Container based cruise ship terminal welcoming area
When a cruise ship docks, guests’ first encounter and impression of the city they’re about to visit is the welcoming area at the cruise ship terminal. DC-Supply designs and builds container based cruise ship terminal welcoming areas, so that cruise ship guests can experience a nice, warm welcoming reception at the terminal, the moment they set foot on land. We have provided welcoming areas for cruise ships in both Denmark and as far north as Greenland, offering both mobile as well as permanent custom container solutions for this purpose. A container based cruise ship welcoming area, can be built and delivered according to your specific needs and wishes – thus containing exactly the facilities that you want. Typically, the welcoming area is built with a souvenir shop and / or tourist information, a lounge and toilet facilities. It could also be relevant to incorporate a cafe or restaurant, just as the welcoming area can be built with a terrace or other type of outdoor areas – for example, in several cases we have provided solutions where the container comes equipped with a roof terrace for guests to take in the views from.
DC-Supply delivers the new visitor centre welcoming cruise ships at the Sikuki Nuuk Harbour in Greenland.
When cruise ships arrive at Aalborg, a unique vision awaits them. In collaboration with DC-Supply, a new welcome area was produced, which consists of four containers covered with wood, 200 meters of fence, and shelter in the form of a sail.
DC-Supply was able to provide a container that is not just a container, but an “H.C. Andersen store,” which was placed on Langelinie quay in Copenhagen.
Give cruise ship guests a nice warm reception with our container based welcoming area
DC-Supply designs and builds cruise ship terminal welcoming areas in containers that are adapted not only functionally but also visually in relation to the terminal’s surrounding architecture.
For the Port of Aalborg, we delivered a container based welcoming area with wood cladding on the outside and a canopy covering designed around white sails. The design matches both the architectural expression of the local environment and also the Utzon Center building, located in the immediate vicinity of the new welcoming area.
For the Sikuki Nuuk harbour in Greenland, we also delivered a welcoming area in containers for their new cruise ship terminal. Here, the solution included a visitors center with common room and toilet facilities, a technical container as well as a beautiful terrace with a view of the harbour. As in Aalborg, also in Nuuk, the container’s exterior cladding is made of wood.
A container based welcoming area can of course be developed and used for many other applications than for cruise ship terminals – In fact, used for almost any type of visitor center, a container based solution can be extremely advantageous, being not only cost effective – but also architecturally and functionally beneficial to its surroundings.
