Project Notes

Florida Atlantic University dormitory bathroom pods helped to accelerate construction of two apartment buildings, totaling 489,000 square feet and providing 1,216 beds for upper-division and graduate students. Construction began in March 2010, with the first students moving in late July 2011.

This project was schedule driven with a lofty goal of getting students in prior to 2011-2012 school year. Oldcastle Modular bathroom pods helped Balfour Beatty to meet their aggressive schedule and get the students back to school.

Oldcastle Modular pre-fabricated bathrooms were part of an overall innovative approach to the construction of the dormitories. Tunnel-formed concrete super-structure and site-cast facade panels were also employed as part of the construction.
