Offsite Solutions, the UK’s leading bathroom pod manufacturer, has been awarded its second contract for Moda Living – a £2.5m project to manufacture 478 steel-framed shower pods for The Lexington in Liverpool.
Designed by Falconer Chester Hall and now under construction by BCEGI, the 34-storey, New York-inspired Lexington will provide 325 high quality homes designed exclusively for build-to-rent, with apartments ranging from studios to three bedrooms.
Due for completion in 2021 and located on the waterfront, this iconic £90m scheme is set to transform the city skyline. It forms part of Liverpool Waters, a £5.6 billion project to regenerate the renowned Liverpool Docks which is also a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Offsite Solutions has developed the stylish shower pods to Moda Living’s specification which includes contemporary grey porcelain tiling throughout, square wall-mounted wash hand basin, and deluxe-sized, thermostatically-controlled rainfall shower with separate hand-held shower. A cabinet recessed into the wall adds a sleek finish and clean lines to the shower rooms.
The pods are all floorless – a unique pod solution from Offsite Solutions engineered to avoid the need for a recess in the floor slab and minimise floor build-up for each storey while achieving continuous level floors throughout the apartments.
Derek Mullarkey, Construction Manager at BCEGI said,
“Bathroom pods give us the benefit of simplified logistics, reducing the number of subcontractors on site by around six trades. The consistent and superior quality of pods is a huge advantage. Quality is often the biggest issue with in-situ fit out on major apartments projects. This then causes issues at handover because of the different skillsets involved in bathroom construction. Offsite Solutions’ pods are very good quality and their organisation for site delivery has been exceptional – consistently on time and with excellent communications. Their approach has been thorough in every area.”
Residents of The Lexington will have access to stunning shared spaces including a 17th floor sky lounge, dedicated gym and workout space, roof-top gardens with outdoor dining kitchen and flexible workspaces.
The Lexington follows the successful completion of Moda Living’s Angel Gardens in Manchester, a 35-storey tower offering high quality apartments for rent next to Amazon’s new headquarters. Here Offsite Solutions manufactured over 700 steel-framed pods for shower rooms, family bathrooms and ensuites in a £3.8m contract. The first residents are now living in the building.
Offsite Solutions offers the UK’s largest range of bathroom pods to suit different building types and applications. Options include steel-framed pods with porcelain-tiled finishes for high-end apartments, PRS, student residences and hotels; robust and low maintenance GRP composite pods for student accommodation, care homes, social housing and healthcare; hybrid pods for specialist projects, and award-winning demountable GRP pods for ease of installation in refurbishment schemes.
