Saving Time with Modular Bathroom Pods
Modular Building Institute
The use of offsite construction in the manufacturing of various products is becoming increasingly popular, as it offers a number of benefits over traditional on-site construction methods. Offsite construction refers to the construction of a product or component in a factory setting, where it is manufactured in a controlled environment with little to no distractions. This approach is particularly useful in the production of bathroom pods, which are pre-fabricated units that can be used as part of a construction project.
One of the key benefits of offsite construction is the ability to move product in controlled manufacturing conditions, which ensures that the final product is of high quality. Additionally, offsite construction is inherently waste conscious and can have minimum site impact if delivered carefully and strategically, making it a sustainable solution for construction projects.
Offsite construction can be used in a variety of construction projects, including those with tight deadlines, those built in secure environments, those where weather may impede construction, and those needing repetitive interior structures. According to a recent survey by the National Institute of Building Sciences (NIBS), 93% of respondents in the architect, engineer, contractor, and owner fields said that they had implemented some form of offsite construction in the past 12 months.
Paul Teicholz, of the Center for Integrated Facility Engineering (CIFE) at Stanford University, states that contractors have increasingly made use of offsite components to take advantage of factory conditions and specialized equipment. This has allowed for higher quality and lower cost production of components, as compared to on-site work. Although the cost of these components is included in construction cost data, the labor is not, which tends to make on-site construction appear more favorable.
Offsite construction is a great solution for those looking to complete a construction project on time and on schedule. Bathroom pods, in particular, can be an ideal solution for those looking to add efficient, high-quality bathrooms to their construction projects. By incorporating bathroom pods into traditional construction methods, contractors can ensure that their projects are completed on time, to the highest standards, and with minimum impact on the environment.
