In offsite construction - or modular building - typically more than 80% of the construction is completed off site, and the component parts (or modules) are transported to the site for assembly. The sector is growing in popularity due to its many benefits such as less time on the construction site, cost-effectiveness, flexibility, improved quality control, reduced waste and sustainability. It can also help to address specific, local construction challenges, such as dealing with skilled labor shortages or meeting local regulations.

3. Modular Bathroom Pods

Using modular bathroom pods lowers construction costs by reducing construction time, improving quality and reducing on-site rework. With traditional building, a multitude of trades need to be well-coordinated to complete the bathroom installation. This requires a high degree of supervision and management on site to ensure correct sequencing and quality of work from plumbers, electricians, tilers, sealant applicators, interior designers, carpenters, and other specialists.

Bathroom pods eliminate most of these issues. Savings from waste, reduced construction times and improved quality result in better performance during use, cost savings and earlier income streams from the project. Bathrooms built in a factory offer fewer defects and allow the bathroom pod manufacturer the ability to research and implement aesthetic and functional innovations to improve the bathroom pod quality.

For bathroom pods and wet rooms, including in shipping and offshore constructions with IMO qualified solutions, Sika provides expertise with a wide range of products and systems.
