Spotlight on International Projects
Like most industries, the construction sector experienced a whirlwind of changes in 2020 and beyond. With the cost of building materials skyrocketing and labor shortages increasing, more are turning to prefab building solutions for their lean manufacturing techniques and ability to help keep projects on track. As a result, the market for modular is growing as the construction industry continues to adopt prefabricated solutions.
Here at SurePods we’re proud to support this growth—and even see it extend to distant places. With wide-ranging experience, our modular bathroom pods can ship to Canada and select international locations, depending on project needs. To showcase how we’ve seen modular building’s evolving technology help fuel innovation across the globe, we’re taking a look back at some noteworthy international projects that we’ve worked on to date:
Situated on Nassau’s northern shore, Grand Hyatt Baha Mar is a spectacular 1,800-room oceanfront resort that opened spring 2017. With two distinct towers and a variety of rooms, suites and residences, SurePods was the perfect match to prefabricate the beautiful custom bathroom units, all with 5-star quality. The pods were fabricated in Orlando, FL, and shipped to the jobsite via ocean container, eliminating thousands of man hours from the project site.
In the development of their new retirement community located in Ontario, Canada, Seasons Retirement Homes enlisted SurePods to deliver 147 beautifully designed bathroom pods for seamless “plug-and-play” installs across the U.S. border. With the grand opening scheduled for early 2022, SurePods was able to provide quality bathrooms in line with a tight and efficient construction schedule. Plus, each pod features materials and fixtures all carefully selected by the project design team.
Montreal, QC, Canada
Taking up over two full blocks in the heart of downtown Montreal, the Centre hospitalier de l’Université de Montréal (CHUM) is one of North America’s largest academic medical centers. To help replace the outdated facility’s bathrooms in such a large volume, SurePods took on their largest P3 project to date. Supplying 669 pods, our single-source approach supported the institution’s clinical design and programming solution that stresses quality and expedient solutions.
