The Project

Offsite Solutions’ second contract for Moda was a £2.5m project to manufacture 478 steel-framed shower pods for The Lexington in Liverpool.

The 34-storey, New York-inspired Lexington provides 325 high quality homes designed exclusively for build-to-rent, with apartments ranging from studios to three bedrooms.

Located on the waterfront, this iconic £90m scheme has transformed the city skyline. It is part of Liverpool Waters, a £5.6 billion project to regenerate the renowned Liverpool Docks which is also a UNESCO World Heritage site.

The Bathroom Pod Solution

Offsite Solutions developed the stylish shower pods to Moda Living’s specification which includes:

  • Contemporary grey porcelain tiling throughout
  • Square wall-mounted wash hand basin
  • Deluxe-sized, thermostatically-controlled rainfall shower with separate hand-held shower
  • A recessed wall cabinet adds a sleek finish and clean lines to the shower rooms.

The pods were all floorless – a unique pod solution from Offsite Solutions engineered to avoid the need for a recess in the floor slab and minimise floor build-up for each storey whilst achieving continuous level floors throughout the apartments.

The Customer Perspective

Derek Mullarkey, Construction Manager, BCEGI:

Bathroom pods gave us the benefit of simplified logistics, reducing the number of subcontractors on site by around six trades. The consistent and superior quality of pods was a huge advantage. Quality is often the biggest issue with in-situ fit out on major apartments projects. This then causes issues at handover because of the different skillsets involved in bathroom construction. Offsite Solutions’ pods were very good quality and their organisation for site delivery was exceptional – consistently on time and with excellent communications. Their approach was thorough in every area.”

Andrew Parker, UK Director of Projects, Moda Living:

“We are thrilled that construction of Moda, The Lexington has completed. Liverpool is a fantastic city with so much heritage and we have worked hard to create a neighbourhood that celebrates all of its history and culture. We’ve seen that vision realised throughout the construction process, but we look forward to welcoming our new residents in the coming weeks to bring this thriving new Liverpool neighbourhood to life.

“We are particularly proud to have delivered this project during the Covid-19 pandemic. The dedication of the on and offsite teams kept The Lexington moving and it is thanks to their hard work that the building has been safely delivered on time.”

Stylish Apartment Living

Residents of The Lexington have access to stunning shared spaces including a 17th floor sky lounge, dedicated gym and workout space, roof-top gardens with outdoor dining kitchen and flexible workspaces.

The Lexington follows the successful completion of Moda Living’s Angel Gardens in Manchester, a 35-storey tower offering high quality apartments for rent next to Amazon’s new headquarters. Here Offsite Solutions manufactured over 700 steel-framed pods for shower rooms, family bathrooms and ensuites in a £3.8m contract.
