Perfect pods

Offsite Solutions has been awarded the highest value project to be awarded its history, thanks to an £8m contract by Berkeley Homes for the offsite manufacture of more than 900 high specification bathrooms. These are destined for the 68-storey Valiant Tower at South Quay Plaza – a landmark development in the historic London Docklands. Designed by Foster + Partners, South Quay Plaza will be one of the tallest residential schemes in Europe, reaching a height of 220m.

For this contract, also the UK’s largest bathroom pod contract for a single residential scheme, Offsite Solutions is manufacturing a mix of en-suite shower rooms and bathrooms with walk-in and/or over-bath showers. The steel-framed bathroom pods for the luxury apartments feature built-in steam-free mirrored cabinets with recessed LED lighting, integrated underfloor heating, flush-mounted shower trays, Villeroy & Boch sanitaryware, contemporary fittings, and full-height glass shower screens.

The delivery programme for this phase will be completed by the end of 2019.
