Bathroom pod manufacturer Offsite Solutions has been awarded a £3m contract by Wates Construction to supply 440 bespoke steel-framed bathroom pods for Anthology’s Hale Works development in Tottenham Hale, London.

Designed by Hawkins Brown Architects and due for completion in 2021, the scheme is a 32-storey, 107 metre tower which will house 279 apartments and 12,500sqft of commercial space.

The £82m development forms part of the multi award-winning Hale Village regeneration and provides a selection of studios, one, two, and three-bedroom homes for private sale and affordable housing.

The striking tower will be a landmark for Tottenham Hale and is designed to achieve the highest design and environmental standards.

Offsite Solutions is manufacturing two pod types for the Hale Works – a bathroom and an ensuite shower room, which will be delivered to site in phases until summer 2020.

Fully fitted out in the factory, the pods will have a dark wood-effect finish to the mirrored cabinet, open shelving unit and bath panel, a heated towel rail, large porcelain floor and wall tiles, LED downlighting, composite stone vanity top, overhead and hand-held showers, and contemporary square-edged, semi-recessed basin.

Chris Powell, Project Director at Anthology said: “As with all our projects, the bathrooms and ensuites for the Hale Works have a luxurious but understated feel with carefully-selected materials and a simplicity of design to achieve the quality of finish we are looking for.”

“The principal reason for specifying a pod solution for this project was to alleviate the issue of space restrictions on site for both materials and labour.

“Moving construction of the bathrooms entirely offsite and into a factory is a huge benefit for a tower scheme such as this. We found it very useful to visit Offsite Solutions’ factory and the advance manufacture of some pods allowed us to prototype the specification and benchmark quality.”

Paul Williams, Senior Design Manager at Wates Construction said: “Bathroom pods give us the benefit of a consistent level of finish, improved quality, and fewer materials and trades on site which mean less management supervision and the need for fewer site facilities.

“When specifying bathroom pods, we require consistency in the build up of the pod walls and ease of access to M&E connections for ongoing maintenance.

“I am pleased to report that we have had a very positive relationship with Offsite Solutions throughout the design development phase.”
