Oldcastle Bathroom Pods Used to Complete the New Luxurious Broadmoor West Hotel Renovation


Colorado Springs, CO -- (ReleaseWire) -- 10/14/2014 --Oldcastle delivered 175 prefabricated bathroom pods for the newly renovated 5-Star Broadmoor West resort hotel in Colorado Springs, CO, helping GE Johnson Construction complete the hotel project within a tight time schedule.

GE Johnson Construction performed the $ 57 million project at the historic Broadmoor Hotel. The project involved a full “gut” renovation down to slab and rebuild of the entire stand-alone hotel. They also added 31 rooms to the building. The 26 week schedule was extremely aggressive, but GE Johnson hit it with help from Oldcastle Modular’s prefabricated bathrooms, which were a critical part of their strategy.

Oldcastle worked closely with GE Johnson Construction throughout the planning, design, manufacture, and installation of the bathroom pods. The custom-built, prefabricated luxury bathrooms were extremely high end, five-fixture bathrooms which included double sinks, a stand-alone soaking tub, separate marble walled shower stall and a private toilet closet, in addition to a marble tiled floor.

The prefabricated bathroom pods, manufactured and outfitted at their Madera, CA plant, were shipped to the site and slid into the structure from the side, prior to erection of the façade. The ability of Oldcastle Modular bathroom pods to accelerate the project schedule was just one of the reasons GE Johnson included them in their integrated approach. Additionally, a hotel of this caliber demands a high level of finish. The factory controlled environment, where Oldcastle fabricates the bathroom pods, facilitates automation, precision, and strict quality control. The manufacturing environment of the factory allows Oldcastle Modular to deliver a superior finished product.

General contractor GE Johnson Construction, Colorado Springs and Denver, completed the vertical expansion and complete reconstruction two days ahead of schedule, more than 200,000 sq. ft. of ultra-high end construction in less than six months.

As stated by GE Johnson Construction:
Steve Bartolin, President and CEO of the Broadmoor, praised every member of the project team for this one-of-a-kind undertaking. Bartolin said, “A project like this doesn’t get done to this level of quality without a lot of talent and expertise. That’s what we saw here.”

Oldcastle is proud to have been a part of the team assembled for the renovation of the Broadmoor West hotel. The Broadmoor reopened on May 16, 2014 after a six-month renovation. Continuously completing projects which are new builds, this was Oldcastle Modular’s first contract for a hotel renovation project.
