Project Spotlight: SERV Shipping Container Park

Project Background

Welcome to SERV, a new pickleball-themed entertainment district located in Overland Park, Kansas outside Kansas City. The indoor and outdoor entertainment complex offers a variety of food concepts, pickleball courts, yard games and private event spaces. ROXBOX led the design of the outdoor shipping container park, in which 19 shipping containers were used for food & beverage concepts, retail/office suites, bathrooms, storage, and branding.

The outdoor container park features five 40’ container kitchens, one 20’ drive-thru & walk-up cafe, five 20’ office/retail/private lounge suites, one 40’ double-wide bathroom, one 40’ dry-storage container, one 40’ cold storage container, one 40’ tower, and a 40’ container bar with two 40’ containers stacked on top to support a 20’ X 10’ LCD screen & SERV signage. With tons of seating & dining options, a stage opening up to a large turf yard, and two large video boards, the space is perfect for watch parties, summer movie nights, or a day out with family & friends. Two outdoor pickleball courts with stadium seating cap off the container park.

The SERV team capitalized on utilizing many of our standard models, thereby leading to a more efficient pre-construction phase of the project. On the other side, they chose to bring in numerous other firms which led to some delays through the construction phases of the project.

SERV’s indoor facility offers 6 pickleball courts (allowing guests to play no matter the weather), two bars, a sit-down restaurant, and multiple private event spaces. The combination of both the indoor and outdoor facilities makes SERV the perfect location for a fun day out with friends and family. As shipping container parks and large-scale modular developments become more popular, SERV has become a shining testament to how modular construction can quickly transform any property into an exciting space for the community with minimal development cost and a tremendous ROI opportunity. With the addition of our massive new Houston modular facility, we are excited to continue spearheading more container parks and larger-scale developments like SERV across the country.
