Case Study

Air Cargo Container Office for Lockheed Martin


An Office That Can Travel By Plane

 Lockheed Martin, a leading company in aerospace technology and global security, needed a mobile field office and workshop. They contacted Falcon Structures to create a portable office out of modified shipping containers that could fit on an airplane. 


Key Challenges

Creating an office that could travel by plane

Lockheed Martin needed a portable shipping container office and workshop that could be transported by plane. Unfortunately, standard storage containers are too tall for airplane cargo height limitations.

A custom sized shipping container office

Falcon Structures trimmed two shipping containers by half a foot. They also needed to ensure that all additional features were flush with the container. None of the window casings, handles, panels or hook-ups could stick out over the edge of the container. Because we modified the container to fit within air-transport size limits, Lockheed Martin could easily load and fly their portable shipping container office and workshop as standard airplane cargo.
