We were engaged to design, construct and deliver 120 modular bathrooms and cold form steel framing for 30 duplexes (60 units). BIM modelling was utilised to design the framing and trusses for these units, and the integration of four bathrooms per duplex. This front loaded the design process so it could work in concert with other aspects of the build.
Given that cold form steel is not impacted by weather delays and the time efficiencies afforded by offsite manufacture of the bathrooms meant that the construction programme was able to be reduced.
The bathrooms featured tiling on all walls, level entry showers, underfloor heating and quality plumbing fittings.
