Offsite Solutions Awarded Contract for Moda Build-to-Rent Scheme

Offsite Solutions, the UK’s leading bathroom pod manufacturer, has been awarded a £3m contract to manufacture 588 bathroom pods for its third major build-to-rent neighbourhood for Moda Living. This is currently under construction by Robertson Group.

Holland Park in Glasgow is on the site of the former Strathclyde Police HQ and will provide 433 studios and one, two and three-bedroom apartments in four blocks up to 19 storeys, arranged around a landscaped courtyard. This will create a vibrant new neighbourhood and will help to address the under-supply of high-quality homes for rent in the city. The scheme is designed by Haus Collective and Ryder Architecture.

“We are looking forward to bringing our best-in-class, professionally-managed homes for rent and the Moda brand to the people of Glasgow. Our experience of working with Offsite Solutions on other schemes has been very positive, with consistently-high quality standards, the efficiency of offsite manufacture, and exceptional programme management,” said Mark Howe, Project Director at Moda Living.

Offsite Solutions has developed the steel-framed bathroom, shower and ensuite pods to Moda’s high specification, which includes contemporary light grey porcelain tiling throughout, square wall-mounted wash hand basin, wall-hung toilet, brushed steel accessories, heated towel rail, and recessed, colour-matched cabinetry for a sleek and stylish finish.

The shower rooms have deluxe-sized rainfall showers, and the bathrooms are pre-fitted with both overhead and hand-held showers, and a pivot shower screen.

The pods are all supplied floorless – a unique pod solution engineered by Offsite Solutions. This advancement in pod technology avoids the need for a recess in the floor slab to minimise floor build-up for each storey whilst achieving continuous level floors.

“We were engaged by Robertson and Moda at the early design stages of this project to develop the use of offsite construction for the shower rooms, ensuites and bathrooms. This collaboration has really optimised the benefits of offsite manufacturing and gives the client and main contractor greater certainty of cost and programme, as well as simplified procurement and improved quality,” added James Stephens, Managing Director of Offsite Solutions.

“We have manufactured around 1,200 bathroom pods for Moda to date – Holland Park follows our successful delivery of pods for the award-winning Moda, Angel Gardens in Manchester and Moda, The Lexington in Liverpool.”

Offsite Solutions offers the UK’s largest range of pods to suit many different building types and applications. Options include steel-framed bathroom pods with porcelain-tiled finishes for high-end apartments, PRS, student residences and hotels; robust and low maintenance GRP composite shower pods for student accommodation, build-to-rent, care homes, social housing and healthcare; hybrid pods for specialist projects, and award-winning demountable GRP pods for ease of installation in refurbishment schemes.

Offsite Solutions has also developed steel-framed utility pods for apartments and studios for build-to-rent or build-to-sell developments.
