It’s safe to say this past year was filled with the unexpected—like staying nimble as we adjusted to new and ongoing issues in shipping and construction logistics. It’s also been filled with good. As the construction industry regained momentum, so too has the modular sector. Not only did we see five projects that feature our products open to the public, but we also opened our own new facility, SurePods West, to better meet demand. Because the construction industry is continuing to see the benefits of modular building, we expect to be just as, if not more, active in 2022. But before we toast to the new year, we want to reflect on a few 2021 highlights.
look-back at key projects
We were fortunate to support the opening of several building projects this past year. Our prefabricated bathroom pods helped contractors facing site challenges shave two months off the schedule for the JW Marriott in Charlotte, North Carolina. By collaborating on the Prism Apartments in the pre-construction phase, our design team made it easier for Consigli Construction to implement lean construction methods and stay on budget and on schedule. And not to be left out, one of the most unique projects to feature our products is Legoland Hotel in Goshen, New York.
Legos introduce so many people to the concept of modular building, so we were delighted to provide this hotel with modular bathroom pods. Plus, our prefabricated bathroom pods allowed the designers to have a consistent, high-quality bathroom that could be modified to fit the different room themes throughout the hotel.
Benefits of modular construction in the news
In addition to the fun projects we’ve been a part of, we’ve also enjoyed seeing the benefits of modular construction in the news. One article in commARCH explains how our bathroom pods helped Consigli Construction sideline challenges they faced in the Boston/Cambridge area, like complicated transportation logistics and a tight skilled trade labor market. If this sounds familiar, it’s because it is. These issues have plagued the construction industry across the country in the past couple years.
By consolidating up to 12 trades and eliminating the need for a punch list, our bathroom pods not only saved contractors from the headaches of coordinating different trades but also time throughout the building process. In fact, according to Dave Curry, Consigli Construction’s preconstruction director, our prefabricated bathrooms helped Consigli “accomplish what would traditionally require 100 hours of labor per bathroom in 10 minutes.”
Going behind the scenes
As developers increasingly turn to modular building to solve construction issues, we’ve seen more interest in our prefabrication process. Recently, the Construction Brothers stopped by SurePods to film a video about how our bathrooms are built and shipped to jobsites across the country.
This video highlights how our factory-controlled environments help ensure a quality product from start to finish and a safe work setting for our team. The video also explains how the process eliminates wastes to increase productivity. For a more in-depth discussion about prefabrication, the Construction Brothers interviewed Bill Seery, Vice President at SurePods, on their podcast.
Ending the year and beginning the next
These were just a few of the highlights from 2021. We are both grateful for what’s been accomplished and excited for what lies ahead (including more projects in healthcare and residential facilities). We could not have done any of this without our dedicated SurePods team and our innovative customers, so we’d like to end by saying thank you to everyone for helping make 2021 a year of growth and a year of change.

A statement basin is the way to go if you want an on-trend bathroom renovation in 2022. A bathroom basin, along with its tapware, accessories, and vanity, can add a stylish touch to your bathroom by creating a focal point.
But as bathroom basins are available in various designs, colours, and finishes. From organic to square, wall-mounted basins, inset, under-mount, semi-recessed basins, freestanding basins and much much more, choosing your bathroom sink is an overwhelming decision!
Selecting a bathroom basin appropriate for your household’s lifestyles and room layout is critical to successfully completing your bathroom renovations. So, let’s look at six bathroom basins that we have become increasingly dominant in 2021 modern bathroom designs, meaning they are likely to stay on trend for 2022 bathroom renovations!
A vessel basin stands entirely on top of your countertop, and as the name implies, is essentially a giant bowl, so it’s a perfect choice if you want a deep basin that can store a lot of water.
Unlike most countertop basins, which display a portion of the basin, vessel basins command attention and are an excellent way to make a statement in your modern bathroom design.
Although vessel basins still have their negatives, because of the basin height, careful planning of the bench height and the cabinets are required to ensure that the basin does not end up being too high and uncomfortable for users.
Although this is no worry for Novalé clients – from bathroom renovations Alexandria to bathroom renovations Newcastle – our skilled bathroom designers can ensure custom placement for all bathroom aspects tailored to the specific heights of household members!
Circular Countertop Basins
Although vessel basins make a stunning statement in a modern bathroom design, this mount has a few negatives. However, if you are set on the curvy and round trend, a surface mount basin could be for you as this basin shape offers a plethora of options and benefits!
Circular countertop basins are lovely for showcasing exquisite design features because the entire basin is exposed, making them ideal statement pieces. Countertop basins also provide more options for tap placement to ensure a more comfortable height for homeowners than conventional basins since they sit on top of the counter. Plus, in the case of bigger bowl sizes, they give a far better wash area.
A round above-counter basin exudes modern opulence with a simple and elegant appearance, creating a forceful yet subtle design statement. Like the basin in this bathroom renovation Redfern, soft curves give a spa-like atmosphere to a space when paired with a minimalist style and neutral tones.
With roots in mid-century retro, the coloured sinks from the ’70s are coming back in trend! 2022 is the year that coloured and bold accents make a comeback, adding some visual appeal to modern bathroom designs. However, your bathroom basin does not have to be super bright, just like in this Yattalunga, Central Coast bathroom renovation, which complements the warmer tones of the timber vanity with a warm bowl basin, taking neutral minimalism to all new heights.
To Match the Bright Sinks, Tapware and Accessories will Also Trend in Unconventional Colours
Forget about chrome as your only option; there are now so many stylish colours and finishes to choose from! Chrome has long been the most popular option for bathroom faucets and other accessories, but designers now favour warm metals like copper, bronze, brass, and nickel for taps and accessories.
Warm metal tones work well in practically every bathroom colour scheme. There are so many different designs that you can discover items that will fit with anything from an industrial bathroom to a timeless, vintage, or ultra-modern bathroom renovation.
It’s time to transform your drab faucet ware into a work of art! Tapware, in any case, is no longer in the background; they’re here to make a statement in modern bathroom designs, just like the gold embellishments in this Kurrajong Heights, Central Coast bathroom renovation.
Most Importantly, Environmentally Conscious Sinks Will Trend
Maybe due to recent international events or just because people are waking up to the necessity of caring for the earth; nevertheless, sustainability is a principle that drives modern bathroom design. Water-saving appliances may take various forms, from installing water-saving taps, toilets, and showers to using sustainable, up-cycled, and recycled bathroom furnishings.
Particularly in trendy areas of Sydney, we have seen the sustainability trend, such as recycled flooring and upcycled basins, be extremely popular such as Redfern bathroom renovations and bathroom renovation Alexandria.
Floating sinks are becoming increasingly popular as they improve the usefulness and aesthetics of small bathrooms (particularly powder rooms) in 2022. Clearing the area beneath a sink increases the airiness of a small bathroom renovation and makes the space appear larger.
Floating sinks improve the attractiveness of your bathroom, whether they are constructed of wood, marble, or any other material. Just like the floating vanity in this Redfern bathroom renovation which gives the space a contemporary touch while keeping a pristine area with little to no clutter.

As predicted last year, the global market for modular construction has been on an upward trajectory. Experts forecast that growth will continue through 2028, a trend which makes sense considering current market conditions. Modular construction not only makes it possible to expedite the process of designing and assembling building systems, but it also offers unique solutions to labor shortages and supply chain issues that are predicted to linger.
Because bathrooms are a repeated element throughout a building, we’ve seen firsthand how designers and contractors are turning to prefabricated, modular bathroom pods for the above benefits and to stay on track in a time when predictability seems near impossible. While the advantages of modular construction drive its increasing popularity, they also imply future construction trends.
Below are some developments we’re anticipating for 2022 and how modular construction methods can meet the moment and benefit workers, contractors and clients in the process.
More developers will turn to alternative methods to combat shipping challenges
Ideally, just-in-time shipping streamlines construction, but, as we have seen the past few years, supply chain issues can disrupt this approach. Stalled shipments can create congested jobsites and compound delays, all of which affect the bottom-line. For example, if a material is delivered late, its arrival might coincide with another material’s. Crews would then have to scramble to move materials to accommodate the late shipment. Delays further impact construction by altering when skilled trades, like plumbers and electricians, can do their work.
To combat ongoing shipping challenges, more developers and contractors will turn to alternative construction methods to keep materials and projects moving. Modular bathrooms, for example, can be built offsite as the building area is being prepared, which accelerates a job’s timeline. Then, when the site is ready, these pods can be delivered and installed at just the right moment. Secondly, because parallel construction makes it possible to secure materials prior to weathering in, alternative methods can help simplify logistics and provide more control over volatile market conditions.
Labor shortages will continue
Contractors across the nation are having difficulty finding skilled workers. With more people retiring from construction and fewer people entering the industry, it will remain key to look for ways to replenish the workforce. We at SurePods know that building a better future starts with people. Because prefabrication offers consistency, predictability and safety, it is the perfect entry point for those new to the trade.
Sustainability will remain a focus
Sustainability is increasingly becoming an industry standard. Modular construction is an attractive solution as the process is typically more material and waste conscious than conventional methods. For instance, prefabricated modular bathrooms use recycled steel and wallboard and comply with strict quality standards from production through installation. These standards mean a long-lasting product with fewer repairs and replacements over its lifetime.
Further, the use of automated processes translates to more precise products and fewer mistakes, resulting in less material and energy waste due to rebuilds.
Even with the above constraints, more developers will specify custom builds
Advances in modular construction have given designers more freedom to customize their projects while still enjoying all the benefits of prefabricated construction, debunking the myth that repeatable units means cookie cutter designs. Because our current technology allows us to prefabricate better than ever, we can accommodate more design flexibility, solving site specific issues upfront. This includes creating tailor made, enterprise-wide solutions that can be used for multiple projects.
Modular presents tomorrow’s solutions today
These are just a few of the things we see driving the construction industry in 2022. Whether the need is for a leaner design or a method for mitigating material and labor shortages, modular bathroom pods are an easy first step into prefabricated construction.

>If you’re looking for a fresh, timeless, and elegant bathroom space you need to include a splash of marble and lucky for you, we have put together the best ways to introduce marble into your bathroom.
Whether that be on your walls, floor or basin area – marble is a must!
The beauty about marble is that you can introduce it to your bathroom, en-suite or cloakroom is so many ways and it doesn’t always have to cost a fortune.
So, sit back, grab a drink and we will talk you through some of the best ways to introduce marble into your bathroom.
Why Opt For a Marble Bathroom?
Marble is the perfect choice when it comes to bathrooms. It compliments every finish, from brushed golds to brushed nickels. The veins work seamlessly to add texture and style to any space.
Additionally, it carries with it the notion of complete luxury and class. Afterall, we all know how expensive it can be but with the latest technology, you can now find your ideal marble at a much lower cost!

1. Introduce a Marble Floor
A Carrara marble floor is a no brainer when it comes to redesigning your bathroom. Use larger tiles and stick to a lighter hue, such as white marble, creams, and beiges, to create the illusion of a bigger space.
Perhaps you want a fully tiled space (Wetroom)? Make sure you use porcelain tiles as they have better slip resistance rating. You should look for a marble tile with an R rating – this is based upon health and safety tests that deter how slip resist your tiles are.

2. Create a Marble Shower Wall
Add a touch of marble to your bathroom design, with a marble shower wall in your master bathroom. Using marble as a statement wall will add depth and hotel luxury style to your bathroom.
Whether you have a walk-in shower design or enclosure, make sure you opt for a marble that will enhance your brassware.
Opt for contrasting colours, patterns and textures for a standout effect!

3. Marble Basin
A marble shower wall might be too much marble for your liking. If that’s the case then go for a marble basin. Nothing says opulence quite like marble basin does. Whether that be a marble countertop basin or having a custom-made marble slab top added to your vanity unit.

4. Geometric Marble Floor
If the classic marble veins just don’t do it for you, take a look at the beautiful geometric marble patterns you can introduce to your bathroom.
A little bit bolder than your standard marble, geo marble tiles come is a variety of styles, colours and patterns to fit your own personal preference. We recommend using geo-marble patterns as your bathroom flooring to add interest to your space without overpowering it.
Top tip for those on a budget – You can purchase geometric marble floor stickers to mimic real floor tiles

5. Marble Clad Bath Panel
Tired of looking at your standard tub but don’t want to spend an arm and a leg? Why not clad your bath with marble? It’s cost-effective way to include marble whilst spicing up the way your bath looks.
Up the luxury even more by pairing your new bath cladding with beautiful a modern bath shower mixer tap. It will give the ultimate elegant vibe to your space.
6. Introduce a Marble Bath

A marble bath, as you can imagine, is rather pricey but boy, do they look incredible! Available in darker marble and lighter hues, a freestanding bath is for those who want to create a focal point.
Better suited for those with a larger a space, a marble tub will transform any space.

7. Use Marble Wallpaper
Another great design idea is if you want to add marble on a budget and don’t want to commit to tiles, consider marble wallpaper. Paper brands now offer make specially made wallpaper for warm, damp spaces such as the bathroom. Wallpaper works well in small bathrooms such as the downstairs loo because they are a lot less damp and wet compared to the upstairs bathrooms with a shower or bath.
If you’re learning towards marble wallpaper, there are a few things you can do to help maintain the paper:
Ensure you have good ventilation. This could be an extractor fan, keeping the window open slightly during baths & showers.Apply a clear acrylic varnish over the installed wallpaper to boost its resistance to moisture and heat.

8. Black Marble Bathroom Design
Leave the white walls behind and create a showstopping space by creating a black and white marble wet room. The dark marble and white veins will create a beautiful stark contrast, perfect for those that love a monochrome look.
The dark backdrop of the marble provides a dramatic canvas for you to add delicate brassware features. We recommend the brushed gold brassware to create a classy, modern room.

9. White Marble Bathroom

White has always been one of the most popular choice’s when it comes to bathrooms and it’s no wonder, when it can look this good.
White marble offers a crisp, fresh, and calming feel.
A complete white space, including tiles on the floor, is always a popular choice for those who like a clean, timeless bathroom space.
Using larger tiles in a smaller bathroom will help enhance the space and make it look less cluttered. With fewer grout lines and a larger surface area on the walls and falls will maximise Less grout lines and a larger surface will expand your bathroom.
10. Marble Herringbone Tiles
Herringbone has made a big comeback in the last 12 months and continues to grow in popularity. So, it makes perfect sense to blend two key trends (marble & herringbone) into one beautiful tile.
Marble herringbone tiles are the ideal to create modern splashbacks. Plus, you’ll save money opting for a splash back rather than tiling a full wall.
The tiles will work beautifully, especially when combined with black wall mounted taps.

How To Clean Marble Tiles?
Marble can scratch and damage easily, so it’s essential that it is cleaned with soft cotton clothes along with mild cleaners and detergents. Avoid strong chemicals on your marble at all costs as they can cause corrosion.
Is Marble to Slippery for a bathroom or Shower?
Marble can be extremely slippery once wet. You can combat slipping hazards by putting a bath rug or bath matt down to cover the floor and avoid any nasty falls. Honed marble, which is marble that has been ground to a smooth, flat surface tends to be less slippery than polished marble floors.
