Bathroom pod manufacturer Offsite Solutions has been awarded its fourth package for student accommodation developer, urbanest.

The £1.8m contract is to manufacture over 500 high specification ensuite shower pods for urbanest City in London.

The £90m mixed use student scheme at Vine Street in the City of London is under construction by Balfour Beatty and will deliver 656 student beds alongside 75,000sqft of commercial offices and 10,000 sqft of incubator space for start-up businesses.

Offsite Solutions has a longstanding relationship with urbanest, having supplied bathroom pods for other student schemes across London.

By moving bathroom construction into a controlled factory environment, fewer materials and labour are required on site which is a key benefit for a constrained central London site.

Angus Kearin, Head of Development at urbanest said, “Building bathrooms offsite for multi-occupancy buildings such as student accommodation makes really good sense in our view, particularly in the centre of London.

“Maximising offsite construction saves a huge amount of work on site and allows us to dispense with several processes. The quality of bathroom pods is superior, and delivery is consistently on time and on budget.”

“We have worked with Offsite Solutions very successfully on a number of our projects. They collaborate with our design and construction teams to give us exactly the right product offer for our students. Their logistics and the reliability and quality control of their pod manufacturing process are unparalleled in the market.”

The ensuite shower rooms for urbanest City will have a premium steel-framed construction and are fully fitted out in the factory to reduce work on site to just a few hours.

Offsite Solutions has the design and production capabilities to manufacture and fit out 11 different pod types for this project.

Each pod will be produced for a precise location within the building to ensure a highly efficient delivery and installation programme can be implemented. The pods will be installed using a tower crane.
