The Surface: An Industry-Specific Blog

Successful Residence Hall Construction and Renovations Start with Solid Surface Showers

November 22, 2021

When it’s time to renovate an outdated residence hall or construct a new facility, the bathrooms are often the most complex portion of the project — but they also provide the most bang for the buck. This is true especially when outmoded (or even original) surfaces and fixtures need to be replaced.

From mechanical considerations to questions of layout and design, such renovations and construction projects require extensive planning and the specification of durable, hardworking materials that will stand up to the rigors of university life.

The Advantages of Solid Surface

Residence halls are a student’s home away from home. Therefore, it’s important that these spaces are designed with a few key considerations in mind, including comfort, safety and cleanliness.

Universities and college campuses choose solid surface showers for their residence hall renovations, remodels and new construction projects for several important reasons.


Some are most attracted by the durability of true solid-surface materials -- these shower bases and wall partitions last and last, reducing the need for replacement and saving you time and money. And if scuffs or scratches do occur, they can simply be buffed away.


Showers created with solid surface shower bases and walls are resistant to microbes and bacteria, providing a longer-lasting clean and protecting students. Plus, the smooth expanse of solid surface eliminates the need for grout and makes cleaning quick, easy and effective.
