Years ago if you drove down the highway and saw a wide-load truck carrying half of house, you might have thought modular construction meant “cookie cutter.” At one time that might have been true, as factory-built homes had limited style options and often had layouts and finishes similar to those in mobile homes.
But, thanks to manufacturing advances, modular construction is now highly adaptable to nearly any style and level of finish. On the residential side, for example, a new company named Boxabl has developed what it says are, “factory-built rooms that combine to build almost any building. In any style.”
Modular bathrooms are also customizable. While much of our work is with select-service hotels, Oldcastle SurePods modular bathrooms are also an excellent and well proven match for full-finish/luxury hotels. As a matter of fact, many of the luxury hotel brands prefer SurePods due to the consistently high manufactured quality they offer. A few examples of high-end hotels sporting our pre-fab bathrooms are:
Broadmoor West, Colorado Springs, Colorado (completed spring 2014)
Grand Hyatt Baha Mar, Nassau, Bahamas (completed April 2017)
Wilshire Grand InterContinental Hotel, Los Angeles, California(completed June 2017)
Embassy Suites by Hilton, Seattle, Washington (scheduled to open February 2018)
Omni Louisville Hotel, Louisville, Kentucky (scheduled to open March 2018)
We work with developers, property owners and their architects to provide bathrooms that support the property’s brand and surpass guests’ expectations. For example, the Broadmoor West bills itself as, “a legendary Forbes Five-Star and AAA Five-Diamond resort with impeccable service and distinctive amenities.” Take a look for yourself at the resort’s prefabricated bathrooms, which feature five-fixtures, including double sinks, a soaking tub, shower stall and a separated toilet water closet. Once you do, we think you’ll agree that modular construction can mean full-finish, not cookie cutter.
