Bathroom Pods

MEP Utility Pods

Design, production & capacity

Pod Structure
The bathroom pods are constructed from 30x30x1.5mm SHS frame with a 12.5mm Fermacell lining for the walls and 25mm MR MDF ceiling. The floor is also constructed from a steel frame with a 18mm plywood substrate.

The team are currently developing a new lightweight steel frame system which will replace the 30x30 SHS and will reduce site works by providing a wall structure which can be boarded directly to with no additional pattressing, or brackets required.

Pod production & factory capactiy
Our factory consists of 2 production areas & 1 large storage area with easy access for loading articulated lorry’s. Total production capacity is between 50-60 POD’s per week, with a total of 2500 POD’s produced over the past 3 years

Delivery & installation

Pod Protection
Pods are wrapped using LPS1207 sheeting to protect from fire. Pods will be stropped prior to dispatch from the factory using certified 2m strops attached to the lifting point at the top of the pod.

These strops are secured to the side of the pod so they can be easily accessed from people at ground level on site. In addition to the above service, we can provide the Clients or main contractors logo to our protection sheets.

Pod Installation
The pods are sized to be easily & efficiently transported, lifted and installed. Each pod is designed to allow a tolerance gap around for manoeuvrability during installation and to ensure a perfect finished alignment. The pods can be moved via telehandler, pump truck or crane. They are then manoeuvred into position by hand.

Quality assurance

POD Quality Assurance
Each bathroom Pod is given its own unique reference, enabling the tracking of the pod throughout the entire production and installation journey.

Offsite testing will be carried out at factory on FieldView system, upon delivery and completion of the PODs copies of all FieldView reports will then be uploaded by our team onto the main contractor FieldView system, or similar as instructed.

The inspection and testing will be in the below sequence; 

  1. Build
  2. Set Out & Waterproofing Details
  3. Tiling & Decorating
  4. Electrical
  5. Mechanical
  6. Fit Out & Dispatch
