The Project

Offsite Solutions delivered its second hotel bathroom project for developer Zeal Hotels – a £700,000 contract with main contractor Midas Construction.

The project was Offsite Solutions’ 16th project for Midas.

The new hotel provides quality accommodation for people working in and visiting the area. This project follows Offsite Solutions’ completion of the bathroom contract for the Holiday Inn Express which was built by Midas Construction, part of the Midas Group, for Zeal Hotels, also in Bridgwater.

The Bathroom Pod Solution

136 steel-framed bathroom pods were manufactured for the new £11.8m Ibis Plaza Hotel at Woodlands Court Business Park in Bridgwater, Somerset.

The stylish shower rooms for the Ibis Plaza were fully fitted out offsite and craned into position to reduce the installation time to just a few hours.

The pods feature:

  • A large walk-in shower with a fixed glass panel and pivot glass door
  • A contemporary square wash hand basin mounted on a floating black granite-effect shelf with a black-finished metal towel rail below
  • Wall-mounted toilet with brushed satin dual flush fitting
  • Roca sanitaryware.

The only variations in the bathroom pods were for left and right-hand formats to optimise efficiency in offsite manufacturing.

Bathroom Tiling to the Highest Standards

The tiling was finished to the highest standards using full tiles to achieve the client’s brief for a crisp and clean appearance.  Large format dark grey porcelain tiles were used for the floor and bottom two rows of wall tiles. A retro-style brick-shaped metro tile in off-white contrasts effectively with anthracite grey grout for a simplistic and elegant aesthetic.

The Customer Perspective

Tony Clark, Commercial Director, Zeal Hotels:

“We decided with our construction partner Midas that bathroom pods for these two projects were the way forward. The use of offsite manufacturing for the shower rooms brought a level and consistency of quality that is extremely difficult to achieve with in-situ construction. The pods for both schemes were designed at the early stages so the bathrooms are manufactured before work started on site. This approach worked very well.”

Neil Lewis, Senior Project Manager, Midas:

“Midas has used Offsite Solutions’ bathroom pods extensively and for 16 projects to date – from hotels to student accommodation. In addition to the quality benefits, pods reduce time on site, involve less subcontracted labour and less supervision of trades. These factors all contribute to improved efficiency on site.”
