Somerset bathroom firm closes multi-million pound deal to supply London development near Westfield
Somerset’s manufacturing company Offsite Solutions continued a recent streak of £ 1million deals by winning a contract to supply ready-to-use bathroom units to one of the world’s largest development programs building for rent from UK.
The Highbridge-based company will supply nearly 1,000 bathroom modules for the £ 670million Cherry Park project in London, which is being developed by Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield (URW).
The residential project, located next to the Westfield Stratford City shopping center, is expected to create approximately 1,200 new rental homes in 11 buildings, including three residential towers and 11-storey courtyard house buildings.
The mixed-use development is part of a larger planned transformation of Stratford city center and the London 2012 Olympic Village into a build-to-lease location.
Offsite Solutions will manufacture a total of 991 steel-framed bathroom modules at its Isleport Business Park plant in Highbridge in two phases, which will run simultaneously.
The deal is the latest in a series of contracts the company has been awarded this year. In April, it won a £ 1.6million contract to supply 327 steel-framed ready-to-use bathrooms for a new housing estate in central Milton Keynes.
In May, the company announced that it had supplied more than 1,400 shower stalls under contracts worth more than £ 3million for three student housing programs.
Late last year he also manufactured 136 pods for the £ 11.8million Ibis Plaza hotel at Woodlands Court Business Park in Bridgwater, Somerset.
Offsite Solutions’ latest project in London follows its involvement in other large-scale residential developments in the city, including Wood Wharf, a private rental program in Canary Wharf, and South Quay Plaza for Berkeley Homes in the Docklands. from London.

James Stephens, Managing Director of Offsite Solutions, said the company’s latest contracts reaffirm its position as “one of the leading bathroom module specialists in Europe”.
Mr Stephens said: “We think it is extremely positive that the pods for these phases of Cherry Park are made here in the UK. This is an upscale residential development and this is strongly reflected in the quality of the bathrooms.
Keith Whitmore, URW’s European Director of Construction Management, added: “One of the main drivers of Cherry Park was to use offsite construction as much as possible to create efficiencies, support our Better Places 2030 CSR program and contribute to safer working environments by reducing on-site numbers.
“The Offsite Solutions team met all of our design requirements with a high level of commitment at all levels, and working with them went seamlessly despite the complexities of this project and the pandemic. “
The Cherry Park program will provide one, two, three and four bedroom homes with facilities including a gym, swimming pool, workspaces and play areas.
