Offsite Solutions has been appointed by principal contractor Midgard to provide 839 bathroom and shower pods for a new £260m build-to-rent neighbourhood now under construction for Moda Living in Hove, Sussex.

The £4.2m contract is Offsite Solutions’ fourth and largest for Moda to date and brings the total number of pods ordered for the developer to more than 2,600.

The latest win follows the successful delivery of bathroom pods for Moda communities in Manchester and Liverpool – and Glasgow which is currently in manufacture.

Due for completion early in 2024 and designed by Whittam Cox Architects, the six apartment buildings that form part of a new inter-generational urban village at Sackville Road in Hove will provide 564 studio, one, two and three-bedroom apartments for rent to individuals and families.

Ryan Newman, Project Manager at Midgard, said: “Having worked with Offsite Solutions previously, I fully appreciate the benefits of factory production for bathrooms.

“Offsite manufacturing generates programme reductions and means less activity on site so there are fewer trades and interfaces to manage. We will simply drop the pods into position for rapid service connections. We also expect quality to be better and more consistent because the bathroom fitout takes place under factory conditions.”

“This is Offsite Solutions’ first project with Midgard, and I am pleased to report that our experience so far has been very positive.”

James Stephens, Managing Director of Offsite Solutions, said: “We partnered with Moda and Midgard to engineer the pod solutions at the initial design stages of the Hove scheme. This early engagement maximises the benefits and efficiency of offsite manufacturing and standardisation, to the benefit of both the developer and the contractor.

“Pod solutions work very well for build-to-rent developments, and we are delighted to be awarded our fourth project for Moda. On completion of Sackville Road and their Holland Park neighbourhood in Glasgow, we will have manufactured over 2,600 bathroom pods for this client.

“Our sister company, Deanestor, is also working on Sackville Road, providing kitchens and fitted wardrobes in a separate £3.7m fitout contract – a fantastic achievement for our family-owned group of companies.”

Offsite Solutions will manufacture a total of 839 pods for Sackville Road in three configurations – bathrooms, shower rooms, and family bathrooms – all designed to Moda’s high interior design specification.

All the pods will be supplied floorless. This solution avoids the need for a recess in the floor slab on site to minimise floor build-up for each storey whilst achieving continuous level floors throughout each apartment.
