Hello FriendofGold,

During new construction before many of the walls and doors are placed in a home, it is much easier to get large single section tubs and showers into the install location. Once those walls and doors are up it can be very difficult if not impossible to get the units into place. A typical bathroom door is around 30" a full size single shower is likely going to be 36" at a minimum. Even if you consider removing a door the surrounding walls can also cause issues. Multi-piece units are preferred in renovation for this reason. The unit can be brought to the install location in small manageable sections and then assembled into the final form. I hope this helps.
