Although we don’t often think about it, bathrooms are one space that must be everywhere in society — in public and private places alike. People run to the restroom any time of day for many reasons, which requires facilities to have them at the ready.

Make the addition of your public or commercial bathrooms easier with a modular option. These spaces are mobile, so you can move them wherever you need facilities. They also have a durable construction that will last and cost less than site-built alternatives. If you need to add bathrooms, consider fully customizable modular restrooms.

What Are Modular Restrooms?

In a 2018 survey of architects, contractors and engineers, more than 87% said they outsourced at least some of their building’s construction to offsite work due to offsite construction’s many benefits. Modular bathrooms can be one element of this offsite construction plan.

Manufacturers create modular restrooms by piecing together interior fixtures and components such as the walls, floors and ceilings. Once the finished bathroom modules arrive onsite, workers fit them onto the building and connect them to the main construction’s electricity and plumbing.

Prefabricated bathrooms allow for faster completion of your project because the manufacturer can work on all its parts at once. They can put together all the rooms and install fixtures in them at the same time. This process hastens construction and requires only piecing the components together on site.

Choosing modular commercial bathrooms for your construction allows you reap numerous benefits including faster developments and customization ability for fixtures.

Prefabricated Restroom Applications and Benefits

Modular restrooms have multiple applications. Places that frequently use these construction options include parks, office facilities, outdoor bars, sporting facilities, and more.  And these commercial uses are only the beginning of modular bathrooms’ applications. In many cases, those types of construction use shipping containers as free-standing facilities.

In the National Institute of Building Sciences’ 2018 survey, respondents reported the most significant benefits of offsite construction — which includes modular buildings — are a shorter project schedule, high product quality and cost-effectiveness of the process. Some of the most commonly cited advantages of modular commercial bathrooms include:

Customization

By piecing together the exact components you want in your restroom, you can ensure your facility meets building codes and industry standards while exceeding your own expectations.

Efficiency

If you choose prefabricated bathrooms for your building, you can enjoy less waste and less time. Compared to on-site work, factory manufacturing has 250% greater efficiency. Construction materials fall under greater control. As a result, sites produce only around 1.5% waste material. Waste in onsite construction work can be five times greater — a total of 7% or higher.

High-Quality Construction

Since most work occurs in one place, work crews keep your bathrooms’ fixture in a protected area. You don’t need to worry about water damage to the construction’s components since they stay inside the factory until they go inside your restroom. Then the fixtures remain protected in the finished bathroom during delivery and installation.

Speed

Because modular construction happens offsite, you can start manufacturing your facility’s bathrooms as quickly as you please. They’ll then be ready to go as soon as you’re able to install them. By finishing your bathroom’s construction without delay, you can shorten the total time until move-in.

Knowledge

When you complete a construction project on-site, you’ll need enough workers with the know-how to get everything done efficiently. However, many parts of the country have shortages of knowledgeable employees. On the other hand, a factory that manufactures modular spaces can focus on several projects in one place. Fewer skilled professionals can service sites for more clients more efficiently.

Commercial Uses for Customized Prefab Restrooms

Modular commercial bathrooms have several uses, including:

Parks and Recreational Areas

Recreational areas like state parks, dog parks, skate parks, and sporting fields are all are perfect applications for shipping container bathrooms. Containers bathrooms are great when people want a more comfortable and permanent option than porta-potties. Not to mention they're better looking!

Outdoor Restaurants and Bars

Owners of outdoor bars and restaurants need an outdoor space for patrons to relieve themselves and freshen up after eating and drinking. If the original structure is already a shipping container, what's better than matching it with another container structure?

Office Facilities

One of the most common additions to businesses' facilities when going through expansions are a bathroom. Shipping container restrooms can be built completely custom to your work facilities needs.

Remote Job Sites

Workers in the remote industries such as petroleum and other power generation type sites will especially appreciate the mobile nature of shipping container bathrooms and their ability to deploy to remote locations at rural drill sites.

Benefits of Shipping Container Restrooms

Converted shipping container buildings are useful in many applications — and using them specifically for restrooms can provide many additional advantages. These include:

 

Ease of Assembly

The exterior shell — which is made from a shipping container — comes already assembled in its finished state. The manufacturer then pieces together the extra elements you request at the factory. You also have the option to add windows, doors, additional insulation, specialty fixtures and more.

Convenience

Depending on your jobsite, you may need a freestanding building. Drilling sites and other remote locations often lack plumbing and electrical hookup. You can also connect the shipping container restrooms to existing infrastructure. Parks, sporting venues and fairgrounds often prefer this option for its ease of installation.

Lack of Disruption

You can order multiple shipping container bathrooms for your site. Installation onsite takes much less time than if you had constructed a standard building on a slab. If you have an existing facility that needs additional restrooms, adding prefabricated container bathrooms will be a much simpler task than site-built construction.

Time Savings

If you need an outdoor bathroom facility built quickly, choose shipping container restrooms. These facilities complete manufacturing in half the time of traditional buildings. Several factors make this shortened time possible. Putting together the restroom components in one factory brings all the necessary talent in one place at the same time. Coordination among these groups ensures higher quality and faster completion. Additionally, rain and snow will not cause construction delays because everything occurs inside.

Public Uses for Modular Bathrooms

Public places — such as government office buildings — can also enjoy the benefits of modular restrooms.  Government agencies at all levels need to wisely use the money they have to remain accountable without sacrificing quality. Opting for bathroom modules for government offices can speed construction while saving taxpayer dollars in the process.

Decision-makers for the construction of local city halls, tax offices, public hospitals and even public schools should also consider the benefits of modular bathrooms. These fully functioning facilities often cost less compared to on-site construction. They look identical to traditionally installed units once in place, and the bottom line will be markedly better in cost savings.

Another use of modular bathrooms is to provide convenience at outdoor venues. Free-standing shipping container restrooms are especially popular for this purpose. Places such as public parks and school sporting venues can incorporate prefabricated public restrooms made from converted shipping containers.

Is Custom Designing Available for Shipping Container Bathrooms?

Not all public restroom companies allow you to customize your bathrooms. Some offer only a small handful of premade standard designs to choose from. But what if you want a bathroom that goes beyond those cookie-cutter models? Every business is different, and the shipping container bathroom design you select needs to reflect the needs of those who will use it. Full customization is the best choice for a modular bathroom.

Because commercial structures must adhere to standards such as ADA regulations, you should discuss your intentions for the restroom with the manufacturer. Adding ramps and accessible stalls, among other adaptations, will ensure your bathroom stands up to building codes.

Custom designing gives you the chance to adapt the building to your climate, too. You can integrate an HVAC system to keep the interior of the bathroom comfortable for all who use it.

Adding extra insulation for humid or frigid climates can improve the system’s performance and interior comfort levels. A skylight also increases the HVAC system’s efficiency by bringing in natural light without privacy-interrupting windows. It can even improve the warmth inside the restrooms during the winter by allowing sunlight inside.

Even your shipping container doors are customizable. With customization options, you can replace the traditional container entries with standard swinging doors for the comfort of the restroom’s users. For security, you can choose doors that lock to keep vandals out of the bathroom after your business closes each day.

What Is the Manufacturing Process for Modular Bathrooms?

While every company works differently, our manufacturing process is as follows.

First, you’ll tell us what you need and your budget. If you need help, we can give you information about the types of shipping containers available and customization options that fit into your budget and requirements.

If you choose a shipping container restroom, you’ll also have the option of how new your framework is. Shipping containers have three statuses that reflect the amount of use they’ve experienced. They can help you decide on the best container for your project.

  • New: New models have experienced the least use, with no more than one trip.
  • Used: Typically, used models only have cosmetic damage after three to seven years at sea.
  • Retired: The low price for retired shipping containers comes at the cost of having to do extensive repairs to bring them to useable condition.

If you need a modular design to incorporate into your construction, let us know. Also, specify your commercial use for the bathroom so that we can ensure building to code.

After selecting the exterior, you’ll need to choose how you want your bathroom customized. We’ll go through your options, and you can identify the components you want to make the facility useful and comfortable for those who will need it. We will then give you a timeline for your restroom’s completion.

What Delivery Options Are Available?

Once you have placed your order, we will then piece together the required parts at our facility and prepare the unit for delivery. In the meantime, take time to ready the delivery site. Clear the area and raise the land to prevent flooding. Install a slab foundation if you prefer. Shipping container bathrooms can also sit atop concrete blocks. Allow plenty of room for the delivery truck to reach the site.

The prefabricated public restrooms will almost be entirely ready for use when they arrive. After we deliver your shipping container bathroom, you may need to connect it to plumbing and electricity, depending on the options you chose. Add any desired landscaping at the end of the process to complete the finished look of the area.

Delivery options depend on your location and what you order. If you need more information about how and when we can deliver your restrooms, talk to one of our experts at BMarko Structures.
