ORLANDO, Fla., Sept. 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Oldcastle SurePods™, the leading provider of prefabricated bathroom pods in North America, announced today that worldwide hospitality company, Marriott International, Inc., has published Oldcastle SurePods™ documentation within the Marriott Global Design prototype documents. As an international lodging leader, Marriott strives to partner with owners and franchisees to streamline the construction process, and use resources wisely. Prefabricating the bathrooms offsite in a factory setting while simultaneously beginning work on the project site condenses the project schedule and provides discerning Marriott guests with superior quality factory built bathrooms.
In an effort to simplify the process of including factory built bathrooms in the design and planning for new construction projects, Marriott has posted SurePods™ 3D Revit models, specifications and shop drawings on the Marriott Buzzsaw document storage platform. The objective is to streamline the process from inception to delivery of the bathrooms and allow owners to maximize the benefits of SurePods™, schedule certainty, cost certainty, and better quality. SurePods™ brand compliant and Marriott reviewed bathroom models posted on Buzzsaw include Courtyard by Marriott, Residence Inn by Marriott and Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott.
"We have long valued our working relationship with Marriott and are honored to have been selected to offer SurePods™ standardized hotel bathroom models in Marriott's easily accessible online portal. We believe this will simplify the process allowing franchisees and their AEC professionals to use a plug and play approach to bathroom construction," said Bill Seery, Director of Business Development for Oldcastle SurePods™. "Every bathroom pod represents 100 labor hours. When you consider taking all those hours off the site and bringing them into the factory, think about the impact on project schedules and project management and how that can improve the bottom line."
