PIVOTek delivered, manufactured and installed 312 prefabricated bathroom PODs, with 12 different configurations.
The National Research Council says that prefabrication
When we look at a construction project, if repetition or difficult conditions exist, efficiencies can be gained. With the Hilton Des Moines Downtown hotel, we knew there would be five floors of repetition, and our mindset going into the build was to maximize our Lean construction disciplines on these floors. Bathroom PODs were identified as having the capability to provide several efficiencies such as Nothing Hits the Floor, Just-in-Time Delivery and additional prefabrication options – all of which enables a better construction experience for our customers.
Owners can change the way their projects are delivered by asking for prefabricated building systems. Prefabrication leverages the gains manufacturing has made over the years, applying them to construction. This will ultimately change how projects are delivered, with owners having the most to gain from a more efficient design-build process.
The future of design and construction is about finding efficiencies and building a faster, cheaper and better quality product. Design for manufacture and assembly (DFMA) incorporates all those elements under one roof, stated several industry experts during a recent presentation on the future of modular construction.
Located just minutes from our current location, our new production facility will increase PIVOTEK’s production capacity while maintaining PIVOTEK’s high quality manufacturing standards.

Now versus 10 years ago, many health care clients are doing a lot with the coordination of technologies between the hospital and building systems. That includes evaluating and working to minimize space requirements throughout the design process. It’s also creating an opportunity for a lot of prefabrication.
