achieving your goals. Meanwhile, I continue to listen to the customers and let them help me 'steer the ship.' Good relationships with our customers and paying attention to them have been very valuable throughout the years in helping us grow and morph."

DropBox Inc. would like to thank the Tri State for having provided such a wonderful place to call our headquarters. It has been a pleasure for our company to operate in this area for the past two decades. We look forward to the future and continuing to operate out of the Tri State for years to come.
