Utility Pods

Fitted out in the factory and delivered to site fully completed, utility pods from Offsite Solutions are designed to accommodate all the mechanical, heating, technology and building services required for individual apartments or studios for build-to-rent or build-to-sell developments.

This is a premium product manufactured entirely offsite to suit specific project requirements.

The pods are delivered to site pre-plumbed, pre-wired and fully fitted out to reduce installation time to just a few hours. The units are typically located in a hallway, within an apartment, adjacent to the kitchen and have an open-fronted design ready for the fitting of double doors or the addition of a stud wall on site.
