We started Blokable in 2016 to change the way housing is developed, built, and owned, and to create a new way to convert land into housing. Our proprietary Blokable Building System (BBS) unlocks previously unavailable efficiencies through standardized, prefab housing components called Bloks, which can be combined and stacked into a variety of configurations, including high-density, multi-story residential. The combination of our prefab system with our vertically integrated design-build development model enables Blokable to deliver large scale, high quality, low-cost, human-centric housing solutions into regions suffering from the lack of housing options.
At Blokable, we approach development differently, reimagining how to develop low cost high quality housing by eliminating much of the inflated costs during the development process. At Blokable we're vertically integrated, which means we are always both the developer and the prefabricated building manufacturer, and in many cases also the long term owner. This gives us control over cost and schedule and aligns interests across the project. It also means we lead the project coordination and design from early planning through to site preparation, Blok delivery, project certificate of occupancy, and facilities management after the project is completed.
For the past 3 years, we have relied on external professional teams to lead much of our architecture and engineering development. We are now bringing many of these capabilities in-house and growing our internal team in order to develop stronger design to manufacturing workflows across multiple projects, teams, factories, and regions as well as to better manage our 3D design assets, databases, software, and hardware. We’re looking for leaders, innovators, and gurus in the building information modeling industry to execute the development of our BIM processes and assets for building and executing the future of 3D CAD and design for the prefabricated housing industry.
