Replacing traditional bathroom construction, Oldcastle SurePods modular bathrooms are fabricated off-site in a controlled factory setting to exact project standards. The pods arrive finished and ready to install. They speed up construction while keeping man hours down, therefore a smart solution for the skilled labor shortage.

Oldcastle SurePods consolidate more than 10 construction trades – including electrical, plumbing and finishing work – into one prefabricated product. The prefabricated bathrooms are easy to lift, place and connect, which helps save the project developer time and money, while improving bathroom quality for the hotel owners and guests.

Given the benefits of prefabricated bathrooms, a number of California hospitality project teams are turning to modular construction, including: DavisReed Construction, slated to use SurePods in a Hilton Garden Inn in San Marcos and an AC Hotel by Marriott in San Diego; California-based Tucker Sadler Architects, the firm working with DavisReed on the AC Hotel by Marriott in San Diego; and Anaheim's new Cambria Hotel & Suites, the latest in the list of California hotels to use prefabricated bathroom pods.
