Modular Bathroom "PODS"
When should you use B&T Manufacturing pods?
Layout types minimized
Efficiency in construction just makes sense. Reducing the amount of bathroom and kitchenette layouts is the recipe for success. Off site manufacturing of Pods requires a battery of design challenges to be solved for each layout, so spreading this effort across multiple units using the same layout is necessary to make Pods more economical than standard site built construction. We recommend at least 20 units per layout for the financial benefits of using Pods to be ensured.
Shipping volume is maximized
Unless your new construction is in Rapid City, SD, your Pods will need to take a road trip. The dimensional goal for the height and width of a Pod is 8' 6" to keep transportation cost effective. The most economical option for interstate travel will be a 53' dry van, but a variety of transportation options exist to get Pods of any size to your job site.
Bathroom and kitchenette Pods are built for projects before the ground even breaks. Because of this, the Pod finishes need to be selected early.
B&T Manufacturing will assist in establishing how the Pods will be hooked up to MEP systems early in development, or let our team define these connections for you so installation is seamless.
Plug and play
B&T Manufacturing Pods leave our factory weather tight and ready for use. You can trust our quality as we utilize progress photos and videos, third party inspections, and an intensive internal quality assurance program. Choose B&T Manufacturing and your next Pod experience will be as straightforward as installing a new appliance.

Using job tested techniques such as template jigs for plumbing penetrations to proprietary jacks for movement, B&T Manufacturing will ensure your Pod job is done right!
On time, done right.
