Tune Hotel Carlton


Tune Hotel Carlton


Number of pods


November 2013

international accommodation chain Tune Hotel’s first Melbourne project is a standout. Taking on board Tune’s mantra of ‘low cost but high quality,’ Arrow International specified Interpod’s modular bathrooms to reduce the time and costs spent across the entire project.

A significant amount of time was saved during construction because the pods could be manufactured as onsite work was ongoing. The ease of design and installation of the pods further pushed the fit out stage to an early start, allowing a considerable amount of overhead and P&G costs to be saved.

“Notwithstanding time and cost benefits, having the bathrooms manufactured in a controlled environment has made for far superior control over quality and allowed for regular checks and sign offs, ensuring the delivered product was defect free on installation,” said Matt Hall, Arrow International’s Production Manager.

Nearly 300 bathrooms had to be built over eight floors within a tight timeline. However, the compact size of bathrooms meant that trades would have to follow one another in traditional construction, stringing out the program significantly.
