Blokable was named a Bronze Award winner in the CleanTech Design category for the 15th annual Spark Design Awards. The CleanTech Design category honors products, services, and systems that combine great business ideas with modern design thinking.
The Spark Design Awards recognized Blokable for its all-electric Vertically Integrated Modular housing development, Blokable at Phoenix Rising, as well as Blokable’s 2030 manufacturing roadmap. A newly released NREL report, Decarbonization During Predevelopment of Modular Building Solutions, independently evaluates Blokable’s near-term roadmap for the advanced manufacturing and development of all-electric, NZE, multi-family housing. In the study, NREL compared Blokable’s prototype designs with its scaled-up, full production engineering model. The study found that by 2030, compared to conventional housing construction methods, Blokable’s model for the manufacturing and development of NZE housing can decrease total lifecycle GHG emissions by 60%, reduce construction material waste by 91%, and avoid the release of 2.4 million tons of CO2 equivalent. Moreover, when Blokable adopts this model, it can achieve these metrics without any added manufacturing or development costs.
