It is not a new notion that modular design offers many benefits to traditional on-site construction. Building in a climate controlled, indoor factor has shown to lower construction costs, use materials more efficiently and generate an earlier stream of income in certain scenarios.
A new form of modular construction that has shown an increase in popularity is the construction of bathroom pods. Bathroom pods follow a factory-like philosophy, which allows repeatable components to be manufactured at a faster pace.
The current markets that bathroom pods are serving include: hospitality, student housing, healthcare and multifamily homes. These markets have acknowledged that they will be duplicating the same design over again and have taken advantage of a way to make factory operations 250% more efficient. Bathroom pods also allow manufacturers the ability to dip their toe in modular construction by allowing one facet of their construction if the rest of their building will be made in a traditional on-site approach.
Bathroom pods while manufactured in the factory are then shipped and can be installed by contractors. Typically the logistics for shipping and installation is predetermined and the pods can be delivered in as little as 22 days.
