When guests begin staying at the Baha Mar and Grand Hyatt luxury hotels in Nassau, Bahamas, in April, they might not realize there is a secret behind the beautiful, high-quality bathrooms in the properties' guestrooms. Unlike traditional construction, the 1,800 Oldcastle SurePods™ bathrooms were prefabricated in Florida and transported to the island nation in shipping containers.

The project team, led by China Construction America, Inc., chose the bathroom pods to eliminate thousands of man hours from the project site, while ensuring 5-star bathroom quality.

Oldcastle SurePods consolidate more than 10 trades – including electrical, plumbing and finishing work – into one prefabricated product. The prefabricated bathrooms are easy to lift, place and install, which helps save project developers time and money.

"In addition to the speed, simplicity, superior quality and safety benefits of modular bathrooms, two things stand out with this project," said Bill Seery, Director of Business Development for Oldcastle SurePods. "Installing 1,800 bathrooms in one project site is our biggest job to date. Second, was our ability to ship to an island that faces skilled construction labor shortages."
