GRP Hybrid Pods

The development of a hybrid design for GRP bathroom pods offers an enhanced level of finish for higher specification student accommodation, hotels, and apartments for market sale or build-to-rent.

The GRP hybrid pods create highly robust, low maintenance and cost-efficient bathrooms for large-scale projects which require additional design features for a contemporary appearance.

Design Features

  • Ceramic tiling – the shell structure of Offsite Solutions’ GRP bathroom pods can now be fabricated to incorporate ceramic tiles with options for completely tiled walls, inset feature walls or bands of tiles. This allows even more aesthetic flexibility for GRP units – with all the time and quality benefits of offsite construction.
  • Inset feature panels – in back-painted glass or coloured acrylic can also be specified for limitless design opportunities. These panels can be applied to the shower cubicle and as a splashback above the wash hand basin and between cabinets for a modern, stylish solution.

    The range of colours available in glass or acrylic gives designers and developers the opportunity to vary the appearance of these bathrooms in a single development, very cost effectively.
  • Demountable option for projects with restricted access – the hybrid GRP modular units can be manufactured in a demountable configuration for refurbishment and new build schemes where there may be insufficient access to install fully assembled pods. This sectional format radically reduces work on site, and offers the superior and consistent quality of factory-built bathrooms. 
  • Unique panellised system – GRP pods from Offsite Solutions use a unique panellised system which creates vertical walls and 90° corners. This design has greater visual appeal by avoiding the tapered walls of pods created from a single GRP mould.
  • Extensive library of layouts – Offsite Solutions has an extensive library of standardised GRP pod designs which architects, contractors and developers can draw on to save time and cost by using the repetition of the modular production process. With sufficient economies of scale, the design of the hybrid pods can also be project specific to suit the developer’s exact requirements.



  • An enhanced level of finish for GRP bathroom pods
  • A highly durable and easy-to-clean bathroom solution
  • Rigorous pre-delivery testing and quality assurance procedures for ready-to-use installation, mitigating defects and remedial works
  • The hybrid GRP carcass has the reassurance of a 50-year guarantee from Offsite Solutions (see terms and conditions)

Design Options

  • Vinyl floor tiles can be laid edge-to-edge for a higher quality finish
  • Cabinet carcasses can be post-formed as part of the GRP pod, ready for the addition of door fronts
  • An unrivalled choice of vanity and wall mounted cabinets
  • Rain-head showers

  • Pivot or bi-fold shower doors
  • Low energy LED downlights or under-cabinet LED lighting
  • Electrics pre-wired to a junction box to further reduce work on site
