A SOMERSET firm has won a £4.5 million contract to provide bathroom pods for an exclusive London development.

Offsite Solutions has been awarded the contract to manufacture high-specification bathroom pods for Canary Wharf’s new private rental apartment tower at its new district, Wood Wharf.

The Highbridge-based company is supplying 443 pods for 327 private rental apartments at 10 George Street – the iconic 35-storey tower and the adjacent six-storey building.

The prestigious waterside development is the first application of Offsite Solutions’ new steel and concrete pods, which provide a fully waterproofed solution for luxury wet rooms and bathrooms.

Leighton Aurelius, project manager at Canary Wharf Contractors, said, “Bathroom pods give us the benefit of better quality control and ease of installation.

"Our requirement was for high specification bathrooms. We have been impressed with Offsite Solutions’ factory, design team, logistics and pre-delivery testing.

"It is great to have the pods manufactured in the UK and the project is going very well. The service from Offsite Solutions has been faultless and second to none.”

The mixed-use scheme is developed as a glass and aluminium tower with a stepped roofscape overlooking the Canary Wharf basin and a new waterside park.

It forms part of Canary’s Wharf’s new district, Wood Wharf, with phase one due for completion in 2020.

Offsite Solutions offers a comprehensive and expanding range of bathroom pods to suit different building types and applications, including steel-framed pods with traditional tiled finishes for high-end apartments, student residences and hotels; robust and low maintenance GRP composite pods for student accommodation, care homes, social housing and healthcare; hybrid pods for specialist projects, and award-winning demountable GRP pods for ease of installation in refurbishment schemes.
