by Brianna Crandall — March 17, 2017 — The Modular Building Institute (MBI) recently published Saving Time with Modular Bathroom Pods, a whitepaper that provides an overview of bathroom pods; answers the pertinent questions of when they should be used on a project, what the costs are, and what installation involves; and showcases the advantages of using bathroom pods on a construction project.
The whitepaper also includes case studies across various markets that have successfully integrated bathroom pods.
According to the whitepaper, choosing to use bathroom pods can lead to real benefits realized in purchasing, design, production, quality control, and shortened completion times. The use of bathroom pods greatly reduces the amount of work on-site, and reduces the amount of on-site coordination typically required for multiple trades to work in one area, adds the paper.
Each role on a project is enhanced with bathroom pods, including developers, contractors, and inspectors. The whitepaper shows how bathroom pods can improve a project.
The whitepaper was compiled by MBI staff with information contributed by MBI members Intelligent Offsite, PIVOTek, Easy Building Solutions, PUDA Industrial Co., and non-member BLOX Modular. Their input provided insightful viewpoints into the modular bathroom pod industry, says MBI.
