The Project

Developed by Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield (URW), Coppermaker Square is a £670m residential-led development next to Westfield Stratford City shopping centre in London – and is one of the UK’s largest single-site build-to-rent schemes.

This high-quality mixed-use development has created around 1,200 new homes for rent in 11 buildings – three residential towers and courtyard mansion blocks up to 11 storeys.

The scheme forms part of the redevelopment of Stratford City and the Olympic Village and is set to transform Stratford town centre into an exceptional build-to-rent location for London.

Coppermaker Square provides one, two, three and four-bedroom homes with amenities including a gym, swimming pool, workspaces, and high-quality public realm and open spaces, such as play areas.

The Bathroom Pod Solution

Offsite Solutions was appointed to supply nearly 1,000 high specification bathroom pods in two multi-million-pound contracts.

We have manufactured 991 high specification, steel-framed bathroom pods in two phases, which ran concurrently.

There were two pod types and each have two colour palettes in dark or light grey.

There were 16 generic pod types for these phases, in four distinct colour palettes for a total of six buildings. The pods were delivered to a 12-month programme which involved over 200 deliveries to site.

Each pod took around 5 days from start to fully finished bathroom, including steel-framed construction, tiling, electrics, plumbing and fitting out.

There were:

  • 238 unique parts for each pod
  • 667 baths
  • 309 showers
  • 21,973sqm of tiling to walls and floors
  • 86,000 kg of tile adhesives
  • 991 toilets
  • Bathrooms for apartments on 78 levels.

The Customer Perspective

Keith Whitmore, Head of Development, Design and Construction UK/Italy and Director of Construction Management Europe at URW:

“A key driver on Coppermaker Square was to use offsite construction as far as possible to create efficiencies, support our Better Places 2030 CSR programme, and to contribute to safer working environments by reducing numbers on site.”

“The Offsite Solutions team were responsive to all our design requirements with a high level of engagement at every level, and working with them has been seamless despite the complexities of this project and working through the pandemic.”

One of the Leading Pod Specialists in Europe

This project reaffirms our position as one of the leading bathroom pod specialists in Europe and in the fast-growing UK build-to-rent sector. It is hugely positive that the pods for these phases of Coppermaker Square – a premium residential project – were manufactured in the UK.

Cherry Park follows our successful delivery of other luxury bathroom projects for prestigious, large-scale residential developments in London including Wood Wharf – a private rental scheme in Canary Wharf, and South Quay Plaza for Berkeley Homes in London Docklands.

A Full Range of Pod Solutions for Build-to-rent Schemes

The private rental sector is one of the fastest-growing areas in property development. Offsite Solutions offers a range of pod solutions for utility rooms, bathrooms, shower rooms and ensuites to suit build-to-rent schemes.

Steel-framed pods allow traditional porcelain-tiled finishes. Enhanced GRP pods have a host of design options, including porcelain-tiled feature walls, to create a strong aesthetic whilst allowing developers and operators to meet their budgetary aspirations and reduce future maintenance costs.
