The Project

Holland Park, developed by Moda Living, will create a vibrant new neighbourhood in Glasgow and will help to address the under-supply of high-quality homes for rent in the city.

The scheme is on the site of the former Strathclyde Police HQ and will provide 433 studios and one, two and three-bedroom apartments in four blocks up to 19 storeys, arranged around a landscaped courtyard.


Early Engagement to Optimise the Benefits of Offsite Manufacture

Offsite Solutions was awarded the £3m contract to manufacture 588 bathroom pods for Holland Park, its third major build-to-rent project for Moda.

Robertson and Moda engaged with Offsite Solutions at the early design stages to develop the use of offsite construction for the shower rooms, ensuites and bathrooms.

This collaboration really optimised the benefits of offsite manufacturing and gave the client and main contractor greater certainty of cost and programme, as well as simplified procurement and improved quality.


Floorless Pods to Minimise Floor Build-up

The pods are all supplied floorless – a unique pod solution engineered by Offsite Solutions. This advancement in pod technology avoids the need for a recess in the floor slab to minimise floor build-up for each storey whilst achieving continuous level floors.


Contemporary Designs for Bathrooms, Shower Rooms and Ensuites

Offsite Solutions developed the steel-framed bathroom, shower and ensuite pods to Moda’s high specification, which includes contemporary light grey porcelain tiling throughout, square wall-mounted wash hand basin, wall-hung toilet, brushed steel accessories, heated towel rail, and recessed, colour-matched cabinetry for a sleek and stylish finish.

The shower rooms have deluxe-sized rainfall showers, and the bathrooms are pre-fitted with both overhead and hand-held showers, and a pivot shower screen.


The Customer Perspective

Mark Howe, Project Director, Moda Living:

“We are looking forward to bringing our best-in-class, professionally-managed homes for rent and the Moda brand to the people of Glasgow. Our experience of working with Offsite Solutions on other schemes has been very positive, with consistently high quality standards, the efficiency of offsite manufacture, and exceptional programme management.”


Matt Haggerty, Architectural Director, Ryder Architecture:

“This new neighbourhood will play a significant role in revitalising Glasgow’s city centre, with its focus on delivering the luxurious internal and external living environments synonymous with the Moda Living brand. The use of bathroom pods will bring the process-driven efficiencies of offsite manufacturing and enhanced quality but with no compromise on design.”


1200 Bathroom Pods for Moda
