PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 15, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- PDM Constructors / Durapods, a Pennsylvania based manufacturer of factory-built bathroom pods, will be providing pre-manufactured bathrooms to Walsh / Turner Joint Venture for The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center Inpatient Hospital. The 1.9 million-square-foot inpatient hospital will be the largest single facilities project ever undertaken at Ohio State with up to 820 beds in private-room settings to elevate patient-centered care, safety, and training for the next generation of physicians. PDM/Durapods will be manufacturing 740+ bathroom pods for this project.
Pre-fabrication Practices Reduce Construction Timeline
Utilizing pre-manufactured bathroom pods for this project will improve the progression of construction while maintaining a high level of quality. It will also help provide a greener solution since traditionally, pre-fabrication reduces material waste. A win-win for the health center.
Durapods is very excited to be working with Walsh / Turner Joint Venture on this important project in Ohio," said Craig Melograno, President at PDM Constructors / Durapods. "We feel we have the ability to provide a POD that is far superior to what has been traditionally available in the US which will be a great benefit at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center Inpatient Hospital," added Melograno.
The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center Inpatient Hospital partnered with AE/Design Architect, Henningson, Durham & Richardson (HDR), along with Walsh / Turner Joint Venture for this project which, once open, will provide high-quality, comprehensive health services. The hospital is scheduled to open in the summer of 2026.
