Thanksgiving is right around the corner, which means 2021 is quickly coming to a close. In looking back, we can all say the year has presented several challenges: the ongoing pandemic, prolonged supply chain issues and the volatile cost of materials, to name a few. We at SurePods have risen to meet these challenges, helping to mitigate market-wide delays, skilled labor shortages and complex jobsites to keep our customers’ projects moving forward. To push onward in the face of these continued and evolving challenges is no small feat, and we couldn’t have done it without our incredible team.
Whether in our original Orlando, FL, location or our new SurePods West facility in Phoenix, AZ, our skilled employees have been working together to solve the problems 2021 has presented head on. Both locations have helped ensure our prefabricated bathroom pods reach construction sites across the country as quickly as possible while maintaining the strict quality standards we’re known for. This means hours spent daily behind the scenes prefabricating bathrooms, verifying quality control and creatively accelerating shipping logistics to ensure the pods are delivered and installed right and right on time.
We are thankful for the hard work and innovation of our team that has made this all possible—from those on the design and fabrication side to the shipping team and project leads advocating for modular methods. Each person has played a critical role in the success of the prefab process. We are also thankful our team has been able to continue production safely in our controlled work environment; their wellbeing is the foundation of our company. And in a two-year stretch of unprecedented challenges, we are thankful we have been able to scale up production to meet new and exciting commercial opportunities on both sides of the country.
For example, without our collective team, we wouldn’t have been able to supply prefabricated bathroom pods to complex healthcare and multifamily projects like Atrium Health in North Carolina and Prism Apartments in Massachusetts. Our increased focus on the healthcare market has also allowed us to take on new challenges, like supplying our first nested pod design to Banner Health’s Gateway Medical Center in Arizona (also our first SurePods West project).
Finally, we certainly could not have done any of this without our customers. We thank all of you for being on the cutting edge of technology, for making construction faster, smarter and more sustainable!
