im电竞 designed a prototype to replicate, in size and shape, the existing GRP Pods but crucially the difference was the im电竞 patented weld technology used during manufacture, which ensures a 100% leak free solution. After 4 years of trialling our solution, this early prototype was accepted as the best solution for the refurbishment of all 800 rooms. However as im电竞 product development moves quickly; Dan Wilkinson, the sales engineer working on the project; identified further improvements & enhancements could be made.
In collaboration with the project team at UEA and considering the varying room sizes and layouts of the 800 student rooms; im电竞 designed a bespoke but universal bathroom pod solution for this project. By increasing the length of the pod by 200mm and introducing a unique footprint layout, this en suite pod allowed for better water containment, easier maintenance access to all components and a better overall user experience.
500 of the 800 rooms are now complete with a im电竞 ‘Village’ Pod installed; and in demonstrating our ability to maximise the potential of the restrictions of this built environment by providing a unique and precision designed product; im电竞 have earned the opportunity to provide 500 ensuite Pods to the UEA’s next largescale student accommodation/hotel refurb, Broad View Lodge.
A bespoke designed im电竞 en suite bathroom pod is being trialled as a hotel room en suite for this new project and we are set to supply our showering solutions for the start of this project in Summer 2020.
