968 modular bathroom pods

Brief

Design, manufacture, deliver and install 968 robust bathroom modules that will handle the rigors of a student residence.

 

Why was modular used?

The main contractor adopted the methodology due to the extremely tight project deadline requiring four 14 storey buildings to be completed within 18 months.   Manufacturing the bathroom modules off-site removed the completion of the bathrooms from the critical path, thereby alleviating this program risk.

 

Key features

  • fully welded steel base

  • creation of a wet room with a bunded step-up floor and falls in the floor towards the shower drain

  • fully waterproofed on shower walls

  • fire and acoustic performance per the required SANS standards

  • plumbing for adjacent kitchenette included in the bathroom pod

  • architectural sign off of each unit in the factory prior to delivery that fast tracked works completion of the building on site

  • superior quality, especially in tiling, silicone work and aluminium work on doors  

  • factory finish included: plumbing and electrical reticulation, waterproofing, tiling, aluminium doors, sanware, brassware
