Modular containers transform lot into Game Day HQ
What could transform a parking lot into the most popular spot on campus? Ikoniq containers designed to offer everything fans want to show their team spirit.

When the University of Illinois opened its new Grange Grove on campus in 2015, two Ikoniq portables helped take the Fighting Illini fan experience to a new level. The Gameday Spirit Fan Store and the Beer Garden allowed fans to have their tailgating fun right on campus.

The team store presents 900 square feet of indoor and outdoor shopping space, allowing Illini fans to enjoy a covered shopping experience all season long offering team and school apparel, gifts, and souvenirs — in a structure that was easily installed along the green lawn outside the stadium.

The Beer Garden allows for fans to enjoy a covered recreational experience before and during the game, eliminating the need for parking lot tailgating or students and fans bringing coolers to the stadium.

Beyond game days, the Grange Grove, with its Ikoniq-built structures, is also a popular on-campus site for outdoor concerts.
